Heated composite moulds allow to easily change the temperature of the mould, being able to precisely adjust it within a very short time. This reduces energy waste, because heat is applied directly to the mould walls.
Very useful in series production runs, where the mould needs to be manipulated to extract the finished part and needs to be re-heated to working and curing temperature in a very short time frame.
- Electric heating: The mould contains a mesh of heating wire, divided in multiple zones. Temperature and safety sensors are added to avoid overheating. Depending on the size of the moulds, control and supervision systems are also provided.
- Liquid heating: It provides finer temperature control, because it allows a more uniform heat distribution. Easy to maintain, and particularly suited for pre-impregnated materials.
