Conformal composite molding

Moulage conformable pour composites

Abstract

An apparatus and method for resin transfer molding high strength fiber reinforced composite articles, especially those articles which by design would become locked onto the mold after cure. A compliant and variably rigid mold half (14) locates internal details (15), facilitates loading of material into smaller cavities, and is forgiving of bulk variations in the lay-up. The compliant mold half can be made rigid or flexible by pressure transmitted through a flowable media (22). After the article is molded and cured, the compliant mold half is collapsed for easy removal of the article.
