Odyssey Electric Aircraft

The Odyssey is a lightweight composites electric aircraft from the brain of Russ Emanis. The Odyssey is intended to highlight lightweight composites and home built aircraft by being a technological showcase built through the Advanced Composite Infusions program with EAA Airventure Oshkosh. Background: Russell Emanis is composites process consultant who started with surfboards in his […]

Funny Fork – FF-01/02

The Funny Fork project started as the simple desire to understand the handling characteristics of suspensions systems which were non telescopic in nature.  Having few modern interpretations of linkage suspension systems available to test and tinker, I set about creating one.  My goal was a prototype which would allow for a variety of setup options […]

Funny Fork – Public Introduction

Carbon Bicycle Stem

This stem was designed, and manufactured as a case study for understanding the application of low volume, rapid cycle time, soft tooling in producing high end bicycle components.  The ability to have non uniform wall thickness allows for the creation fine details and engineered shapes such as internal ribbing or integrated components.  Styling, Mold Design, Machine […]

Carbon Bicycle Brake Rotor

In 2011 while validating composite materials for use in Surgical Instrumentation JGW was introduced to SIOC materials and the process to produce green and cured carbon ceramic matrix materials.  Carbon Ceramic Matrix materials have great strength to weight properties as well as the ability to maintain this strength while producing a suitable braking surface for friction […]
