Composite Manufacturing Processes

As well as providing our clients with full automation systems, we also design and build jigs and fixtures. Composite materials are becoming increasingly popular for numerous industries. By using these raw materials in tooling, we are able to create components that are lightweight. This is ideal for the construction industry and aerospace sectors.

Composite tooling is one of many services that we provide here at Expert Tooling & Automation Ltd. Rather than opt for traditional metallic structures, composites offer a lightweight and flexible feel that will ultimately enhance the usage of your tools. Our dedicated team can design and build tooling that meets your specific requirements.

When it comes to composite manufacturing, you can trust that our professionals have the skill and knowledge to design a high-quality component. We boast plenty of experience in this area, and over the years have built advanced technologies for lightweight construction. To ensure our standing in the UK as a trusted company, we work closely with leading academic and industry partners across the country and Europe as a whole.

By using various composite materials, including carbon and glass fibre reinforced polymers, we can not only lighten the structural load, we can also reduce energy consumption. Our team provide bespoke services, tailoring every project to your needs and requirements. Below, we have outlined the work we provide.
