Why should I buy long fiber composite pellets instead of using direct in-line compounding (D-ILC or D-LFT)?

To be economically viable, direct in-line compounding demands large numbers of large parts to be molded on a single machine. Deploying a direct in-line compounding system also requires a significant investment in specialized equipment that must be kept continuously in operation along with the development of in-house compounding expertise. For many applications and molders purchasing long fiber composites as precompounded pellets is a better option because of its flexibility and reduced capital investment.
