CAD, FEA Analysis & Engineering
Rockman Advanced Composites is a one stop solution provider for all the advanced composites needs of the customer ensuring wide range of products, technologies and turnkey solutions. We work with customer from initial design concept, product development including material selection, prototyping, testing & then taking the product into mass production.
We have purpose built design & development centre with in house expertise of FEA Analysis, tooling designing, material Selection, laminate designing, Jig /Fixtures designing & range of composites manufacturing techniques. We manage smooth transition of newly designed product / manufacturing process to our in-house prototyping shop and then our mass production. Availability of in-house machining / manufacturing facility allows our designers to have more practical manufacturing approach to the designs / process documents.
Tooling, Jig & Component Machining
We have capabilities of designing, programming & machining of patterns, moulds & jigs made out of epoxy tooling blocks / aluminium / wood, machining of core materials & composites parts etc.
We have purpose built tooling & machining facilities which caters needs of tooling manufacturing & high precision trimming of composites parts. We have 5 Axis machines with working envelopes up to L 3.6m x W 1.8m x H 1.2m, 4 Axis machines with working envelopes up to L 0.762m x W 0.406 x H 0.508m, 3 Axis machines with working envelopes up to L 4m x W 1.5m x H 0.4m & CNC Turning lathers with working dimensions up to Dia 0.264m x L 0.375m. These machines are capable of machining epoxy tooling, wood, aluminium, core materials, glass / carbon composites components.
Composites Parts & Moulds Manufacturing
We have expertise in manufacturing moulds made up of carbon fiber prepregs & parts made up of Carbon, Glass, Kevlar, Hybrid prepregs & various types of Sandwich panels made up of rohacells, honeycomb, balsa wood, aramid core etc.

Quality is massively important and we aim to provide all our customers with products and services that meet or even exceed their requirements. We are ISO 9001:2015 & AS9100-D certified. We have also undergone numerous Automotive / Aerospace / Defence / Railway OEMs audits & successfully cleared / registered with them.
We have dedicated QC area equipped with surface tables & 7 Axis FARO arm laser scanner fitted with touch probe and also machine verification by touch probe on CNC machines. With our QMS- Quality Management System & QR code controlled ERP system, we can carefully control the processes of the product lifecycle like traceability of materials, product configuration, process flow, in process / final quality etc of all the tooling’s, jigs & all the components manufactured by us. We are committed and continue to deliver the highest quality products and services to all of our customers.
We work with world’s leading logistic companies for road, sea & air shipments. Major part of our shipments is done via air shipment with delivery to customer place in US or Europe in a weeks’ time in a most cost effective way.
Currently we are running between 2 and 3 regular shipments per week to UK / US / Europe. Shipping times are typically 7-10 days in a regular air shipment. Express air shipment is possible in 3-4 days. Large components supported, complete SUV racing series bodywork supplied from India by air shipment. Shipment by sea usually takes 30-45 days & large heavy volume parts are shipped by sea.
