Tool Design Facility
Objective of the facility :
To fabricate composite tools using wet layup technique / prepreg technique required for both development and production programs.
Specification of the facility :
Tooling Bay Size
Working space : 43 Mtr (Length) x 18 Mtr (Width) x 10 Mtr (Height)
Certified Granite surface tables – 9 no’s (sizes varying from 2 Mtr X 3 Mtr, 2.5 Mtr X 4.5 Mtr)
