The new business unit Mastermoldes will handle all stages of development - from the design of the tool and selection of materials to the production of the mould itself, including tests and customer training. The company says that it has assembled a team of engineers and technicians with extensive experience in the manufacture of models and moulds, as well as in composites moulding.

“We do not make just the mould or model. In fact, we develop the production process of the part and define the parameters of the process. And, if necessary, the customers can train their employees here or with our staff at their premises. I believe we are one of the few companies in Brazil that offer all these alternatives,” said Rosi Ana Peterhans, director of Mastergel.

According to Rosi, the large number of inquiries from companies wishing to manufacture parts in RTM motivated the creation of Mastermoldes.

“People wanted to enter this segment, but they could not find the appropriate tool in the market. In addition, the manufacture of the RTM mould is more complex than the manual systems, hence the difficulty of processors in making the tooling on their own.”

Mastermoldes says that it current customers are primarily in the construction and transportation sectors.
