23 VRTM: Advantages: Relatively Low cost tooling High quality laminates can be produced Control of A and B surfaces Control of thickness Cycle times can be improved Repeatability Resolves environmental and H&S issues Process can be de-skilled Disadvantages: Higher tooling costs (compared to open moulding) Tooling manufacture and design requires knowledge and skill Some investment in equipment is necessary

41 The link from RTM to Infusion:

42 Resin Infusion: Advantages: Low entry cost Low cost tooling Viable on large scale High quality laminates can be produced Helps to resolve environmental and H&S issues Disadvantages: Skilled process Only one fully controlled surface Relatively slow (compared to RTM) Relatively high consumable costs (compared to RTM) Relatively wasteful (compared to RTM)

43 Recognising the need for an alternative to the manual resin mixing/handling process

44 The principal of using a machine to feed mixed resin directly into the infusion mould with pressure feed-back control (In Mould Pressure Sensor IMPS) Resin inlet Pressure feed- back

45 Example of using Ciject equipment to directly feed resin infusion process. (Dinghy project in collaboration with Falmouth Marine School)

46 Characterising the full-scale process using In-Mould Pressure Sensors (IMPS )

47 Large scale infusion using Ciject technology at Princess Yachts

49 SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) Remote monitoring Network enabled Real time and historical QA information/trending

50 Overview of Ciject machine range: For details of the full range of Composite Integration Ltd range of products and services please visit our website or call +44 (0)

51 The lowest cost machine in the Ciject range with a simple electronic operator control system. The machine includes the accurate electronic pressure control. All the machines in the Ciject range include high quality purpose-designed pumps and the unique Ciject automatic mix-head. The Zero Plus option allows additional control functions. CIJECT Zero The Ciject range of Injection equipment:

52 CIJECT One A sophisticated machine with programmable functions and a extensive level of control options. The Ciject One features an unrivalled level of control with simplicity of operation. Designed for both RTM and infusion processes, the control system works accurately at negative pressures enabling the machine to also be used for directly delivering resin into vacuum infusion processes. Available with a range of additional options including: Flow monitoring, Material level sensors In-mould vacuum level checking. The Ciject range of Injection equipment:

53 CIJECT Two The most sophisticated machine in the range, the Ciject Two is based around a powerful touch-screen PLC enabling the addition of a wide range of options and control functions. Like the Ciject One, this machine is also suitable for directly delivering resin into vacuum infusion processes. The Ciject two supports a wide range of additional options including; Material level sensors Sophisticated Flow monitoring options PLC controlled Motorised ratio adjustment Radio frequency (RFID) mould recognition system In-mould vacuum level checking SCADA data monitoring The Ciject range of Injection equipment:

54 CIJECT Four A high output machine specifically designed for Direct Injection into infusion process The Ciject Four is based around a double pump system that can provide fluid output above 20kg/min plus a level of process security during the infusion (each pump/mix head can be shut- down and flushed if necessary during the infusion) Multiple In-Mould Pressure Sensors (IMPS) can be connected to the machine to provide automatic control of the delivery rate and infusion pressure. The specification can be adapted and the control system can be configured to suit the particular parameters of the customers process. The Ciject Four supports a wide range of functions including; Material level sensing Sophisticated Flow monitoring options PLC controlled Motorised ratio adjustment Process vacuum level checking On-screen management of pre-infusion checks SCADA data monitoring The Ciject range of Injection equipment:

55 Ciject non-mixing lab-scale equipment Developed to answer the demand for simple yet flexible injection equipment for use in small-scale production, laboratories and research establishments. This non-mixing equipment is based around the pressure-pot principal and so has the flexibility to dispense most liquid resin systems. The system can include: Heated resin container Heated outlet pipe-work Evacuation of resin container to enable degassing of mixed resin Digital weight monitoring of resin container Accurate pressure control The Ciject range of Injection equipment:
