Camoplast is the latest company to join forces on Velozzi’s AEV, bringing its design, development and manufacturing expertise to the project.

Together with Bayer MaterialScience (BMS), Camoplast will focus on molding components from BMS polyurethane resin and fiberglass reinforcements, using Camoplast’s proprietary Long Fiber (CLF) technology.

CLF allows manufacturers to produce large parts using the long fiber injection (LFI) process in which long glass fibers are injected along with polyurethane resin in a one-step process. Camoplast will collaborate on design through production to ensure the manufacturability of the components for mass production.

Camoplast and Bayer MaterialScience have previously collaborated in the development of personal watercraft. “When it comes to breakthrough performance, collaboration is the best route,” said Robert Burkhart, vice president sales & marketing and business development, Camoplast. “What excited us about joining the Velozzi project is the opportunity to reinvent approaches to automotive parts design and production, knowing the critical role that innovative materials play in AEV development and commercialization.”

“Our collaborations with Camoplast to date have overcome a range of design and performance challenges,” said Craig Snyder, market channel representative, Bayer MaterialScience LLC. “We are excited to welcome Camoplast to the Velozzi project as we work to drive innovation in the development of a new generation of super-efficient vehicles. We know firsthand that Camoplast has the tenacity, creativity and expertise to collaborate effectively and drive innovation.”
