Project

Smart Silicon Vacuum Bag

The First-Time-Right project is almost coming to an end and all the components of the final demonstrator are being integrated. One of these components is the Smart Silicone Vacuum Bag. The silicone vacuum bag is a product produced by CT Platon in Werkendam in The Netherlands. The bag can be used during at least 400...

Acoustic Product Release
Project

Acoustic Product Release

Developing an automated demoulding method using sonic actuators. This research is carried out by Anouar Elsayed with the aim to investigate, develop and validate a method for automatically demoulding a composite part after vacuum infusion by utilising sonic elements. The composites industry has shown a significant growth over the last decade, there is constantly more demand...

3D Printed Mould
Project

3D Printed Mould

How can 3D printing technology be fully applied in making moulds for the vacuum infusion process? Assume there is a problem which every body is talking about. Let’s say you have a concept idea on how to solve the problem. But the traditional subtractive method of manufacturing is expensive an time consuming to implement your...

The Permeability Calibrator
Project

The Permeability Calibrator

Introducing a method to determine permeability values for vacuum infusion… To achieve the first time right dream, smarter and better solutions are always being researched to improve many of the methods used to create composite products. One of such methods is vacuum infusion. Unsuccessful infusion is one of the risks that come with this production process.  A genius...
