DTC (Dutch Thermoplastic Components) is a custom moulder of continuous fibre reinforced thermoplastic polymer (CFRTP) components. Manufactured products are used in many structural applications where low weight and high strength are crucial. Using a short cycle thermoforming process, DTC moulds fabric and tape reinforced thermoplastics into 3D components at a high production rate.
90% of DTC’s customers are found in the aerospace industry, where thermoplastic composite components are typically used as small load carrying elements in primary aerostructures. DTC is accredited to AS9100 quality standards within the aviation industry. DTC also has several accreditations for specific customer-oriented processes, including non-destructive testing.
“TPRC supports us in our research work up to TRL level 3. Using a select number of highly educated and motivated group of people, TPRC is able to generate answers for important topics including overmolding. Cooperating inprojects with other partners promotes the mutual business contact which creates good relationships that will eventually lead to fruitful collaborations.” Marko Vreeling – DTC
