SMTC’s Dynatech® solution lightens the mood at Aircraft Interiors 2014

Aurore Bernard - 02-avr.-2014 17:23:38
SMTC, a specialist in the design and manufacturing of composite sandwich panels, has unveiled Dynatech ®, a highly innovative weight-reducing system for aircraft and high-speed-train interiors. The company will be showcasing the full range of Dynatech® products at Aircraft Interiors Expo 2014, which is taking place in Hamburg (Germany) from 8 to 10 April. Christophe Jenny, CEO of SMTC, says: “With Dynatech®, a truly revolutionary technology, we proactively made a major investment in mass production with high repeatability, in order to better serve our customers’ needs regarding significant weight savings, better mechanical properties, lower total system costs, and recyclability. We see ourselves as a carrier for solutions that fulfil the needs of society and, thus, are happy to contribute to the reduction of CO2 emission, to the performance of mass transport, and to the comfort and accessibility of passengers.” SMTC will be showcasing its Dynatech® technology at Aircraft Interiors E xpo 2014, to be held in Hamburg (in northern Germany) from 8 to 10 April of this year. The company will be exhibiting on the French Pavilion, in Hall B6 of the trade fair. Dynatech® products have been developed specifically for use in light-weight and high-performance applications such as damage tolerance as well as superior fire, smoke and toxicity (FST) values. Due to the thermoplastic nature of the Dynatech® solution as a ready-to-be-formed sandwich system, Dynatech® parts can be mass-produced, within the manufacturing process of various complex-shaped parts in the interior of aircraft and trains, including doors, luggage racks, seats, side-walls, trolleys, tables, etc. Based on the use of polyetherimide (PEI) in situ foam panels, Dynatech® technology also offers better thermic and acoustic isolation, as compared to traditional honeycomb designs based on thermoset panels: ultimately, this also contributes to the comfort of the traveller. “The Dynatech® revolution is down to an entirely new way of making sandwich panels based on full thermoplastic PEI material. These panels can also be formed into a variety of shapes, with different edging options,” explains Christophe Jenny. SMTC, which formerly focused on producing aluminium-based honeycomb systems, acquired the Dynatech® solution from inventor and patent-holder FITS Technology. SMTC is now developing and investing in the technology with a view to providing a completely new thermoplastic mass-market solution. Martin de Groot, CEO of FITS Technology and inventor of the process, explains: “My goal was to achieve maximum weight reduction to improve the ecological footprint of aircraft. In comparison with traditional sandwich systems, Dynatech® is much less labour-intensive thanks to its automated processing. Dynatech® now allows for extremely short-cycle times of only a few minutes for the pressing process. It also outperforms traditional material by offering a maximum manufacturing time of 30 seconds per edge.” In the steadily growing aircraft and high-speed-train end-markets, safety, weight and space-saving become more stringent, with a growing demand for enhanced performance. Dynatech® allows aircraft and train builders to use thinner layers of sandwich material, therefore creating more space for travellers. Its unique heat-resistance properties make Dynatech® a highly desirable and long-lasting material to be used for interiors. Furthermore, Dynatech’s® unique automa ted production guarantees higher quality standards and better control possibilities, which is greatly appreciated by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). Due to SMTC’s patented closed-box procedure, this system allows for the sophisticated design of the edge close-out, which actually becomes the strongest part of the unit. Dynatech® can, therefore, provide a total system-cost reduction of between 20% and 30%, as well as weight reduction of between 20% and 40%. The production of a range of pilot Dynatech® products has already started: tests are being run and the first customers have received their prototypes. Full commercial production of the Dynatech® range is expected to be rolled out in 2016. About SMTC   SMTC is a French-based company with over 30 years’ experience in the design and manufacturing of composite sandwich panels. With this expertise and innovation at the heart of its strategy, SMTC contributes to the performance of mass transportation by producing light-weight solutions for the interior parts of trains, aircraft and cruise ships.

Wingit gets the party started in London and Tel Aviv

Coline BORDET - 26-févr.-2014 13:46:40
Wingit, the mobile application that enables users to pinpoint events happening in real time around them, has expanded to London (UK) and Tel Aviv (Israel), after its successful launch in New York (USA) in late 2012. The new 2.3 version of the geo-social app, which has been fully redesigned to include streamlined navigation and a sleek iOS7 design, is free to download from the App Store.   Wingit’s founder and CEO Alban Sayag says: “Wingit is a mobile app that enables people to organize great last-minute get-togethers with their friends. It finds the user’s location and scans social networks in real time in order to push information about the coolest events happening in and around their current location. It can be anything from a street concert or an art demonstration to a party in a club.”   Wingit stands out from other geolocation applications on the market thanks to its powerful proprietary algorithm, which is used to cross-reference the user’s current position with millions of pieces of information collected from social networks (such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) in order to find the most exciting and inspiring events taking place nearby, or about to take place in the neighbourhood where the person happens to be.   The events Wingit picks up can, for instance, consist of a jazz concert at a nearby bar, or the preview of an art exhibition open to the public at an art gallery in the next street, or a show by a stand-up comedian that would be about to start in a pub a few hundred yards away from where the user and his (or her) friends are.   It should be stressed that the app is free from advertising and pushes only relevant information with regard to the user’s current time and immediate position, avoiding unnecessary spam.   Alban Sayag explains: “The purpose of Wingit is not to create a new social network, but a social-networking platform whose main functionality is to find content and share it with others. It is easy to discover if friends are nearby, tell them about a cool event, and invite them to come along. Users can also create their own event and post it on the timeline. Wingit users never miss a great occasion to have fun!”   Having worked for several years in the IT sector, Alban Sayag came up with the idea for Wingit and started to create and develop the app and its algorithm with a group of developers in India. In September 2012, Wingit was launched as a pilot project in New York (USA). The application was rolled out over several districts including Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan and, once it had gained a sufficiently large audience, the company’s founders were able to secure significant Series A funding to grow the business.   Thanks to $1.1million worth of funding from solid investors – including venture capitalists, business angels and banks – Wingit has the means to expand and adapt its content to a number of cities around the world. London and Tel Aviv were added at the end of 2013 and dozens of others, including Paris, are expected to be incorporated in 2014.   Wingit can be downloaded for free from the App Store, where it has recently been featured in the What’s Hot – Social Networking section, and will be available on the Android platform in the second half of 2014.   About Wingit   Wingit is a free mobile application that enables users to find events that are currently (or soon to be) happening around them. Its powerful proprietary algorithm screens the main social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) to find up-to-date information on cultural and other events. This information is then cross-referenced with the current location of the user and notifications of nearby events are pushed to the mobile device.   Wingit was launched in New York (USA) by CEO Alban Sayag in 2012. It is now being rolled out in London (UK) and in Tel Aviv (Israel), and is due to expand to a number of other cities during 2014, including Paris (France).   Wingit is free to download from the App Store and will be available on Android platforms towards the end 2014.   To view Wingit’s short introductory video-clip, please go to: https://vimeo.com/86883287   For further information about the company, please go to: www.wingit.so     For further information, please contact :    Quote ref. : FTPB3917 Ms Kate RILEY - Press Officer UBIFRANCE Press Office in London Tel: +44 (0) 207 024 3640 kate.riley@ubifrance.fr View other press releases at : http://www.ubifrance.com/uk/

Elissance Paris range nails it at French Cosmetic Day 2014

Coline BORDET - 07-févr.-2014 12:30:39
Elissance Paris will be attending the French Cosmetic Day, in London (UK), on 25 February 2014, which will enable the company to showcase its three innovative products dedicated to restoring broken, damaged and dehydrated nails. The clinics run by development-laboratory Elissance Paris of France propose a three-stage treatment designed to reinvigorate and protect the nail, using products enriched with ultra-nourishing natural elements. Elissance Paris is seeking partners and distributors in Britain.   For several years, varnishing has been the must-have beauty product for those seeking to add a splash of colour to their wardrobe. However, the growth in the number of boutiques and nail bars offering a range of treatments — from semi-permanent varnishing to gel coating — has had a damaging effect on the health of women’s nails.   The removal of such treatments often involves the use of harsh chemicals and UV light, which damage and dry out the nail. Moreover, many external factors such as climate, diet and environment equally influence the state of a person’s nails. Elissance Paris’ solution is designed to reverse the damaging effects of modern treatments in a few simple stages.   The company will attend the French Cosmetic Day, a B2B event organised by the French Trade Commission UBIFRANCE in the UK on 25 February of this year. The French Cosmetic Day, which will take place from 12 noon to 3.00pm on the premises of the French Trade Commission, in the heart of the West End, will enable Elissance Paris to showcase its novel concept in Britain for the first time.   The Elissance Paris solution can be easily implemented in three stages. The first step involves reinvigorating the nails with Elixir, which is a nourishing solution composed of oils and natural essences including myrrh, chestnut oil, and vitamins A, E and Provitamin B5. This combination of ingredients encourages healing, regeneration and growth of the nail.   A generous amount of Elixir should be applied nightly to the cuticles, and then, delicately massaged into the nail. The surplus should be left overnight to be absorbed by the nail and the cuticle. The next morning, the Elixir should be washed away with soap and another base layer should be applied. This process should be repeated daily over a period of 10 days.   The second step involves the application of Le Gommage, the deep-cleaning formula that softens and eliminates dead cuticles from the surface of the nail, allowing for a complete clean. Le Gommage contains high levels of vitamins and proteins, as found in almond oil, which is valued for its moisturising and softening effect; lemon oil, for its purifying and antiseptic properties; and, finally, glycerine, in order to restore hydration to the skin and nail.   The third step involves protecting the nail with the 3-in-1 Varnish developed by Elissance Paris, which covers the nail in a protective film to render a natural, ultra brilliant finish. The formula is reinforced with vitamin E, which is high in antioxidants and gives protection, suppleness and moisture to the nail. The varnish also includes wheat-germ oil, which is rich in proteins that nourish, protect and stimulate the nail.   Subsequently, this unique formula can be used in combination with coloured varnish. As a base coat, the 3-in-1 Varnish effectively protects nails from the transfer of certain colours and is an ideal product to apply before coloured nail varnish. As a top coat, the product forms a protective film, which gives a high-shine finish and long-lasting maintenance to the colour.   About Elissance Paris   Based in the Paris region (France), B&SENS manufactures and distributes a range of innovative products under the Elissance Paris brand.
