As JEC World 2024 takes place, OLLOW integrates Roctool’s new R-IDS™ technology

By investing in R-IDS™ technology, OLLOW strengthens its production capabilities for molding thermoplastic composites. The first installations of R-IDS™ technology will be operational in the coming months, with the ambition of integration on its future 3000 m2 production unit expected in 2025.

R-IDS™ technology, presented at this year’s JEC by Roctool with live demonstrations, offers innovative, high-performance heated platen solutions dedicated to heating tooling. These induction-heated, water-cooled platens achieve high temperatures, short processing cycles, while guaranteeing optimized energy consumption.

This strategic partnership underlines OLLOW’s commitment to adopting the latest high-performance technologies to develop its high-volume production capacities and offer the market a competitive coupling between material and process.

OLLOW’s patented technology involves the automated production of hollow textile preforms and their transformation into composite parts by thermo-consolidation. The first phase is based on raw material trajectory optimization algorithms and continuous production machines, both developed by the start-up.

The second phase combines OLLOW’s own transformation process and high-speed R-IDS™ technology.

Thanks to this innovative technology, OLLOW gains in operational efficiency and productivity, reinforcing its commitment to Social and Environmental Responsibility towards its customers and partners.
