MAKE YOUR PROCESS AUTOMATED
The complexity of a composite component and process will often create demands on the control of the tool and processing system. Our capability includes developing the automated features to better provide the control and functionality necessary in the tooling.
LMAT can provide PLC based systems to control the moulding process. With resin infusion systems we can provide the control of the gates in response to either optical or electrical sensor reports. We configure the PLCs to control the process including the tool closing, heating and ejection cycles. Our experience covers both composite open tools and closed mould implementations. We can also control the manipulation of the material constituents through to the handover of the part.
If you think we can assist you to understand and develop your process please contact us. We will happily share our advice and identify a route forward. All enquiries will be treated in the strictest confidence.
