Abaris has added a second Mold Fabrication for Production & Repairs (M-6/R-8) class to the Fall 2017 schedule. The first class scheduled for October 23-27 has sold out, and due to popular demand, are now offering a second round of the popular course December 4-8, 2017.
During the “Mold Fab” class the students will learn about tool design techniques that contribute to both dimensional stability and tool longevity. After discussing basic concepts in the classroom, the students are encouraged to apply these lessons in the workshop to see for themselves how simple ideas can greatly improve tool quality.
Molds and fixtures are fabricated in class off of existing master models, patterns, or parts using the latest materials and techniques; much emphasis is placed on using TenCate AmberTool® low temp curing carbon prepreg materials for fabricating molds that can later be post-cured for use at elevated temperatures.
Room temperature curing wet resins and dry fabrics are also used in class for making intermediate transfer patterns and trim and drill type fixtures.
