The new issue of Products Finishing for January 2015 shows Espo's Powder Coating putting a finishing touch on a Formula SAE car owned by Columbia University's Knickerbocker Motorsport.
Formula SAE is a collegiate student design competition organized by SAE International. The concept behind Formula SAE Student Design is that a fictional manufacturing company has contracted a design team to develop a small Formula-style race car. The prototype race car is to be evaluated for its potential as a production item. The target marketing group for the race car is the non-professional weekend autocross racer.
Each college team designs, builds and tests a prototype based on a series of rules whose purpose is both to ensure onsite event operations and promote clever problem solving.
Vinod Nimmagadda from Columbia University's Formula SAE program saw the cover shot of Tom Esposito powder coating the frame.
"This makes me immensly proud," he said.
