CMT’s patented process enables the manufacture of continuous fibre aluminium matrix composites (AMCs), that are, in basic terms, as stiff and strong as steel but as light as aluminium. The exceptional properties have created interest in a wide range of sectors, from consumer and sports products to automotive and aerospace. Components can either be manufactured entirely from AMC or placed inside a larger component for selective reinforcement via a specially developed overcasting process. The process creates a metallurgical bond between the insert and overcast aluminium, dramatically decreasing cost and design complexity.
CMT manufacture aluminium matrix composites that comprise of an aluminium matrix reinforced with a ceramic fibre to create a material with exceptional properties.
