While scientists have studied ways to maximize automotive safety for over a century, nature has been developing efficient structures to protect life for billions of years.
In Tony McConnell’s upcoming presentation at Foam Expo North America, we’ll look at a few biological structures (including banana peels and human bones) that have inspired innovative new concepts for foam composite materials.
Literally cutting-edge, Tony’s presentation will explore how high-speed CNC foam cutting processes combined with new nature-inspired lattice structures can produce materials that:
- Reduce weight in EV and aerospace applications without compromising on impact safety.
- Improve thermal insulation to reduce battery consumption in EVs.
- Give you, your family (and maybe your pilot) a quieter ride.
