Estimating tool for thermoplastics

US engineering group Re:Build Manufacturing has launched a new web-based cost estimating tool for continuous fiber reinforced thermoplastic composite parts.

According to the company, this is the first online quoting tool available for this class of materials.

“Our extensive capabilities and processing technologies, our strong partnerships with materials suppliers, and our transparent approach to pricing, help our customers understand much more easily and quickly if thermoplastic composites are right for their program,” said Steven Mead, president of Re:Build’s advanced materials group.  “By using our cost estimator, customers can see in real-time how the adoption of thermoplastic parts can fit their budget.”
