With multiple patents and precious IP to its name, Carbon Revolution wheels are one of the most complex carbon fibre products in the world. As an advanced manufacturer, based in Geelong Australia, Carbon Revolution continues to innovate and is using digital technology, AI and automation to deliver to increasing OEM volume commitments, and also to further enhance the sustainable production of its technology.
Carbon Revolution evolved as a group of engineers, scientists and industrialists focused on bringing efficiency technology to the global automotive and aerospace market.
Since 2007, the team has expanded to add the skills and experience necessary to commercialise this technology and take it to the various global markets that are hungry for step-change efficiency technologies of this type.
Among the founders and subsequent hires are ex-OEM senior engineers from chassis development and drivetrain roles, senior manufacturing executives from OEMs and world-leading automotive component suppliers, R&D specialists from leading aerospace manufacturers, industrial composites manufacturing specialists and numerous PhDs with world-leading materials and structures knowledge.
ACHIEVING OEM STANDARDS
With this team in place, the rigor of aerospace processes has been effectively merged with the efficiency and process controls characteristic of high-volume automotive component manufacturing. Maintaining global OEM standards for component supply TS/IATF 16949 since 2013 is a key element of the overall world-class approach to quality and process control. Carbon Revolution is now in production with multiple OEM customers across the globe.
Carbon Revolution conducted much of the early laboratory testing in Europe using techniques and testing rigs that are preferred by OEMs, instead of the common industry tests. This approach has ensured that the most rigorous durability standards required by European OEMs have been met or exceeded.
