This new partnership combines the industry-leading processes of RocTool with IACMI’s strong emphasis on manufacturing growth and industry research and development risk mitigation and knowledge sharing. Both organizations share a vision for innovation in the world of composites and are enthusiastic about this potential partnership. The strategic partnership directly aims for lightweighting research and collaboration with automotive OEMs on existing parts and next generation applications. The Michigan facility will be equipped with RocTool’s latest induction technologies for compression and injection molding. Support for facility infrastructure improvements to accommodate RocTool’s equipment has been provided by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) and Michigan State University (MSU).

Earlier this year, RocTool conducted a study to identify a range of resin materials that successfully use RocTool’s molding technologies to produce high-quality parts with high flow and reduced cavity pressure. The study is part of the company’s ongoing effort to further develop its HD Plastics material database which helps designers and converters to achieve exceptional part quality and increased performance. RocTool CEO Mathieu Boulanger looks forward to engaging with IACMI: "This strategic partnership with IACMI and working with its over one hundred and fifty members, will accelerate our developments and help us innovate with key automotive OEM and tier manufacturers in the industry.”
