Thermoplastic Carbon Reinforced Surffin
How it is possible to leave, traditional, well known and proven technology behind and build trust in a complete new solution ?
What must be done and obvious favourable to change from existing well working technologies like RTM to new design and production technology for surfing fins made in our svismold concept ?
Especially the fin is something which is most discussed, emotionally charged and for a lots of riders the “game changer” for having fun when surfing … Please follow our story, why a UD-Tape reinforced Thermoplastic fin could be a better solution !
Find out ...
- how this development worked out to a very well accepted new product
- why “Light-weight” design must not be always end in weight reduction as key success factor
- why if you are looking for a precise design of product properties, a cost effective production, continuous process quality and control and last but not least product design. Your product idea could be our next challenge
The svismold – benefits
Predevelopment - free of charge
Continuous process control - 100% camera inspection
Network of Research partners
Simulation and mechanical testing
Precise design of mechanical properties by tape laying where needed
UD-Tape unique possibility to utilize fibres in a most cost and mechanical
Long experience in Thermoplastic Composite Serial production
Weight reduction possible
"Without the support and expertise from svismold the H4 fin project would not have been possible. Their outstanding and ability to turn our original idea into a quality and innovative end product has been outstanding." FCS Australia
The svismold Technology
Svismold translates well known products made of metal, duroplastic/ RTM, aluminium or conservative injection moulding technology in : lighter, stiffer, and well designed thermoplastic composite designed. For this we are using state-of-the-art developing methods and the best materials on the market. Which are unidirectional thermoplastic tapes, of carbon, glass and other fibres, prepregs and corresponding polymers. Our speciality: ready falling manufacturing of thermoplastic composites, which is very material and cost saving.
The svismold production
We are working on for Thermoplastic composite production well working tie-bar less ENGEL Moulding machines connected to a KUKA robot cell. Within our svismold robot cells we could integrate additional process steps, like surface and mechanical finishing and of course in-line 100 % quality control. We prefer for sourcing safety reasons regional European sourcing for our raw materials, polymers and composite prepregs.
