We combine innovative composite materials and textile structures with low-cost manufacturing technique. We develop these technologies in-house, or in collaboration with suppliers, universities, and research organisations. We have a good track record in gaining funding and project delivery, and a background in technology commercialisation.
What are your aspirations and plans for the future?:
We’re working with the Advanced Propulsion Centre, as part of their Technology Developer Accelerator Programme, to build a route to market for our low-cost composites in the niche and volume Automotive market. We’re also developing our technologies for consumer and sporting goods.
What types of projects are you interested in working on through Future Fashion Factory?:
Novel technical textiles for low cost / low MOQ composites, e.g. spreading, wet / dry surface treatment, impregnation, and twisting - for innovative natural fibre & thermoplastic composite sizing; embroidery / sewing - Tailored Fibre Preforms (sewing continuous reinforcing fibres onto a substrate material to form stress-adapted composite parts); filament / tape winding – to form tubes and / or flat textiles (‘blanks’); woven dry reinforcement textiles - for fibre / metal laminates.
