In February 2014, HOPE Technik took part in the Singapore Airshow to test its “space plane”. Previously the company signed a deal with Airbus Defence and Space at the 2012 Singapore Airshow. The manufacturing of SMC is a continuous in-line process.

The process is particularly suited for automotive applications such as panels and seat backs as well as the general replacement of metal parts. Other possible applications include shower stalls, bathware, and fire helmets, among others.
