Zoltek will be showcasing a special display on the new Uniti electric car at JEC World.
Designed and produced in Sweden, the Uniti One debuted in December 2017. In place of a traditional metal design, the Uniti One features a body based on carbon fibre and bio-composite materials. Each car utilises approximately 20 kg of Zoltek PX35 carbon fibre, resulting in substantial weight savings without sacrificing safety or comfort.
On display at the Zoltek stand will be pieces of an actual Uniti vehicle, as well as a virtual reality experience.
Visit Zoltek in Hall 5, Stand J21 at JEC World 2018.
The Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI) has announced the Phase I completion of a project led by DuPont, partnering with Fibrtec and Purdue University, focused on the creation of a new carbon fibre composite manufacturing process that exhibits improved fabric formability characteristics compared to traditional woven materials.
CGTech will showcase its expanded range of software applications for the aerospace industry at the Farnborough International Airshow on 16-20 July 2018.
Powertrains, be they conventional, hybrid or fully electric, will need to be light in weight if carmakers are to meet the stringent regulations on carbon dioxide emissions (CO2) to come into force in 2025 – and composites will be key to making this happen. This was the message highlighted at the Lightweight Composite Solutions Conference organised by Vyncolit and Sumitomo Bakelite Co Ltd and held in Gent, Belgium.
