High performance, low weight and inertia, compact package – not just for transport

Weight saving is not the prerogative of just the transport sector, nor are AMC materials restricted to such applications. The combination of exceptional mechanical properties, lightweight, low inertia and small package size are attracting the interest of companies in diverse industrial sectors. The technology can provide benefits in rail, defence, ICM, consumer, industrial, energy and marine products. There is considerable potential, for example, in using the material in wind turbine sub-systems, where weight saving in the turbine nacelle can provide secondary benefits in reducing tower, foundation, transportation and erection costs. The elevated temperature stability of the materials can be as important as weight, stiffness and strength in defence applications. Overall, the potential applications of aluminium matrix composite materials are as broad as the imagination of the design engineer.
