GRP Composite product design and manufacture

Design & structural engineering, prototyping and testing

PE Composites design and consultancy service can take your initial component concept right through prototyping and proving to full-scale series production. We have an experienced in-house design team that will work with you to refine your component specification, whether that is for a single bespoke design or for repeatable manufacturing.  PE Composites are experts not only in the application of polymer composite materials but also in the design and engineering of the composite to metal interface; an area of design often overlooked by the less experienced.

Having finalised the component specification PE Composites can lead you through the essential stages of development: detailed design; FEA; prototyping; design development; FEA; design certification; manufacture of tooling and jigs; first off production; proving trials; batch production; type certification.

Each stage of the product development process is supported by relevant testing or other proving tests/trials which may include Finite Element Analysis (FEA), composite chemical analysis or mechanical testing, proof load testing, pressure testing or environmental testing.  All carried out to international, defence, certifying body or other standards.

PE Composites facilities include our precision machining capability for the manufacture of parts, jigs or mould plugs.  We have extensive in-house testing and certification facilities integrated with our production capability and all are based at our Newport factory.

See our project list for details of some products we have produced.  Contact us to find out how we can help you produce a cost effective product incorporating the latest polymer composite GRP technology.
