  • 3. Advanced Research & Development What value does heatpipe technology bring to mandrel design? Acrolab Copyright 2009 – Mandrel Modification
  • 4. Isobar® Heat Pipe Advanced Research & Development • Large amounts of energy can be rapidly transferred. • Heatpipes are intrinsically Isothermal. • Redistribution of localized energy inputs. • Intuitive response to energy deficits and surpluses. • Requires no direct power or physical connections. • Sealed System.

  • 14. Isomandrel in induction heated curing applications Advanced Research & Development • The induction heating coil are situated proximate to the mandrel permitting unimpeded mandrel rotation. • Induction heating is relatively instantaneous and intense. • Significant thermal energy per unit time can be provided. • The Induction coil heats a small portion of the O.D. of the mandrel and not the composite winding.
