Every day, engineers are searching for solutions that are faster, stronger, lighter…
Engineers, designers, and dreamers don’t see the world as it is, but as it could be. It is from their minds that the impossible becomes possible.
Owens Corning introduces its key reinforcement products that push the boundaries of what’s possible with the SMC technology in the transportation and automotive fields.
From the ME1975 glass fiber roving for Class A SMC which enables flexible styling and redefined surface appearance, to ME1510 glass fiber roving for Epoxy SMC helping with up to 60% glass content achievable, VOC/odor free process and dent resistance.
This supported with Academic expert point of views: Professor Frank Henning, and David Bücheler of the Fraunhofer ICT, Germany, and students (Team Kuzo) finalists of the SMC/BMC Design Awards 2017, Antwerp University, Belgium. Thinking beyond what’s possible with SMC.
Finn Kooijman (student Industrial Design Engineering at Technical University Delft) has won the Gold Award of the SMC BMC Design Award 2019. During the Award Ceremony at Composites Europe he presented the Arcus, a docking and recharge unit for electrical scooters. Arcus offers an innovative solution for the littering of cities by electrical vehicles, while still promoting sustainable transport of people in urban environments.
