Most manufacturers on the market produce end caps that are not made entirely of carbon fibre; for this reason these products have a shorter lifecycle. This situation was remedied by developing and producing exhaust covers entirely from carbon fibre. As a result, the product now has a much longer service life, not to mention significantly enhanced rigidity. The specially developed production process used to make very high quality carbon fibre components was also highly suitable for series production.
Our landscape is subject to regular geological surveys. Since laser scanners tend to be very heavy, these measurements are generally carried out from calibration aircraft, which is very expensive. This situation led to the development of a drone weighing just 12kg and with a carrying capacity of 20kg. The special development of fibre-reinforced hollow profiles made it possible to combine a very low weight with a relatively high carrying capacity.
A Harley Davidson Street 750 was modified and individualised for a King of Custom event. Strong interest in the conversion kit led to the idea of specifically offering the kit as a small-scale series involving small quantities. The tailpiece was duly simplified, combining three tail segments into one. The seat was also adapted accordingly. The whole of the tailpiece now comprises carbon fibre, making it visually – and technically – eye-catching.
To mark the 120th anniversary of a reputable company, a top architect and founder of a leading architectural and design firm in Mexico was invited to work on a project for presentation at the Miami design fair. He drew inspiration from pre-Hispanic culture, in which the sun and the relationship with nature play major roles. The project combined creativity, engineering and the highest technological standards. A globe is approached via a meshed icosahedron surface embedded with numerous crystals, with internal lighting producing a beautiful effect. The main technical achievement is the fact that the network bears four times its own weight, while the globe has a diameter of 1.4 metres.
When urinating into a sample cup, the environment around the urethra can cause contamination of the sample, which will then deliver incorrect values. The developed URD simplifies the suprapubic bladder puncture procedure, whereby fluid is taken directly from the bladder. This fast and virtually painless procedure is carried out by pressing a single button.
An e-cigarette already on the market required a facelift. This involved devising a fresh design and a function aimed at simplifying filling. A top-filling system was developed to enable the cigarette to be filled very easily by turning down the mouthpiece.
