Collaboration between Shape and Tencate for New Press Molding Technique

December 04 2017

Shape Machining Ltd has successfully demonstrated their capabilities in the field of advanced composites for automotive applications, through a recent collaboration with TenCate Advanced Composites.

SHAPE is developing processes that lower the cost of prototyping and speed up the demonstration of scalable composites manufacturing processes. Together with TenCate Advanced Composites, SHAPE designed and manufactured a technology demonstrator component specifically to be press molded using TenCate E732 snap-cure prepregs. The aluminum press mold tooling was designed and manufactured by SHAPE to enable hot pressing of first-off parts, curing in only 4 minutes. In total the project, from conception to delivery, took 9 weeks to complete.
