The development of a "mini-digester" plant was inspired by the need for more efficient use of the classical autoclaving process. The principle of controllable resistance heating is used, which, in combination with a pressurized elastomer membrane, can simultaneously press, temper and evacuate a DIN A4 sample. With this system, various types of planar fiber composites can be produced. Laminated glass panes with heating wires can also be processed.
As part of further research, the development of a plant for the production of 3-dimensional molds with flexibly adjustable heating fields is planned.
