Compression moulded parts
TenCate CCS Composites, has design tooling and fabrication expertise for compression moulded parts. TenCate manufactures bulk moulding compounds and specializes in high performance, tight tolerance parts with difficult geometries. CCS Composites has experience in designing parts for space, aircraft, thermal management and industrial/commercial applications.Compression moulding is a common alternative for complex geometry structure that limits the use of laminate style composites. Typical reinforcements are carbon and glass chopped fibre.
Compression Moulding Features/Benefits
Compression molding offers both cost and weight savings by allowing complex composites parts to be fabricated in high volume with short cycle times. Typically compression molded parts using chopped fiber bulk molding compounds are used to replace metal parts for weight savings. However honeycomb stiffened composite parts have been replaced with compression molded solid parts. TenCate can design the part, fabricate the tooling and then move into full production to support your needs.
