Expert services from TenCate

Need to get your program off the ground? TenCate offers a wide range of technical expert services to help you do just that. With over 45 years experience in the composites industry, we have developed an extensive network of suppliers, research centers, and in-house material and process design experts.

Engineering assessment

Evaluating the best composite solution for an engineering project?  TenCate Material/Expert Services can help. Together we work to gain a clear understanding of your strategic needs and the drivers influencing your design. We consider the entire supply chain to conceptualize your design options, and take advantage of design for manufacture principles.

Conceptual development

Building on your ideas, we can offer access to research facilities to test ideas and understand material differences. In addition to physical material testing, TenCate can incorporate a variety of modeling software approaches such as drape-forming analysis via Aniform software to understand movement of material during processing or cure kinetic modeling using RAVEN software from Convergent. All of these solutions help optimize your part fabrication while cutting time to market. Our Conceptual Development services helps build confidence in your design solutions.

Supply chain optimization

Not all parts can be optimized with the same layup, so how do you get the best from your material solution? Pulling on a broad supply-chain to optimize the performance of your material solution, we will work together to deliver the tailored solution that helps you match the component performance needed for success.  

Customer qualification

Working to minimize the implementation costs and time associated with material qualification and design optimization, we work to assess the best solution for your material certification  procedures. With a number of established airframe (OEM) qualifications already in place, we have the material solution and testing methodology to fit your needs.

Lifecycle management

Realizing the changing demands on product design, we can offer analysis of your composite life-cycle management costs.  Understanding the potential for recycling and performing a cost-benefit analysis can be a valuable activity in realizing your ultimate composite material choice. With years of experience, our insights and experience can support your selection process.
