Prototyping and product development

We have the facilities to:
  • design and model profiles, prepregs and simple composite structures
  • set up and manufacture prototype thermoplastic composite profiles and prepreg, and structures
  • optimise process parameters, using empirical results from prototypes
  • conduct basic mechanical testing etc.

Projects have included:
  • Specialist sandwich panels using our prepreg for the skins
  • inserting cables and fibre-optics in profiles
  • incorporating tear-resistant fibre scrims on composite sheets
  • machining and modifying profiles with notches, screw-threads, holes etc.
