We work with companies developing pioneering satellite technologies and who require the latest lightweight carbon fibre solutions.
Lightweighting for space is critical. Every kilogram saved reduces the launch cost by $10,000.
If you want lighter, more cost-efficient bespoke carbon fibre manufacture for satellites and spacecraft, we can help you with that.
We work with global brands across the aerospace and space industries using tooling design and manufacture that enables us to bring unparalleled lightweighting solutions to the sector, giving you increased efficiency.
We work as an extension of our customers’ teams, providing a complete composite and polymer manufacture service from tooling through to production. This includes providing design plus rapid prototyping and series manufacture. With our 18 injection moulding machines, climate-controlled clean rooms and 5 autoclaves, we can accommodate some of the largest aerospace composite components. Our quality management systems comply with ISO 9001 and AS9100RevD.
We supply first class CNC machined aluminium and composite parts. With 44 CNC milling machines comprising the latest 3 & 5 axis technologies, and with our largest 5-axis machine up to 8m x 6m x 2m operating 24/7, we provide fast and comprehensive machining solutions.
Our world-class solutions will help you take on the final frontier.
