One Eighty is made up of a team of highly creative, vibrant and well-trained engineers. We are a group of metallurgical, materials and mechanical graduate consulting engineers. One Eighty prides itself on being able to solve highly technical problems with reliable skills and abilities. The company specialises in applying high-level technical skills to everyday engineering problems providing elegant, efficient and cost-effective engineering solutions.
Our engineering solutions focus on the challenges of manufactured products made of any material or chemical including: metallic alloys, polymers, ceramics, concrete, composites, organic and inorganic chemicals.
Advanced materials include ceramics, composites, concrete, glass and polymers (plastics).
Additionally, One Eighty’s Advanced Materials services also entail testing and research of various types of oils and lubricants, water and chemical analyses.
One Eighty works across industries such as Oil and Gas, Marine, Fabrication, Manufacturing, Automotive, Aerospace, Defence, Food and Beverage and Power Generation and in verticals that include Failure Investigation, Technology Development, Capital Projects, Non-metallic materials, Value-added Services, Welding Engineering, Auditory Function, Consulting Engineering.
One Eighty’s unique ability to assist many sectors, not only with regular testing, but also with research and development, failure investigation and material selection, makes One Eighty a key technology partner across all engineering fields.
The Advanced Materials unit at One-Eighty uses high level technology to solve real life problems. We will assess and analyse any problems associated with a product, then identify the necessary testing required to solve the problem. Critical to our service is the effective interpretation of the test data to reliably solve the problem associated with the product or process.
