Vacuum pressing and forming of prepregs and technical fibers

Global Vacuum Presses is pleased to announce the successful installation and start-up of a customized vacuum membrane press with two press tables and infrared heating for the National Aerospace Laboratory (NLR) Netherlands.

The “Automated Composite Manufacturing Pilot Plant” is widely regarded as a key step in developing expert knowledge of composites in the Netherlands. Composites are increasing replacing steel or aluminium parts in the aviation industry; moreover, composites are often stronger, more sustainable, less expensive, and capable of being applied in a wide variety of areas. We wish NLR great success for the further development.
