Roctool and Krauss-Maffei start a collaboration
Krauss-Maffei is currently exploring the RocTool’s Cage System® technology as a new innovative moulding technology. The German injection machine provider and the innovative French firm are adapting a new process combination which should reduce cycle time and increase surface quality for LFI parts.
The Krauss-Maffei patented LFI (long-fibre injection) process is a cost-effective method of manufacturing light-weight, glass-fibre reinforced PU parts and the Cage System® is a RocTool patented process which heats only the tool surface in order to achieve a fast cycle time.
RocTool and Krauss-Maffei will present the results of this collaboration mid 2006 with a full scale demonstration.
