We have materials knowledge of a variety of engineering materials used in the widest range of environments, from space applications to MRI scanners used in hospitals.
We have particular expertise in using composite materials at cryogenic temperatures, for example in superconducting magnet applications in physics and medicine. This extends to the development of a number of novel in-house low viscosity epoxy formulations aimed at vacuum impregnation processing. This method is well suited to one-offs and short production runs for any application. We have applied this technique to very small coils for cryo-coolers, up to the largest superconducting coils.
We have prototype and small batch scale manufacturing capabilities, for example for coil manufacture, electrical potting and high integrity helium insulation breaks.
