High Volume Manufacturing

High Pressure Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM), compression moulding and injection overmoulding are just some of the highlights that demonstrate the range of capabilities of high volume manufacturing at the National Composites Centre (NCC).

With the capability to process thermoplastics up to 400°C in a range of processes and sizes of press, the NCC can undertake projects that demonstrate not only part performance and quality, but also production rate.  Our experts will take your company through the entire life cycle to ensure that the process is fit for your purpose and facilitate the development of new IP.
