We offer predictability in a demanding advanced engineering market. We are ISO9001 and AS9100 Rev C certified and offer extensive machining capabilities (with five 5-axis machines), combined with autoclave and composite pressing facilities; we also have an on-site paint facility for any desired surface finish requirements.


  • World-Class Tooling Design

    We have a wealth of expertise regarding tooling design, specifically relating to composite structures. Our Design Manager has over thirty years composite design experience and is supported by a dedicated team of two further on-site designers.

Product news

  • Pentaxia takes delivery of composite press No3

    We're pleased to announce we've taken delivery of our third composite press. A high specification Langzauner Perfect (bed size 600mm x 800mm) - to ensure we can continue to offer continual capacity for our composite clients. As much as possible at Pentaxia we factor machinery duplication into our investment strategy. By duplicating equipment, should there be a reason for down-time, the risk of affecting delivery lead-times is minimized. We feel we've potentially one of the largest composite press capabilities in the UK and welcome new enquiries - there's lots of capacity! Please liaise with Tim Ollier ( for more assistance or visit us on stand K110.

  • Pentaxia boosts Composite Press Capabilities with the addition of another Langzauner Laboratory Press.

    In the coming weeks, Pentaxia will take delivery of a second, high specification Langzauner Perfect composite press (bed size: 800mm x 600mm). This has been a major investment for Pentaxia and ensures machinery duplication for our original Langzauner purchased in June 2015. With this second laboratory press, we're doubling our composite pressing capacity and will be actively sourcing new clients. In total, we will have three presses on site, two Langzauner's and a smaller plate press - a significant composite manufacturing capability, based in our modern Derby facility. Whether for structural or more recently visual carbon components, please get in contact if you are planning a future composite project.
