BigHead (Verwood, U.K.) is launching Core Range, a new range of fasteners for both surface bonded and embedded applications. Core Range fasteners are able to provide engineers with application performance data and composite design guidelines to simplify product selection and streamline composite joint design. The company says its design rules enable engineers to predict the behavior of composite joints and avoid costly changes later in the process.
