1969 Lotus Europa S2 (09)
automotive mold design
Image by Georg Sander
The Lotus Europa was a two door mid-engined GT coupé built by Lotus Cars from 1966 to 1975. In 2006 Lotus began production of a totally new, Lotus Elise-derived design, a mid-engined GT coupé named Europa S.

The original Europa used Lotus founder Colin Chapman’s minimalist steel backbone chassis that was first used in the Lotus Elan, while also relying on its fibreglass moulded body for structural strength. The Europa was based on a prototype built to compete for Henry Ford II’s contract to build a Le Mans race car in the early 1960s.

The Europa was designed and built to be an embodiment of Chapman’s oft-stated philosophy of automotive design: "Simplify, then add lightness."

(Wikipedia)

Der Europa, im Dezember 1966 vorgestellt, war ursprünglich nur für die ausländischen (nicht-UK) Märkte bestimmt. Die ersten Fahrzeuge wurden nach Frankreich und in die Schweiz verkauft. Er verfügte über den gleichen Motor wie der Renault 16, jedoch war er hinter der Fahrgastzelle als Mittelmotor eingebaut. Dies verlieh dem Europa eine Straßenlage und Fahreigenschaften die eines Rennwagens würdig waren, auch sein Rahmen war für Motoren mit mehr als nur 1470 cm³ ausgelegt. Die Karosserie aus glasfaserverstärktem Polyester war mit einem Zentralträgerchassis aus Stahlblech zu einem geschlossenem Chassis verklebt. Diese Kombination war Voraussetzung für die hervorragenden Fahreigenschaften. Nur 296 Exemplare des ursprünglichen S1 (auf Basis des Grundgedankens des Lotus Gründers Colin Chapman ) wurden gebaut (Chassis Nummer 460001 bis 460296). Diese Fahrzeuge bestanden aus einer extrem minimalistischen Konstruktion, mit geschlossenen Seitenfenstern, festen Sitzen (nur die Pedale waren verstellbar), kaum Türverkleidungen und einfachen Aluminiuminstrumenten.

Ab 1969, anlässlich des Erscheinens der zweiten Serie (Europa S2), wurden Chassis und Karosserie miteinander verschraubt, was jedoch auch die ursprünglichen Fahreigenschaften änderte. Gleichzeitig wurde für den amerikanischen Markt ein Motor mit 1565 cm³ eingeführt. 1971 wurde der Europa TwinCam vorgestellt, der über einen Motor mit zwei Nockenwellen im Leichtmetallkopf und 1558 cm³ verfügte, wie er bereits im Lotus Elan eingebaut wurde. Ein Jahr später ging man zur leistungsgesteigerten Version „Big Valve“ (ähnlich wie beim Lotus Elan Sprint) über und verband ihn mit einem Renault 5-Gang-Getriebe. Diese neue Ausführung nannte man Europa Special.

Kevlar fibre composite shear surface
automotive parts mold
Image by CORE-Materials
DoITPoMS, University of Cambridge

This is an image of the shear surface in a failed composite beam. ‘Hackles’ of matrix are clearly visible where shear has occurred within the matrix and it is also clear that shear has occurred across the fibre/matrix interface. The fibres are for the most part totally unscathed, though some mis-aligned fibres have become caught between the shear surfaces and ‘fibrillated’ by rolling and bending actions. It may be that this failure mechanism has been partly inhibited by poor fibre alignment since some off-axis fibres will reinforce the matrix in shear. It will have been promoted, however, by the extensive longitudinal voids.

System
Kevlar composite

Composition
Kevlar fibre, epoxy resin matrix

Reaction
Kevlar is a lyotropic liquid crystal polymer. This means that it can be readily processed in solution (in this case, sulphuric acid). It is annealed under tension to increase its elastic modulus

Processing
A crude Kevlar composite was made by laying out 40 tows of fibre, painting them with epoxy resin, compressing them in a mould, and curing them for five hours at 100-190 degrees C

Applications
Kevlar composites are used as a structural material in the aerospace and automotive industries, as well as in certain high-performance sporting equipment. They present exceptional stiffness and can be structurally optimised for particular load-bearing applications.

Sample preparation
The bar has been bent to failure in a three-point bending rig.

Technique
Scanning electron microscopy (SEM)

Thereare a great many frames which taper materially in depth.For instance, the Scripps Booth, which is very noticeablein this respect, the depth of the frame being constant foronly a short portion of the length. The Maxwell is an-other example in which the frame tapers considerably indepth. The majority of frames, however, have only slighttaper and this takes place at the extremities. The bottle-neck type has about disappeared and in its place thetapered frame is used to get the narrow front end neces-sary to give narrow turning radius and a sightly frontend. There are not any noticeable steering developmentsexcept perhaps in the lubrication of the parts where prac-tice has been improved in line with what has already beensaid under the head of chassis lubrication.

CONTROLLED CRYSTALLIZATION RATE TO ELIMINATE PAINT
•OEM Make & Model: Ford Motor Co. 2013MY Ford Escape CUV & Fusion® sedan, & Lincoln® MKZ® luxuary sedan
•Tier Supplier/Processor: TRW Automotive, Key Plastics LLC
•Material Supplier / Toolmaker: Asahi Kasei Plastics North America / Liberty Molds, Inc., J&J Tool & Mold Ltd.
•Material / Process: Leona® 90G60 B3374 PA 6/6 / 6I / injection molding
•Description: In order to support greater design freedom for any shape and length register vanes while meeting stiffness, durability, and perceived quality requirements, a partially aromatic injection-molded PA 6/6 / 6I resin was used to boost modulus without increasing wall thickness or adding glass reinforcement to achieve a high-quality, MIC Class A surface without paint. Owing to the "kinked" crystalline structure of the semi-aromatic PA resin, crystallization rate can be better controlled, so parts fully pack out before skins freeze off, leading to a resin-rich surface with a smoother surface and better appearance, eliminating the need to paint.

Extremely rigid construction
high-quality automotive molding
Image by felixdaacat
Superior passive safety is only one benefit of the extreme rigidity of a full carbon fiber monocoque – very high torsional rigidity is another. The monocoque is connected at the front and rear with equally rigid aluminum sub-frames, on which the suspension, engine and transmission are mounted.

The entire body-in-white of the future V12 model weighs only 229.5 kilograms (505 lbs) and boasts phenomenal torsional rigidity of 35,000 Newton meters per degree of twist. This guarantees a superb feeling of solidity, but, more importantly, extremely exact wheel control with excellent steering precision and sensitive feedback. For the dedicated driver, both are essential for truly enticing driving pleasure. The new Lamborghini flagship responds to the most minute steering input with the stunning precision of a perfectly balanced race car.

Depending on the form, function and requirements of the individual elements, the Lamborghini development team selected from three main CFRP manufacturing methods within its technology tool kit. They differ not only in their production processes, but also in the type of carbon fiber and its weave and, most importantly, in the chemical composition of the synthetic resin used.

Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM): In this process the carbon fiber mats are preformed and impregnated with an exact amount of resin. Afterwards, they are cured under heat while the part is in the mould. Lamborghini has achieved a major breakthrough by further developing this method. Using the patented “RTM-Lambo” process, the final mould is no longer a heavy, complex metal piece, but is made instead from lightweight carbon-fiber parts, thus making the manufacturing process faster, more flexible and more efficient.
An additional benefit of the RTM-Lambo process is the low injection pressure that doesn’t require expensive equipment.

Prepreg – The carbon fiber mats used in this method, commonly known as prepreg, are pre-injected by the supplier with a thermosetting liquid resin and must be stored at a low temperature. The mats are then laminated in molds and cured under heat and pressure in an autoclave. Prepreg components are complex to make, but have an extremely high-quality surface finish (Class-A surface quality) and are therefore the preferred option for use in visible locations.

Braiding – These components are manufactured by using RTM technology. This carbon fiber weave technology is derived from the textile industry and used to make tubular components for special applications such as structural roof pillars and rocker panels. The woven components are made by diagonally interweaving the fiber in several layers.

The monocoque of the new V12 super sports car is constructed using these technologies applied in a series of special processes. One significant advancement Lamborghini realized is the ability to use already-assembled monocoque elements as the mould for the next step in the process. This makes for a considerable simplification of the manufacturing process compared with conventional methods.

Epoxy foam components are also used within the monocoque. They are placed in strategic points to increase the stiffness of the monocoque by working as spacers between the composite layers while also dampening noise and vibration. In addition, aluminum inserts are laminated into the front and rear surfaces to facilitate connection with the aluminum front and rear sub-frame elements.

Because of the complexity of the materials and process outlined above, Lamborghini decided to produce its new monocoque completely in-house, managing one strategic step in the production process.

Quality control is an absolutely crucial factor – every single monocoque is measured to exacting tolerances of only 0.1 millimeters, facilitating the extreme precision of the overall vehicle. Quality control starts with the purchase of the carbon fiber parts. Every delivery of carbon fiber is certified and the material is checked regularly for compliance with quality standards. Lamborghini worked together with its suppliers to develop a world-exclusive fiber and resin system for its RTM technology. Ultimately, these materials and processes constitute an important part of Lamborghini’s worldwide leading expertise in the field.

Carbon composite materials – A key technology for tomorrow’s high-performance automotive engineering

These materials made from CFRP combine the lowest possible weight with excellent material characteristics – they are very light, extremely rigid and exceptionally precise.

Furthermore, CFRP materials can also be formed into highly complex components with integrated functions. This reduces the number of individual parts when compared to traditional metal construction – thus enabling further weight reduction. Lighter cars have lower fuel consumption and fewer CO2 emissions. Most significantly, however, it improves the power-to-weight ratio – the deciding factor in the overall feel and performance of a sports car. A super sports car built using CFRP accelerates faster, has superior handling and better braking.
