Video showing the laboratory apparatus to perform multi-die vacuum assisted pultrusion of thermoplastic composites. The video shows the creel, the preheater, the pultrusion dies (4) and vacuum chambers (3), the cooling die, the pulling system.
There is a temperature control unit. The pulling force and the pulling speed are measured. In this experiment, carbon/peek commingled yarns are pultruded.
