Investing in the cutting edge

In response to increased customer demand Morgan Advanced Materials has invested a six-figure sum into a new high-specification water jet cutting machine.

The state-of-the-art production equipment will optimise cutting quality and consistency while also improving throughput at Morgan's Composites & Defence Systems business in Coventry.

This facility predominantly produces armour systems to protect both individuals and vehicles. Accurate cutting is crucial to finished product quality and performance, the water jet cutter recreates CAD designs in a variety of materials from fibre glass and commercial composites to the high-protection materials used in the international defence sector.

Duncan Eldridge, President of Morgan Advanced Materials - Composites & Defence Systems, said: "Much of our cutting was previously undertaken manually but business growth and increased demand have driven the latest investment to speed up processing. The new equipment is guaranteeing cutting consistency and quality across a range of applications."
