UK innovators showcase their tech at ATI and HVMC event

Innovators from across the UK were invited to showcase their ground-breaking technologies, processes or materials at the Innovation in Aerospace Manufacturing event hosted by the ATI and HVMC at the MTC in Coventry this week.

Selected SMEs and start-ups presented their innovations with potential applications in aerospace including processes, technologies and materials as part of our initiative, the ATI Hub. ATI Hub Showcase events are an opportunity for high potential organisations to present their work to industry, investors and fellow innovators with the aim of creating new connections and accelerating the adoption to next generation technologies.

From 3D X-ray diagnostic imaging to new materials, the companies showcasing at the Innovation in Aerospace Manufacturing event reflected the range of expertise working to deliver our sector’s sustainability goals. Find out more about these organisations below:

Adaptix |

AdaptixNDE Digital Tomosynthesis technology offers portable, 3D X-ray, for composite and metal additive manufacturing in routine inspection providing 3D internal imaging akin to Computed Tomography (CT) with the deploy-ability and ease-of-use of ultrasonics. Their technology delivers faster, more mobile and less intrusive diagnostic imaging compared to CT scanning owing to it’s top-down, in-situ usability.

Ai Build |

Ai Build is a London-based additive manufacturing software company. Their AiSync software automates the generation of production ready 3D print files to provide fast, efficient and predictable additive manufacturing. Robotic and gantry 3D printing systems use polymers and metals in a process which is monitored, controlled, measured and optimised across machine fleets.

Alloyed |

Alloyed is a venture-funded company of 100 world-class metallurgists, mechanical engineers, technicians and software developers working to build the future of advanced metal components. Alloyed uses proprietary software which combines advanced machine learning, physical modelling, and extensive experimental facilities to create better alloys and devise better ways to process them.


Enable Manufacturing aims to bridge the gap between additive manufacturing and casting using an Additive Casting process. Additive Casting is a combination of 3D printing and traditional metal casting, which allows for the production of cast or fully finished parts in any size, material, and complexity.

Hive Composites |

Hive is a company based on Loughborough University’s Science and Enterprise Park. Their team has a great deal of experience in designing, developing, and testing composite products for a variety of industries and are currently working on novel multifunctional material systems for composite tooling, deicing, EMC as well as low viscosity thermoplastics. They are developing disruptive composite technologies while their self-heated tooling system significantly reduces the energy required to cure parts, compared to oven and autoclave curing.


TISICS develops greener and cheaper aircraft and spacecraft components using advanced materials to accelerate the transition to Net Zero. A world-leader in aluminium composites, titanium composites and net shape forming, TISICS designs and manufactures lightweight components delivering 50% mass reduction on existing parts and 70% on future system designs.

WAAM3D is the only provider of a total, turnkey solution for additive manufacturing delivered via a Wire+Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM) ecosystem. This ecosystem is based on in-house developed products (large scale metal 3D printers, CAM and Control software), services (training, life cycle assessment technology transfer, industrialization), and materials. WAAM3D is helping aerospace designers to increase design freedom, reduce costs and shorten lead times for medium-to-large sized components made from alloys of titanium, aluminium, iron, nickel and many others.
