Materials processing

NCCEF offers a broad range of processing equipment for the fabrication of composites via both lamination of prepreg materials and resin infusion of dry fibre preforms.

Pre-fabrication ply kits can be designed using computer-assisted design (CAD) based software and prepared using a fully automatic ply cutter. Autoclave, quickstep, hot press, vacuum press, oven and resin transfer moulding facilities are also available within NCCEF.
