Shape Machining Ltd is known for machining high quality 1-off patterns and moulds.

But recent expansion has freed up more capacity to take on production volume machining and trimming for the composites industry.

Managing Director, Peter McCool, said “We have recently won contracts to machine production quantities of Rohacell foams for automotive suppliers and other contracts to 5-axis trim production quantities of composite aircraft seats.

All these contracts demonstrate the level of confidence our customers have in Shape to deliver to their regular production schedules.”

Shape designs and machines all the associated fixtures required to optimise the machining process.

SHAPE Machining specialises in machining metallic tools, epoxy tooling block patterns, Rohacell foams and the trimming of carbon fibre parts for the automotive, motorsport and aerospace industry.

SHAPE Engineering offers a full range of design, analysis and project management services to support composite part and tool manufacturing projects.

SHAPE Composites supplies thermoset and thermoplastic composite preforms and parts ranging from bespoke autoclave cured carbon parts to larger volumes of hot pressed formed carbon parts.
