composites engineering


Through our verification capabilities and expertise, we assess quality and performance across all stages of product and process development. Our breadth of technologies and specialist engineers develop inspection processes that are fit for purpose and work alongside our network of equipment providers to advance technologies.

From level 3 non-destructive testing (NDT) practitioners with access to the latest NDT technologies, to polymer thermal behaviour characterisation, and mechanical and environmental performance testing, we can support your verification needs. 

How we can help you

  • Read more about Inspection development and quality assurance

    Inspection development and quality assurance

    A team consisting of level 2 and 3 NDT practitioners and metrologists, with access to a large range of technologies can develop fit for purpose inspection processes, help de-risk technology investment, and develop novel technologies.
