Win
a trip to Dubai with your application idea!

As Rheocasting now have made it´s commercial breakthrough we are looking for bright ideas to get further.  With this we mean to find applications where Rheocasting will increase products functionality by lowering weight or other technical characteristics and reducing the total cost why we invite You and Your colleges to join our competition.

THE PRIZE

The winner will receive a vacation trip for two in the end of October to Dubai where air tickets and hotel is paid for and for a day we will surprise You.

THE RULES

The selection of the winner will be based on the best potential gain by using the benefits of Rheocasting by analyzing the before and after summary of every contribution in the competition. The application could be a casting of today as well as something not even casted or already designed, thinking out of the box is appreciated.

Format of Your contribution should be a written description in English with maximum 3 pages that includes the following:

  • Before and after table describing the improvements.

  • Environmental impact and sustainability for the greater good.

  • The improvement appreciated/assed in weight reduction. total cost estimate, MTBF improvement or other.

  • Picture of the application and parts with general data.

Potential tax profits are not paid by Comptech AB.
