Research & Development

Epsilon Composite teams develop innovative solutions to meet industry needs and deliver performance improvements

Project management from A to Z: from the initial idea to serial production, including qualification and prototyping.

Composite parts engineering is different from conventional metal parts engineering: working on an anisotropic material (different properties depending on the direction) and heterogeneous materials requires design and production rules to be followed in order to fully benefit from the advantages offered by these high-performance materials.
This very specific knowledge is complemented by a development process that needs to be implemented from the very first study, and continued until stabilised industrial production is achieved.
Relevant milestones allow each step to be validated in order that smooth progress is made and any technical risks are managed. Epsilon Composite uses the “TRL” scale (Technology Readiness Level), which is frequently used in the aerospace, defence and other industries. This method includes 9 milestones encompassing stages from concept through to operational validation.

These milestones allow our clients to clearly monitor the progress of their project and to manage their risks in order to guarantee their objectives are achieved:

  • Respect for deadlines.
  • Performance achievement.
  • Cost control.
