Streamlining of heating process and shortening of processing time for CFRTP prepreg sheet materials

Technical Classification:
[ Molding ]
[ Equipment / Facilities ]
[ Far infrared heating ] [ heating before pressing ] [ streamlining of the heating process ]

Point of the Proposed Technology

■ Optimizing the heating process in the CFRTP molding processes, capable up to 400°C
■ Highly accurate heating process combining far-infrared heaters with hot-air heating
■ Offers the optimal transfer systems between the heating and pressing processes


Shortening of the heating time
Shortening of the length of the furnace of the heating system
Improvement of the heating accuracy
Labor-saving of the molding process

New Technology

Technology Deployment and Cooperation

Development Stage Commercialization Completed (already delivered: no)
Intellectual Property Right Yes
Joint Researchers (their role)
Example of Application Heat treatment before the pressing in the CFRTP molding process
Technical Problems Proposing accuracy improvement of the heating process before pressing, and short-time heating, as a line including a transfer system
Collaborator needed to Improve Automotive parts manufacturers, press process lines, R&D institutes for CFRTP materials
