Bonding for composite components

Bonding for composite components

BigHead Bonding Fasteners is providing sponsorship and supplier partnerships for several college and university level competitions and projects for engineering design. The list includes race car, solar powered vehicles and even submarine design projects as far and wide as the UK, India and the USA. These student challenges are bound by a common goal that focuses strongly on design innovation factors to yield benefits such as improved performance, enhanced fuel economy and increased endurance

This can be largely attributed to adopting aerodynamic lines and lightweighting through composite materials technologies. The design and manufacture of the composite components and provision for their efficient assembly are often closely comparable to those real-world applications that BigHead encounter on a daily basis

BigHead’s prominent role for discreet fastening in automotive manufacturing and other industries, and its shared work with research programmes such as the KTP funded project with Cranfield University´s Composites Centre makes it an ideal partner to help students; not just with products but with full technical support. 

Projects include the Formula Student and Formula SAE competitions where teams are challenged to build and race a single-seat formula car with marks awarded for a number of different event areas including design, economy and endurance.
