Short description of advertisement: 
A Ukrainian company is seeking European partners to work together for improvement method of molds for composite materials.

A Ukrainian company is actively working on new designs in the field of machine-building.
Currently their main focus is on the light resin transfer method (LRTM) and its implementation into own production. They are looking for potential European partners with experience in using theoretical calculations and modeling programs to conduct joint technical development via a technical cooperation agreement.

The Ukrainian company work in the machine-building field using in their production the light resin transfer method (RTM) technology.
The principle of LRTM technology is based on the injection of a binder (epoxy resins) into a closed mold. The essence of the method is that dry, preliminary cut material (carbon fibres) is placed between two matrices. The resin is injected under pressure. The fibres are placed dry. Sometimes they are preformed to follow the shape of the tool and held together by means of binder. Such “preforms” are easy to place into the tool. After that, the second part of the tool is closed, and the resin is fed into the cavity. Vacuum can also be applied to assist resin in being drawn into the fabrics. Both injection and curing can take place at ambient or elevated temperature.
For technical and theoretical modulation of the above mentioned process is usually used Resin Transfer Molding (RTM) software. The company wants to use the RTM software solution in its production to minimize the risk of defective parts being released, to help the production process and the manufacture of the main tool.
The Ukrainian company is looking for European partners experienced in using RTM technology. Potential cooperation could be worked out under a technical cooperation agreement.
