CRP Technology Presents 3D Printing Advances at Engine Expo 2018

At Engine Expo 2018, CRP Technology will highlight how 3D printing solutions using its Windform composite materials is helping automotive manufacturers accelerate vehicle development times and increase performance.

Jose Antonio Almenara, CRP Technology’s Additive Manufacturing Representative, will deliver a presentation entitled 'How to increase engine performance with 3D printing and Windform' at the Engine Expo Forum on 6 June. He will use customer examples to demonstrate how to optimise the 3D printing process with the company's composite materials and laser sintering (LS) technology. The presentation will discuss the integration of additive manufacturing and professional 3D printing with high performance composite materials into design and R&D activity to allow the manufacture of prototypes and end-use parts, with greater complexity and functionality, faster than with traditional methods. Reducing prototyping cycles makes it possible to verify, iterate and test designs significantly faster and consequently shorten the overall design and product development processes.

Almenara will share CRP Technology’s experiences in pushing the boundaries of conventional design in the motorsports and automotive field. He will discuss the production of an intake manifold with LS technology and how it’s possible to mount it to a live engine for testing or racing. He will share CRP’s latest challenge in the manufacturing of a functional NACA duct via 3D printing, and how it helped break a long-standing speed record, and the development of Energica Ego, a street-legal electric motorcycle. Energica Ego will be employed by teams at the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup in a tuned version, the Ego Corsa. CRP continues to collaborate closely with Energica to achieve optimal results in a very short time.

Engine Expo takes place in Stuttgart, Germany, on 5-7 June 2018.
