About Arris Composites Taiwan 棱合

Arris Composites, headquartered in California, USA has recently opened a new facility in Taichung. Arris Composites Taiwan 棱合, is funded in part by Taiwania Capital, Taiwan’s national investment arm. By partnering with cutting edge startups, Taiwania establishes partnerships with companies worldwide to boost Taiwan’s economic growth.

From a team that has been instrumental in the development of leading 3D printing and advanced manufacturing technologies comes the biggest development yet. At higher strength and lower density than titanium, carbon fiber composites hold the potential to change the world by unlocking novel design architectures that deliver unparalleled performance at lighter weights. Despite this potential, the complexity and cost of designing and manufacturing these anisotropic materials has limited their use to high-end, niche applications. Arris Composites has solved this problem and top global companies have taken notice. New design latitude and improved performance provides competitive advantages for leaders across the industrial and consumer markets. Your view of composites is about to change.
