Yeah, I was figuring that you were referring to a composite lay-up table. Do you really slide your whole work bench and tools into an oven? Or is it mostly just room temp cures?

Vacuum or contact lay ups?

That's cool, looks like you did a VARTM set up on that?

I generally work on composites on the aero side.
So far I've gotten to do F-22 and F-35 leading edges and control surfaces.

But also did the engine nacelles on the V-22 Osprey, and the body structure on the X-55, as well as a lot of parts that go to other stuff I'll never know exists.

That looks like straight up infusion to me.

I did the aero side from 1978-2008

Could be. Could be that I am using the wrong terminology.

This first paragraph roughly sums up my understanding of VARTM.

I do have a limited experience with VARTM and infusions in general. Limited in the fact that while I worked at Lockheed in the prototype center there were VARTMS and infusions going on very often.

Sounds like a fun gig!

Theres not much difference. My knowledge comes from boatbuilders, but I've known the bagged vacuum-feed process to be infusion.

Nice work. The contrast between pleasure boats and working boats always cracks me up. The repairs that you see on fishing boats and those kinds of rigs really reinforces the notion that fishermen are the farmers of the sea.
