Complex Parts Molded from Chopped Fiber
TenCate's CCS Composites group mold ideas into reality. Customers use TenCate compression moulded parts to replace metal or composite parts, achieving both cost and weight savings. Through the use of compression moulding, we are able to design and manufacture complex composite parts.
TenCate’s CCS Composites group offers turnkey manufacturing, allowing us to optimize the part, design the tooling and fabricate these parts in cost-effective, high volumes. We can truly customize each part, creating them with integral stiffeners and fasteners, as well as with lightning strike foils on the surface, for example. Your only limit is your imagination.

Read our technical paper on chopped fiber billet and learn about a new material form for prototypes and limited production runs, Compression Molded Billet: Advantages and Usages. This paper explains the benefits of composites, which also allow rapid "machining-to-shape" for your final parts.
We also offer a one-page overview of an example of a complex antenna housing made via machined billet stock.
