 RapidClave® Aerospace Technology:

  • Optimized composite cures for complex laminates of changing thickness and core sections
  • Reduced cycle time within bounds of resin chemistry
  • 0-350 psi (0-24 bar) pressure
  • 110°F-800°F (43°C-427°C) direct tool heating and indirect composite heating
  • Heating rate, dwell and cooling ramp accurately controlled within 5°F (2.8°C) of setpoint
  • Automatic tool change and connection of all tool/part services (heat/cool, TC, RTD, vacuum)
  • NEW induction heating with RocTool

Advantages:

  • High fidelity of cure in single part (non-batch) environment
  • Energy efficient process reduces process time and systemic cost of operation
  • Multiple tooling and heat/cool solutions
  • Simple recipe programming and comprehensive data acquisition and reporting
  • Enables single piece flow process automation- systemic factory floor efficiency
  • Reduced factory floor footprint
  • Right-sized process envelope for tool family size

Custom Automation for Composites Manufacturing:

 

In addition to Globe’s production-proven RapidClave® System, recent developments in high-capacity, automated manufacturing systems for advanced composites include:

  • Precision Tooling Positioners
  • Ultra-high Pressure Presslines for Plastic Armor
  • Automatic Lamination Machines for Thermoset and Thermoplastic Composites
  • Fully Integrated Workcells incorporating Globe core technologies (process heating/ cooling, tooling design, material handling, consolidation and forming, trim and prep for finishing)
