CRP Technology will be presenting at Composites in Motorsport, which is being held on the 22-23 October 2019 at the Williams F1 Conference Centre, Oxford, UK.

CRP Technology AM expert representative will be giving a presentation entitled: ‘How Additive Manufacturing composite materials drive EV Motorsports’. The speech is set at 13:30 on 23 October 2019. 

“We have been invited to submit a presentation under their electric motorsport technology session,” Franco Cevolini, CTO and VP at CRP Technology commented. “We accepted with pleasure. The Motorsport industry has continuously been a primary adopter of innovative technology: CRP companies (CRP Technology and CRP Meccanica) with their pioneering works, are still helping the Motorsport industry to benefit from the use of the most advanced additive and subtractive technology. Composites in Motorsport is the right stage for sharing our long-standing experience and knowledge.”

The presentation will be examining how EV Motorsport industry is taking advantages from the use of high performance additive composite materials, focusing on the connection between CRP and Energica, the world’s first Italian racing-bred electric motorcycle.

“CRP companies,” Cevolini commented, “have been acting as Energica’s technology and financial incubator, and still do.” 

The use of additive manufacturing and CRP Technology’s Windform composite materials marked a crucial stage in the development and construction of all Energica’s electric motorcycle models, Ego Corsa (the race motorbikes for the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup) included.

“The Ego Corsa race motorbikes,” Cevolini added, “are derived from Energica Ego, the World’s First Italian street-legal Electric, and mounted a lot of parts and applications manufactured by CRP Meccanica and CRP Technology. Last March the MotoE suffered a setback, when a fire in Jerez destroyed much of the material, Ego Corsa machines included. By the end of May, Energica have built all of the Ego Corsa machines needed, in a record time of less than three months. CRP Technology and CRP Meccanica’s technological support was crucial for the rebuilding of the machines, on a par with the commitment made by all the parties involved. The experience gained in 50 years of activity serving the most advanced sectors, has allowed us to address the situation in the most proper and efficient way.”
