Insight: Composite Materials: New Trends in Automotive Design (DVD)

“Spotlight on Design: Insight” features an in-depth look at the latest technology breakthroughs impacting mobility. Viewers are virtually taken to labs and research centers to learn how design engineers are enhancing product performance/reliability, reducing cost, improving quality, safety or environmental impact, and achieving regulatory compliance.

When automotive and aerospace manufacturers look for a material with superior lightweight and strength characteristics, they often look no further than composite materials.

In the episode “Composite Materials: New Trends in Automotive Design” (10:20), an engineer from Molded Fiber Glass Research Company demonstrates how they develop and test the properties of composite materials, and an engineer at MirTEQ Incorporated discusses designing molds for an aftermarket composite part.

This episode highlights multiple areas of interest, including:

  • Manufacturing of composite materials
  • Testing composite materials for weight change as a function of temperature
  • Hands-on demonstration of molding of an aftermarket composite part
