Vistagy will have the ING Renault F1 Team racing car on display at the their stand (#T50)./
In addition, senior CAE engineer, Ian Goddard, will make presentations throughout the duration of the show that explain how the Team’s close technical partnership with Vistagy has helped it meet production schedules and complex design challenges related to developing composite parts for the last five generations of its racing cars—including the R25 and R26 cars, which raced the team to victories in both the Federation Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) Formula One Drivers’ and Constructors’ World Championships in 2005 and 2006.
Mr. Goddard will also deliver a related presentation entitled “Renault F1 Team: an inside look at reducing composite cycle times and errors by automating analysis data transfer” during the Automotive End-users Forum on Wednesday, April 2 at 10:30. This will take place at the Paris Expo on the First Floor, Hall 1.
Similarly, new Vistagy technology will be highlighted in the Aeronautics End-users Forum during a presentation entitled “Using 3D software to compress composite part development cycles through concurrent engineering,” delivered by Mr. Johan Grape, VISTAGY director of technology. This presentation will take place on Thursday, April 3 at 10:30, also at the Paris Expo on the First Floor, Hall 1.
A team of engineers at the University of Delaware (UD) is developing next-generation smart textiles by creating flexible carbon nanotube composite coatings on a wide range of fibres, including cotton, nylon and wool.
SABIC is launching its STADECK heavy-duty panel for the building and construction industry. Made from glass fibre reinforced thermoplastic resin, the lightweight panel is said to offer significant advantages across a range of applications where weight saving is important.
