Tools for processing composite materials
Curing tools are predominantly parts made from steel or aluminium, which form a negative or female mould of the composite component. The components are laid up with carbon-fibre, aramide or glass-fibre matting and then cured under a vacuum in an oven, a so-called "autoclave". Since these are high-precision components, which are used in such fields as aviation, the moulds and tools must be manufactured with high levels of quality and precision.
