Sicomin will be showcasing foaming epoxies for complex shaped automotive laminates which are suitable for the production of strong, high quality, structural parts that are too expensive or complex to create using a rigid foam or honeycomb core at JEC Europe 2015.
According to Sicomin, the foaming range negates the time and expense of CNC machining rigid cores. Instead, a closed cell foaming system, that is tailored to suit the customer’s production environment, generates a low pressure controlled expansion within the mould to produce a high quality finished part with no shrinkage.
Sicomin explains that its ultra-fast clear coating range provides a high mechanical performance with superior UV stability; a brilliant clear yet tough finish is achieved.
Sicomin’s accredited range of Fire Retardant products are used by many European Aerospace OEM’s. As a supplier to the German rail market, Sicomin says its advanced resin system SR1124 was recently awarded a Deutsche Bahn certification.
Alongside this focus, Sicomin will also present its diverse range of epoxy resins formulated specifically for marine and construction applications.
Sicomin will be exhibiting in Hall 7.3 on stand F64.
Stratasys announces it is deepening its partnership with Boom Supersonic – the Colorado-based company building history’s fastest supersonic airliner. In signing a seven-year agreement extension, the companies are further accelerating adoption of additive manufacturing for 3D-printed flight hardware.
CRP Technology collaborated with the Department of Aerospace Science and Technology of the Politecnico di Milano (PoliMi) on the construction of parts for the aeroelastic wind tunnel demonstrators for ‘Aeroelastic Flutter Suppression (AFS)’ e ‘GLAMOUR’ projects.
Research to develop a revolutionary high-performance composite metal hybrid stabiliser bar for trucks and trains has entered a new phase. The findings from the project to date show that the technology has the potential to spin out into other sectors such as aerospace and could see the UK take a global lead with this disruptive technology.
