Composite lamination molds

Weight reduction is becoming an increasingly popular trend. Through the use of additive manufacturing and machining techniques we can obtain molds that will later be used to build parts using the composite lamination technique. This technique is carried out layer by layer, all of them bonded, and allows us to combine the capabilities of different materials offering great flexibility when building our parts.

CIM UPC has extensive experience in obtaining fiberglass and carbon fiber parts with this technology.

Advantages

  • Lightness: Reduction of the total weight of the part without reducing its resistance, which brings other indirect advantages to the professional sector.
  • Resistance to external agents such as corrosion.
  • Reduction in the amount of material required to achieve the same strength levels.
  • Use of economical and environmentally friendly materials.
  • Low maintenance.

Applications

  • Molds for subsequent lamination.
  • Fiberglass parts: Widely used in sectors such as industry, construction, marine, telecommunications and the environment.
  • Carbon fiber parts: Widely used in sectors such as automotive and transportation, elite sports or the prosthetics industry.
