Innovative Automated Composites Manufacture
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:
Production time and material cost
