bigHead® tackles challenging composite fastening applications at JEC World 2018 – Hall 6, Stand E45

24 Jan 2018

bigHead® returns to JEC World 2018 this year with design engineers on hand to discuss composite fastening applications.  The emphasis will be on engineering solutions that avoid the typical compromises between form and function, and ways to improve process efficiency.

Most recently bigHead has been developing a new way to fasten lightweight automotive panels in just seconds, called Lean Bonding®.  This is part of bigHead’s focus on streamlining process technology to support higher volume automated production, such as in the automotive EV market. Efficient composite fastening is important to these processes.

bigHead’s most recent addition to the team, Dr Lawrence Cook, will be on the bigHead stand to offer advice and insight.  An expert in composites technology, Dr Cook comes to bigHead having led a number of industry research projects at Cranfield University.
