Liquid composite molding (LCM) by vacuum bag molding is often used to form composite parts.
Composite molding methods include vacuum bag molding, pressure bag molding, and autoclave molding.
During the IBEX show, more than 75 production-quality "mini" catamarans were built using closed-mold processes such as Light Resin Transfer Molding (Light RTM), the Vacuum Infusion Process (VIP), and Closed Cavity Bag Molding (CCBM).
The service is aimed at both open and closed molding, including RTM and closed-cavity bag molding (CCBM).
Composites One also demonstrated its "light" RTM and "closed-cavity bag molding" (CCBM) processes.
