Hot air autoclave for composite

The curing or consolidation cycle in the autoclave is a key process in the production of fibre composite components in aerospace, automotive, medical technology, sports equipment and research. The autoclaving process guarantees a consistently high quality of complex components with the highest demands. A corresponding homogeneity and flexibility cannot be achieved by alternative processes such as e.g. the pressing process.
