Operating across the spectrum of Technology Readiness Levels, from applied research to routine production testing, the NCCEF facilitates a two way flow of knowledge between industry and academia, streamlining the process by which companies innovate with and deliver new composite products.

NCCEF provides: transition from metals to composites, data for qualifying parts/processes/repair strategies, analytical data to develop new products, consultancy, technology transfer, research and development.
Leading capabilities include: carbon fibre weaving and braiding for complex 3D structures, low cost out-of-autoclave processing, extensive non-destructive evaluation (NDE) and mechanical testing suites. As well as providing data, expertise and advice, NCCEF’s applied research reduces the testing time to bring new products to market.
