Fabrication

One of the most important steps in the product development process is creating a functional prototype or doing a low-volume production run.

This offers the opportunity to verify the design will work properly and perform to the standards you need without the expensive cost of developing production-ready tooling.

Our Fabrication Team provides services for all composite-related parts, plugs and tools. We specialize in custom shaping by machine or hand and are experienced with many materials and processes. We can fabricate prototypes as small as hand-held articles and as large as car hoods and bus parts.

We work with a multitude of materials including composites, metals, plastics and hybrid parts using multiple materials, depending on your specifications.

We offer:

Prototyping

Plugs and Patterns:

  • CAD modelling for tool optimization
  • Material sourcing and procurement
  • CAM programming and machining
  • Surface shaping and finishing

Tools:

  • Fabrication of industry standard FRP tools for open and closed moulding
  • Fabrication of direct-to-mould tooling for prototypes and one-offs
  • Selection of materials for process/construction method

Parts:

  • Material and/or product demonstrators
  • Test panels to obtain material properties
  • First articles/prototypes using traditional and novel fabrication methods
  • Hybrid parts using metals and plastics in combination with composites
