Mouldbox has over 15 years experience in the composites industry.
We were frustrated by the process and the lack of innovation in “state of the art” processing. Composites has enjoyed huge growth due to the uptake in many diverse sectors but the prototyping and moulding process has not developed at the same rate.
High performance carbon fibre composite design and engineering specialist MODE was formed in 2012 by Martin Oughton, applying his extensive expertise and experience of the elite F1 and Grand Prix yacht industries to aerospace, automotive and marine sectors.
Martin has over 10 years’ experience in high performance carbon fibre composite R&D – from designing carbon pull rods for F1 teams to creating world-first high performance composite structures for yachts for the likes of Team Invictus, Future Fibres Rigging Systems (FFRS), Formtech Composites, Caterham Composites.
Over 10 years experience founding and growing a technology startup based in silicon valley. The technology Adam has developed uses big data tools to expand the scope, reach and impact of sustainability programmes for the likes of PepsiCo, RB and Tesco.
Adam leads the technology team applying machine learning technologies, mathematics and distributed systems to the art of mould design. Current areas of focus and manufacture focusing on computational geometry, mesh analysis and computer vision/gradient descent methods.
Adam started working with composite materials in 2010 and via working in Formula One has gone on to gain a huge amount of experience across a range of roles.
Complimenting his experience is a broad technical knowledge of the engineering and manufacturing processing involved in producing composite components and moulds using a variety of techniques, primarily for the demanding and fast-paced motorsport sector.
Always pushing himself, Adam is now undertaking an engineering degree alongside his Mouldbox commitments.
