Pultrusion in 3-D

The “Radius-Pultrusion” process is among five industrial processes up for the €100,000 Hermes Award, to be awarded next week during the Hannover Exhibition 2009 in Hannover, Germany, one of the world’s largest trade fairs devoted to manufacturing technology.

The process, developed and patented by German company Thomas GmbH + Co. (Bremervörde, Germany), takes pultrusion well beyond conventional applications into 2D and 3D parts processing (see photo).

According to the company, whose main business remains manufacture of hospital bedding but which also supplies various industries with pultrusions, curved profiles in almost any radii or profile design can be manufactured in a continuous process.

Applications are anticipated in automotive, B&C, and other markets. [email protected]
