  • ISO 9001:2015
    Quality Management

    Earlier in 2016 our Quality Management System was certified to ISO 9001:2015 (the latest version of the globally recognised standard). Product traceability is a core focus at Calm Aluminium, with Mill Certifcates available on request.

  • Hard To
    Find Alloys

    The team at Calm Aluminium has many years of experience in the industry, so when it comes to sourcing hard to find metals, we are here to help. Coupled with a global network of mills and distributors, we can source the alloys that others cannot.

  • Precision
    Cutting

    Our Precision Plate Saw from MetlSaw (USA) can cut up to 12" thick material with very close tolererance cuts. It is the largest and fastest saw of its kind in Australia. The close tolerance cuts allow for less wastage and shorter machining times.

  • Precision Cast
    Tooling Plate

    We are the Australian Distributors for Vista Metals and Alimex, two of the big names when it comes to precision cast tooling plate production. Due to its versatility, and consistent mechanical and dimensional characteristics, precision cast tooling plate is often the product of choice.

The SAE International Formula SAE program is an engineering design competition for undergraduate and graduate students. The competition provides participants with the opportunity to enhance their engineering design and project management skills by applying learned classroom theories in a challenging competition. The engineering design goal for teams is to develop and construct a single-seat race car for the non-professional weekend autocross racer with the best overall package of design, construction, performance and cost.

The concept behind Formula SAE is that a fictional manufacturing company has contracted a design team to develop a small Formula-style race car. The prototype race car is to be evaluated for its potential as a production item. The target marketing group for the race car is the non-professional weekend autocross racer. Each student team designs, builds and tests a prototype based on a series of rules whose purpose is both to ensure onsite event operations and promote clever problem solving. The vehicle will be inspected in a series of tests to ensure it complies with the competition rules; in addition, the vehicle with driver will be judged in a number of performance tests on track. The rest of the judging is completed by experts from motorsports, automotive, aerospace and supplier industries on student design, cost and sales presentations.

In 1982, solar pioneers Hans Tholstrup and Larry Perkins, embarked on a quest that would see them drive a home-built solar car Quiet Achiever across Australia from west to east. Inspired by this achievement and his own pioneering vision, Hans urged others to explore the boundaries of sun-powered transport.

And so the World Solar Challenge was born.

Inaugurated in 1987 with pioneer sponsor, the South Australian Tourism Commission, the World Solar Challenge continues to showcase the development of advanced automotive technology and promote alternatives to conventional vehicle engines.

Today, while solar cars test the ultimate boundaries of energy efficiency, they also provide incredible insights into the capabilities of everyday vehicle technology. These innovations are at the heart of all electric cars, whether that power comes from hydrogen fuel cells, hybrid engines or even fully-electric commuter cars that draw power from solar cells on the garage roof – they all use the technology that is continually honed to perfection in the World Solar Challenge.

Utilising no more than six square metres of solar panels, some of the world’s brightest young minds are on track to develop the most efficient electric vehicles possible. And every two years, teams from leading international universities and technical institutes, together with private entrepreneurs, come together Down Under to test and promote the ultimate synergy of nature, motion and innovation.

We sponsor the UNSW team, Sunwift. Sunswift consists of a variety of motivated students from various backgrounds and degrees such as: Mechanical, Electrical, Renewable Energy, Photovoltaics, Computer Science, Commerce, Arts and Industrial Design.
