Thin walled, complex, high value structures – we love them.
Bicycle frames, baseball bats, hockey and lacrosse shafts, wings, battery cases, violin bows to name a few.
All of our bladder molded products utilize 3-dimensional silicone or latex bladders and our PLC controlled internal pressure system. The combination of 3D bladders and process control yield extremely tight tolerances in wall thickness, weight, surface cosmetics, and performance.
We focus on net shaped preforms that are 90-95% of the finished product geometry when it is placed into the tool. Our tool design and process equipment yield parts that come out of the mold requiring little or no finishing prior to paint.
We are well versed in prepreg structures and have developed a hybridized RTM and bladder molding process to create very high performance, low cost structures. In-house fabrication of CNC tooling, silicone and latex bladders makes for fast, cost effective product development.
