In November 2020, Composites UK announced the winners of its 2020 Industry Awards. iCOMAT, the project coordinator of MASCoTS, won the 2020 Industry Award for Start-Up Business of the Year. The partners of MASCoTS, MSC Software, Daptablade and TWI would like to take this opportunity to congratulate iCOMAT.
Manufacturing and Advanced Simulation of Composite Tow Shearing (MASCoTS)
The MASCoTS project launched in September 2020. The ATI project focuses on the development of hardware as well as design and analysis tools for the commercialisation of the innovative technology of rapid composite tow shearing, as developed by iCOMAT. This patented manufacturing method utilises fibre steering for placement of carbon tapes along curved paths in order to create composite parts with minimal defects, thus ensuring their increased structural performance. The manufacturing and analysis developments will be validated by the manufacturing and testing of structural panels and a wingbox demonstrator.
The MASCoTS consortium is composed of iCOMAT, MSC Software, Daptablade and TWI.
MASCoTS is an Innovate UK funded project under reference number 113298.
