About Us

Artboard 1.png

iCOMAT is a spin-out company from the University of Bristol, that has developed a patented manufacturing process for 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. Their innovative technology, Rapid Tow Shearing (RTS), is the world’s first automated composites manufacturing process that can place carbon fibre tapes along curved paths without generating defects. Its defect-free fibre steering capability realises ultra lightweight composite structures beyond the limit of the conventional straight fibre designs and complex geometry which is not manufacturable using current automated manufacturing technologies.
