Carbon composite materials have little, if any, thermal expansion. This has a large impact on how especially large machines and fixtures can be designed. A tool from FlexProp is lightweight due to the manufacturing process and choice of materials which are virtually free from internal stresses thus providing high precision and dimensional stability throughout its lifetime. It is also well documented that the tolerance of lightweight tooling from FlexProp is very sharp and remains so. By combining innovative patented technology for design and manufacturing, Flexprop can offer robust production equipment up to 10 times lighter with the same stiffness compared to conventional technology.
Where lightweight manual equipment is used, the maintenance costs have been significantly reduced due to excellent robustness and decreased wear, well motivating the extra cost for a lightweight tool.
