iCOMAT is a University of Bristol spin-off, that has developed a patented process for making advanced carbon fibre composites which are lighter, stronger and more cost-effective than the state-of-the-art processes for the aerospace, automotive and marine sectors.

This process allows for the automated placement of carbon fibre tapes on curved paths (also known as fibre steering), without creating the defects associated with current methods. Fibre steering expands drastically the design space for composite material components and can improve all aspects of structural performance (eg buckling, vibration response). This, in turn, allows designers to optimise components and minimise material usage with weight and cost benefits and can revolutionise the use of carbon fibre and composites.
