The miniature prototype equipment will be an invaluable service to current and potential customers since it reduces the time and cost of creating functional coated fabric samples that are highly-correlated to large-scale production equipment.
After defining the customer’s needs, developing a cutting-edge concept, and receiving the customer’s approval, Trelleborg’s research and development team is now designing a unique and customised lab sample in the RPC for stringent testing before moving to serial production.
“The new RPC capability enables us to bring new products to market faster. After defining the performance requirements with our customers, we can now work through the iterative development and qualification process in a fraction of the time and cost that it would take using our production equipment. Our commitment to rapid innovation will help our customers win in the marketplace,” Steve Brockman, sales and business development director for Trelleborg’s engineered coated fabrics, said on the development.
Brockman said investment in RPC technology has enhanced its capability to meet ever-demanding market needs, such as for safety applications on commercial aircraft, tactical gear for defence personnel, life-saving medical equipment, safety clothing for firefighters, and a broad range of protective clothing applications.
The RPC will contribute significantly to the fourth stage in Trelleborg’s five-step new product development process to ensure customers select the right polymer material and engineered textile for their application and performance requirements. (SV)
