Advanced Materials & Manufacturing

Harnessing advanced materials and manufacturing processes is critical to maximising success in all sectors.

Advanced materials technology

Whether reducing cost to deliver customer requirements, maximising performance to deliver operational superiority, or focusing on delivering multiple functionalities from one system, advanced materials and manufacturing technology is a critical enabler.

We provide research services, advanced test & measurement services, expert advice and product development to help customers exploit advanced materials. Deploying deep subject matter expertise and associated state-of-the-art facilities, we deliver required outcomes.

Using technical expertise we develop innovative and cost-effective materials solutions to our customers’ most challenging problems, ranging from new applications of already known materials through to the design of an entirely new process or product – whatever is most appropriate to a customer’s budget and needs.

For example, we developed a stealth materials technology that can be deployed cost effectively into traditional wind turbine design and manufacturing processes, eliminating the planning constraint caused by the interference of wind turbines with air traffic and weather radar. The technology has been deployed successfully in a number of wind turbine farm installations internationally.
