UTILIZATION OF INNOVATIVE TECHNIQUES IN ULTRA-LIGHT AUTOMOBILE PRODUCTION
The paper presents the results of research focused on the use of innovative processes in the production of composite materials. The experimental work was focused on the use of Vacuum Bag Molding technology in the production of the prototype of the Shell Ecomarathon formula. The car body was designed with 3D modeling and optimized with airflow simulation. Carbon fibers have been used to reduce the vehicle’s weight. Some complementary parts were produced using 3D printing.
