Long fiber RIM process delivers massive lightweight roof components


A US-based processor is using what's dubbed as the world's largest long fiber injection system to manufacture a two-piece roof made of polyurethane for agricultural machinery. A long-lasting paint surface is applied directly in the mold using IMP (in-mold painting) in a fully automated process.

German machine builder KraussMaffei ((Munich) delivered the machinery which employs a double-shuttle mold carrier system, for manufacturing the ultra-large lightweight components to Romeo RIM (Romeo, MI)....
