Technologies we use

Manual laminating

The simplest and the most popular method to make laminate composites. The technology involves forming as a result of placing the reinforcement layers to obtain the composite with required properties. 

Vacuum infusion

The technology in which a dry reinforcement is put into a mould with previously applied gel coat. Then, the mould is placed in an airtight vacuum bag. Vacuum sucks the resin and uniformly saturates the reinforcement. 

RTM technologies

Production of laminates in closed moulds. Reinforcement layers and spacer materials are placed in the gel coated mould. The mould is closed and the resin is pressed inside. The L-RTM method is vacuum-supported for better saturation of the reinforcement. 

Casting moulds

Suitably modified resins are poured into open or closed moulds. Depending on the design and customer requirements, the casting is gravitational, centrifugal or pressure-supported.

CNC milling in 5 floating axes

We have a 5-axis milling machine allowing for complicated shapes to be milled. We manufacture patterns and prototypes with the 0.1 mm accuracy on the 4100x2100x1000 working area. The machine runs under a veery precise CAM software. The shapes are milled based on the CAD and Mesh models. We mill in extruded polystyrene, XPS, MDF boards, wood, wood-based materials, PU foams and plastics, as well as in aluminium and brass.

Foaming resin systems

Foaming resins are used to make very lightweight and dimensionally stable structural laminates which additionally can be very flame retardant. With the possibility of applying various shapes and colours, the BÜFA®-Foaming Resin Systems can be used to manufacture parts used in passenger vehicles, water transport vessels, construction of wind power plants and many other industries. The use of lightweight parts in transport significantly reduces fuel consumption. The BÜFA®-Firestop S 900 foaming resin system makes it possible to manufacture very lightweight laminate structures meeting the most stringent flame retardancy requirements in transport (e.g. EN 45545 HL2).
