Advanced Composites by Rodman: Experience
Over 40 years working with composite materials
Since 1974, we are working on the development and construction of composite materials products. More than 40 years of experience and know-how accumulated Rodman placed in a position of leadership in the composites industry.
Rodman Lusitania, strategically located in the North of Portugal and a few km from the border with Spain has 600,000 m2, divided into two buildings and an office center. The nave, with dimensions of 180 mx 90 m is the largest in Portugal in the sector and one of the largest in the Iberian Peninsula.
Our engineers and process development, study and analyze carefully the correct relationship between the choice of materials used, the design of parts and different manufacturing processes implemented to ensure that the end result meets the demands and requirements our client.
We implement a variety of transformation processes of composites: Light RTM, Infusion and Hand Lay-up prepregs.
Choosing appropriate materials and processes, it is performed in accordance with required design criteria, failing an objective specification, quality, environmental, cycle time and costs established.
By careful selection and combination of reinforcements, matrixes and calculation techniques and more accurate processing, our engineers and designers create products to meet the most demanding needs and demands.
Given the characteristics of the project and defined its specification, it is designed, the model is produced, the mold occurs and the part is manufactured. We use CAD / CAM systems and more appropriate if necessary proceed to finite element analysis (FEA).
Offer a comprehensive project under a global prism and full flexibility to adapt to our customers need at all times.
