epm: technology has won its first series production contract to manufacture high-quality, cosmetic components for a leading automotive client.
Graham Mulholland, epm: technology group’s CEO, commented, “After a year of all years as we moved and settled into our new 60,000 sq. ft. technology centre, this order is great news for team epm and a fitting way to sign off the year as we all get ready for Christmas.”
Mulholland continues, “We’ve now secured substantial new orders in aerospace, motorsport, defence and new automotive market sectors which will see the epm group grow considerably throughout 2016. “This particular order is for a complex assembly of components which are very high-profile and we’re thrilled to now be working closely with our clients as this first vehicle programme goes into production in Q1 2016.
“We now have clear vision of other components which will also go into production at various times throughout 2016. Therefore, we’re clearly now on target for our automotive division to grow throughout next year as we continue to invest in our capabilities to be customer-focused and customer-ready,” Mulholland concluded.
Cobra International will showcase a range of composite products at CAMX 2018, including carbon fibre components for the automotive, transportation, marine, water sports and luxury sectors.
UK company Prodrive Composites has developed a process for manufacturing recyclable composite components that can satisfy future end-of-life requirements without any compromise in the performance of the original parts. The company says the P2T (Primary to Tertiary) process not only simplifies recycling, but endows a composite material with the potential to fulfil three or more useful lifetimes.
Designers at Elemental Motor have utilised tailored fibre placement (TPF) to extend the use of carbon composites in its RP1 sports car.
