At JEC World 2016 in Paris on March 8 to 10, RocTool (Le Bourget du Lac, France) will present live for the first time its new molding technology, Light Induction Tooling (LIT). The result of three years of research and development, LIT is now available to key industry segments including aerospace, automotive and transportation, explained Mathieu Boulanger, RocTool CEO.
LIT technology is fully adapted to thermoplastic and thermoset composites. It enables the production of very large parts and allows manufacturers to improve their existing production capabilities. RocTool LIT addresses challenges OEMs encounter in making cost-effective composite parts with quick cycle times. LIT technology does not require any compression press machines or special large forming presses that only a few manufacturers can afford. A light tooling structure integrates RocTool's induction heat technology and is connected to RocTool cooling units.
