We thrive on challenging projects and using cross-over knowledge to meet
specifications and exceed expectations.
AEL’s design team has successfully delivered innovative composite design solutions across a wide range of industrial applications, from weight saving projects to high fatigue load structures. Our work in renewable energy projects has resulted in an expert capability in fracture mechanics and fatigue analysis – vital to the long life, low-maintenance performance required for projects in this sector.
Our experience modeling the cost impact of composite design decisions such as materials, tooling, production process gives us a powerful insight into the design for manufacture process. In house production capability for tooling and parts also provides the feedback necessary to optimize component design.
AEL design and manufacture the most cost-efficient tooling for your project. Using specialized CAM software and CNC machinery, or traditional pattern making skills, we can quickly produce prototype or series production tooling.
AEL Airborne excel at quickly producing cost effective prototype parts for your project. Whether an initial design concept model or a component for pre-series production qualification, AEL’s highly skilled production staff will deliver.
As part of the Airborne Group – with its global reputation as a true innovator of automation processes for composites – AEL Airborne can provide everything from automation roadmaps for larger volume composite manufacturing through to automated production lines.
AEL Airborne develop and characterize materials properties for the application and environment that the product will be used in. We specialize in solutions for subsea applications as well as other hostile environments.
AEL provides testing in all areas; from coupon testing for design data creation to element and full-scale component testing. We can also design a test program appropriate to your project. AEL can guide clients through certification processes with authorities such as the CAA / EASA for aviation projects and DNV-GL for renewable energy projects.
Whether your project is at an early design stage or ready for production, please contact us to discuss your manufacturing requirements in more detail.
