iCOMAT is a spin-out company from the University of Bristol that has developed a patented manufacturing process for making advanced carbon fibre composites which are lighter, stronger and more cost-effective than the state-of-the-art processes for the aerospace, automotive and marine sectors.

CTS (Continuous Tow Shearing) is a patented automated composite material deposition process, fundamentally different to existing AFP (Automated Fibre Placement) technologies, enabling defect-free fibre steering process. This offers benefits in:

  • Structural efficiency

  • Geometrical complexity

  • Production time and material cost

Straight Fibre Composite
(Same properties in main directions)
Curved Fibre Composite
(Reinforced only in critical areas - fibres aligned with the primary load path)

Paradigm Shift in Composite Design
