Intier Automotive Interiors manufactures interior door panels. These are produced by laying a pre-cut form of fabric, or colour stop material, within a dedicated mould and then filling the mould with hot polypropylene. The polypropylene is then allowed to cool down to around 25°C to cure. However, during this moulding and cooling process, the fabric can be moved within the mould and this causes unwanted creasing. A short-wave infrared oven from Heraeus Noblelight is being used by Intier Automotive Interiors to remove any fabric creases that are produced during the manufacture of car door panels at its Bristol factory.
