Composite product development
Bridging the gap between concept and production ready manufacture.
Consultation and DFM
From design concept to approval, we offer guidance and support to optimise product design for a chosen manufacturing process. This experience is crucial for determining if a product is cost effective in production.
Using industry standard Computer Aided Design (CAD), Structural Finite-Element Analysis (FEA) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software, we translate creative and conceptual ideas into reality with production in mind.
The early stages of a project can be subject to multiple changes, so for prototype components we can offer cost effective solutions using representative manufacturing methods. This is a regular exercise for us in our racing division (see Maverik Moth).
Tooling design and manufacture
Based on component requirements, we design and manufacture tooling for a variety of production rates – From Steel Compression moulds capable of 10,000 parts per year, to one off Resin Infusion moulds, we have experience in most tooling.
We offer component production manufacture for Compression moulding, Prepreg and Resin Infusion. We are working to ISO9001 awaiting our first audit.
Research and Development
We operate a constant development program for our own high performance product with the ‘Maverik’ Moth racing dinghy, we so are well versed in the research and development cycle. From aero and hydrodynamic optimisation to structural analysis and process development, we apply these technologies to a variety of projects.
As an environmentally conscious company, we pride ourselves on our understanding of the latest eco-materials and processes. Our experience in production includes pioneering uses for recycled carbon, natural fibres.
The core of our business is constant innovation through research and development which benfits our clients.
