Alvant, a leader in Aluminium Matrix Composites (AMCs), has unveiled how the materials technology can challenge traditional materials in the design and manufacture of lightweight strong parts.

Selected by Safran Landing Systems to participate in the £28M ‘Large Landing Gear of the Future’ initiative to reduce emissions and fuel consumption in the aerospace industry, lowering the whole-life ownership cost of commercial airliners.

AMCs are advanced composite materials in which the aluminium is reinforced with a secondary high-performance material, typically a long fibre, short fibre, or particles, and are manufactured using an Advanced Liquid Pressure Forming (ALPF) process.
