NOW THIS IS A CUSTOMER TALKING
Steve Tillett Racing Seats bought their first reusable vacuum membrane in September 2014 and have firmly developed the system to great advantage.
Steve Elliot confirmed that they consistently achieve over 25 % resin savings and said that 6 identical CNC trimmed seat mouldings of 700 g where within 10 g weight of one another. Their main closed mould process used to be RTM /LRTM but now they are moving much of their production to infusion due to consistency and flexibility which the system brings. “No longer are we restricted to fixed cavities” Steve explained -” we now can apply the same reusable membrane for variable layups which brings obvious advantage on tooling investment, without compromise on quality”.
Here is a short video on you tube of the new kart seats coming first and second in the FIA karting World Championship at Le Mans this year.
