Carbon Revolution – Australian Innovation in Advanced Manufacturing


Carbon Revolution has commercialised the
world’s first one-piece carbon fibre wheel We’re now supplying wheels for
major automotive programs like the new Mustang by the Ford Motor Company. Carbon fibre is a new and exotic material it’s incredibly strong it’s much stronger
than steel and aluminium and extremely light. Lightweight wheels on a vehicle
enable the performance to be enhanced very significantly but that all
translates into enormous efficiency benefits so these are all very important
to global car makers today we’re based on the campus of Deakin University this
is a purpose-built factory just to make carbon fibre wheels it’s the only one of
its kind in the world. Within about a hundred metres we have Deakin University
we have Carbon Nexus and we have the CSIRO all on the one campus so right at
our fingertips we have a great set of research and development partners to
help us with the work that we’re doing here. I think everyone who’s part of this team is incredibly proud of what we’ve done
it’s not often that you get to to be at the forefront of creating a new
industry and something that has such a huge market.
