Acrolab supports the Composites industry with multiple products and services. Many clients contact us for thermal consultation for their composites applications. We work with you to provide thermal management services and components for your composite processing applications. Since all client needs are unique Acrolab technical experts work hand in hand with your team to ensure your requirements and expectations are clearly understood.
Acrolab has a 6 step approach to assist our clients.
In many pultrusion applications, the last zone or exit point produces a lot of excess heat. This heat is generated by sheer force of the material through the die, the exothermic reaction kick over of the resin, and the heat applied to the die(s).
Many clients contact Acrolab with many concerns during their pultrusion processes. One of those concerns is deep part or cavity features. In some cases, a line speed is solely dependent on one feature in the part. If one could eliminate these areas of concern and get heating/cooling to these areas, line speeds and part quality would improve dramatically.
Acrolab solves these deep cavity issue by implementing an array of Isobars either linear or perpendicular with the line of draw. This allows thermal energy during the heating phase to be driving right to these deep areas. During cooling phase it allows heat energy to be removed.
