New source of D-LFT technology.
In 1999, Hawley developed Woodshed's D-LFT process based on his patented "Pushtrusion" method. Fiber is combined with molten polymer and fed directly into the injection molding barrel while still hot. This in-line process eliminates the need for precompounded pellets, thereby reducing material costs and maintaining longer fiber lengths. The Woodshed technology is compact and retrofittable to conventional injection machines. PlastiComp: (507) 313-1746, www.plasticomp.comm
