SHAPE Machining – ShapeTex

Making the most out of material

Project Highlights 

  • New production process which allows existing carbon composite materials to be used in new applications which previously haven’t been possible
  • Lightweight, strong structures with low mass can now be produced with characteristics which have been tuned to the users requirements
  • Process lays down fibres, including recycled content, accurately even for highly detailed designs
  • Ability to lay down fibres in different directions enables increase in strength without wasting vast amounts of material
  • TDAP is helping develop strategy and business plans, as well as providing financial support for R&D, supply chain development and market entry

Attention to detail

The ShapeTex process is able to create small precise structures, which can be used in a range of sectors. From intricate suspension parts, body panels, body armour and snowboards – this process can create strong structures that can take an impact.
