MCI’s J4500 maximizes the lightweight and low cost benefits of RMC’s Portal DCPD molding technology

RMC’s full spread of composite technologies is critical to maintaining OEM profitability in the face of economic uncertainty and offshore, body-on-chassis competitors.

The coach OEM that is prepared to offer an advanced service vehicle that delivers significantly reduced operating and maintenance costs will have a competitive advantage.

Key factors influencing operator purchasing decisions will continue to be: price, durability, serviceability, style, and life-time operating costs.

RMC’s configurable composite technologies are structured to provide the discerning OEM with the tools necessary to meet these acceptance criteria.

VARTM – this second-generation, sandwich-panel processing technology has been upgraded to reduce cost and improve performance. Characterized by low cost tooling, lightweight, and structural potential, it’s more than just a replacement for plywood. Think one-piece, “drop’n’go” no-rot floors with integrated ramp and seat plinths, step wells, or a structural roof (with or without skylights).

RIM DCPD – formerly out of reach of most coach OEMs, continuous process improvement and innovation at RMC has yielded another break through: low cost RIM tooling! Ideal for prototype and short-run moulding of instrument panels, side consoles, access panels, fenders, skirts, radiator and condenser grilles, headlight and taillight bezels utilizing this low cost, impact resistant, class “A” polymer.

RIM Polyurethane – RMC has the capability of moulding competitively priced, impact absorbing bumpers and fenders in solid elastomer, structural, or flexible foam. Finishes range from in-mold primer to class “A” top coat, ready for installation.
