Fastening SMC panels: As part of our R&D partnership with Cranfield University, we have produced a demonstration mould tool that shows how bigHeads can be embedded into that trickiest of materials and processes, sheet moulding compound (SMC), without any ingress of resin into the fixing. Furthermore, our embedding solution is a one-step process that removes the need for any secondary processes like drilling or punching to insert a fastener.
At bigHead Bonding Fasteners we don’t just make fasteners. We also understand the challenges of composite moulding processes and tooling. We can work with you to optimise the fastener for not just your final product, but for your manufacturing process also.
We would be delighted to show you how our innovation can streamline your production process, and even simplify your mould tool design. Our development office is located in Cranfield Technology Park, just next to Cranfield University.
