From the Composites Engineering Open Forum, Mouldbox will be presenting ‘Innovating composite tooling through the use of applied AI’ during Advanced Engineering 2018. Formed less than 12 months ago, its mission is to make bringing composite solutions to life ten times easier.

Mouldbox is a supplier of tooling hardware to a range of composite manufacturers, and uses digital technologies and machine learning to automate the design and procurement process for composite tooling. It removes bottlenecks, lowers barriers and creates new opportunities for innovation and growth.

Earlier this year, the company’s first-of-its-kind solutions were recognised by Innovate UK with endowment of a significant grant to fund and accelerate their technology development. The project is now well underway.

Mouldbox says its momentum continues to build with the news that it has been shortlisted for the Innovation of the Year award in manufacturing by Composites UK.

“This is a testament to all the hard work by everybody back at Mouldbox headquarters,” says company CEO, Martin Oughton. “It’s been a rollercoaster year taking this concept from idea to reality. Manufacturers often talk about industry 4.0 but the truth is that most are somewhere between 2.0 and 3.0. Like other industries before it, manufacturing needs its tech moment. We are happy to be at the forefront of this revolutionary period and also to be recognised by our peers.”

Since its launch at JEC World in March 2018, the company has had over 2,000 parts uploaded onto its online platform in less than six months.
