What is Composite Metal Technology?

Composite Metal Technology Ltd is an advanced materials technology company that has invented casting technology known as Advanced Liquid Pressure Forming (ALPF). This ground-breaking technology has been developed specifically for the manufacture of aluminium matrix composites (AMC) that offer significant weight and performance benefits over conventional unreinforced metals.

The potential benefits of AMCs have been recognised for many decades, but their wide-scale commercialisation has been held back by difficulties of producing them by an economically viable manufacturing route. CMT believes that it has succeeded in overcoming these difficulties with its patented ALPF casting technology.

Demand for AMCs has grown substantially in recent years because computer-aided design and manufacturing techniques have pushed the use of conventional materials to the limits of their engineering applications. Additionally, AMCs have a critical role to play in satisfying legislative requirements for cleaner energy by providing improved energy efficiency through weight reduction. The confirmed and emerging fuel economy and emission legislation is expected to drive the wide-scale industrialisation of these advanced composite materials.

CMT is able to offer its customers a wide range of services including design, development, prototyping, testing, manufacture and sale of AMC and hybrid-AMC components.

The CMT Group has its corporate headquarters on the Prisma Business Park in Basingstoke (Hampshire), which is located 2 miles from junction 6 of the M3 motorway.

CMT, which is made up of CMT Plc and its subsidiary CMT Ltd, is an advanced materials technology group.
