This means that we can apply an extremely diverse range of processes on-site, from the initial product concept using CAD and CAE systems, to production of the final part ready for delivery to the customer’s facility or production line.

Our range of manufacturing capabilities include the following:

Armstrong Manufacturing has an impressive array of high quality mechanical and hydraulic presses on site, featuring various bed sizes, tonnage and stroke types.
Carbon Fibre properties, such as its light weight, high strength and design flexibility, have unlocked new possibilities in many industry sectors for the Armstrong Composites team. 
Armstrong have pressing, roll forming and metal bending cells on the shop floor operating in support of other processes.
The Armstrong TruLaser Cell, located in its own specialised area in our manufacturing facility, can be operated as a 3 or a 5-axis system.
The Autoclaves used by Armstrong in the process of composite component production, are Aeroform units with an inner diameter of 2m and a working length of 8m, operating at temperatures of 200 degrees Celsius and pressures of up to 10 bar.
Prepreg lamination offers several advantages when producing carbon fibre components at Armstrong, including precise fibre alignment, controlled resin-to-fibre ratio, consistent quality of the end product and the ability to produce complex and lightweight structures with high strength-to-weight ratios.
Armstrong can supply a wide variety of products with a highly polished finish using robotic and manual systems.
Armstrong has installed some of the industry’s most advanced  robotic hemming systems. Extremely complicated hemming processes are carried out manually by our expert craftsmen.
Armstrong have 3 roll formers on site, allowing us to produce sectioned profiles to later stretch bend or supply as finished.
The Welding team at Armstrong are skilled at both MIG (Metal Inert Gas) and TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding, applying their expertise when selecting the most appropriate process according to the project.
Armstrong have a range of state of the art CNC machines on site, which are operated by our team of expert engineers in support of production of high and low volume part and tool manufacture.
Geiss Thermoforming Machine

THERMOFORMING

Armstrong have a Geiss Thermoforming/Vacuum Forming machine on the shop floor, selected by our expert team due to it’s exceptional speed and efficiency.
Armstong has combined artisan skills and cutting edge technology in its assembly processes. Our assembly experts use CAD, CAE and manual skills to design and build jigs and devise assembly methods for a wide range of products.
Armstrong has two Laser Scan Faro Arm CMMs in the metrology department. They can also be transferred onto the shop floor and operated in a CNC machine cell or  press to measure components or tools in-situ.
Our 3D Printing robot is a state of the art piece of equipment capable of very quickly printing large components for use in prototype builds

Armstrong Group has invested in a state of the art Automated Digital Cutting Table which provides a seamless link between materials planning and our Carbon Fibre manufacturing.

Armstong has paint application facilities for spray painting to finishes of the highest standard on a wide range of materials including plastic, stainless steel, aluminium and composite materials.
