Amalga Composites Announces Addition of Resin Transfer Molding Technology
March 7, 2011
Amalga Composites, Inc. (ACI) of West Allis, Wisconsin is pleased to announce the addition of Resin Transfer Molding (RTM) to their manufacturing processes. RTM is the process of infusing resin, under pressure, into dry fibers preformed and preplaced in a closed cavity mold. The company is currently using it to develop both RTM and Light RTM capabilities on a selection of parts.
ACI is a leader in the design, engineering, and manufacturing of filament-wound products, compression molded products and machining of composite components since 1966. ACI's doctoral level engineering staff, with more than 60 years of combined experience, provides solutions for today's technical challenges. ACI is ISO9001:2008 Certified with a full service precision machine shop.
Our products are used in a broad base of applications: Autonomous underwater vehicles, launch systems, unmanned vehicles, defense, RO vessels, exploration instrumentation systems, pumps, rewind shafts, drive shafts, pneumatic cylinders, valve actuators and can replace metal in many applications.

COMPOSITE WIND TURBINE COUPLER TUBING
Amalga Composites designs, engineers and manufactures composite coupler tubing for wind turbines. Our composite tubing is light weight, high strength and corrosion resistant and is an up-grade from steel. Our composite tubing can be designed as an insulator to prevent electrical arcing between the generator and gear box of the wind turbine.
CARBON FIBER ROBOTIC ARM
ACI was tasked with manufacturing a High Modulus Carbon Fiber Robotic Arm for a Narcotics Car Inspection Unit for the Federal Bureau of Investigations.
The High Modulus Carbon Fiber Robotic Arm components included:
ACI adhesively bonded the aluminum flanges & reducer coupler, machined the outside diameter and laser aligned the hole placement between flanges. Total assembled length 281.50 inches.
Our engineering and manufacturing cabpabilities provided our customer with a high quality and functional prototype.
