SMART TOOLING

Smart Tooling provides formable, reusable SMP Bladders and Smart Mandrels for manufacturing complex composites, resulting in significantly reduced labour and consumable costs and increased production rates. SMP Bladders act as rigid mandrels during lay-up and inflatable bladders during part curing. After the composite is applied on the rigid bladder, the SMP Bladder is placed in a curing mould. The mould is heated above the activation temperature of the bladder and inflated for composite part consolidation during cure. Once pressure is removed, the flexible SMP Bladder is easily removed from the cured part. Smart Mandrels are formable tools that are rigid during composite part curing and flexible above the cure temperature. The composite is applied on the formed Smart Mandrel and cured per the manufacturer specification. The temperature is then elevated above the activation temperature of the Smart Mandrel, allowing the now flexible tool to easily be removed from the cured part.
