Modified Closed Mold
Tooling Surface Inside and Out with Tight Tolerance on Both ▪ Shaped or Round, Straight and Tapered Composite Tubes
This method is used if you require tight ID tolerances as well as tight OD tolerances and your tube is straight—no bends or contours— but may be tapered. This process can be used for shaped as well as round tubing, such as square, rectangular, oval, etc. This method is also referenced to as having tooling surfaces on the ID and the OD of the part. The concept is straight forward and pricing can be more competitive than bladder-molded parts.
