ResinMix RTM Overview

The ResinMix system is adapted to meet different requirements for each market area. For the application using Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM), the unit is further evolved with the system having the ability to control the output dependant on mould pressure.

The system uses special geared Drive motors coupled precision metering pumps to enable the system to hold a material pressure in a mould.

The unit can be equipped with flowmeters to ensure the materials being processed are as specified during the process.
