Far-UK has started the development of 4 new processes under the Composite Innovation Cluster project.
The company expects to bring at least 2 processes to market during the project. These processes have been given the code names Process 1, Process 2, Process 3 and Process 4. The most advanced of these is Process 4 and the company exhibited a composite manufactured wheelchair using this process at JEC Paris.
As a winner of the North West Automotive Alliance Annual Innovation Award, Process 4 is designed to enable niche vehicle manufacturers to produce complex shapes with carbon fibre, with the aim of being a cost comparable solution with Aluminium, and offering significant weight reduction through the use of composites.
At the American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA)'s third annual Infrastructure Day on 6-7 February 2018 34 ACMA members joined together to meet with over 100 Members of Congress and their staffs to advance legislation to drive investment in innovative material solutions for transportation, water and energy infrastructure.
