ACT has developed relationships with many enterprises, and we are pleased to be able to use their products and services to enhance our clients' development programs. A few of our partners
are highlighted below.
Vantage Technologies USA employs a patented Differential Pressure Molding (DPM) process to produce large composite parts at low cost and with low energy requirements. DPM speeds the process of moving from concept to production for compression-molding-type processes, and helps reduce capital equipment and manufacturing costs. Vantage Technologies is also a resource for innovative prototype and production of thermoplastic and thermoset compression-molded components, as well as tooling and design solutions focused on effective and environmentally sound production methods.
Great Lakes Composite Institute has established a technical leadership position as a supplier of composite materials and products focusing on next generation thermoplastic fiber reinforced materials. These materials use a patented method developed by GLCI called Direct Reinforcement Fabrication Technology (DRIFT). The continuous fiber / resin process fully saturates the fiber surface area and produces a flaw free higher strength and stiffness composite matrix which can be supplied in tape or sheet form.
