CRP Technology made available its technological expertise in Additive Manufacturing to Energica during the off season to get ready for the MotoE™ event
Energica Motor Company once again will be providing the Ego Corsa machines – and technical support – for the 18 riders and twelve teams entering the FIM Enel MotoE™ World Cup competition in 2020.
Although the forced stop due to Covid-19 disease will lead to a reprogramming of the 2020 sporting events calendars, the work “behind the track” for Energica and its suppliers began many months ago, reaching its climax in the weeks immediately following the end of the 2019 Championship.
VP and CTO CRP Technology, Eng. Franco Cevolini, commented, “As Energica’s technological and financial incubator, CRP Technology have been supporting the development of Energica Ego Corsa for the 2019 competition. We are still working alongside Energica to reach a new season as superb as the past one.”
Energica, the single manufacturer of the series, has been working hard during the off season to get ready for the MotoE™ event and the same have been doing CRP Technology.
“The Ego Corsa – added Eng. Cevolini – is the state-of-the-art electric racing motorcycle developed by Energica. Ego Corsa shares common ground with the road-going Ego, which was created and engineered through the support of CRP Technology’s expertise. Our innovative and avant-garde solutions in the field of Additive Manufacturing technology, especially Selective Laser Sintering process with our 3D printing materials, have made Energica a unique model throughout the world, allowed Energica to be chosen by Dorna for the new era of electric motorcycle racing.”
On March 10-12 the first of the two official tests were held at Jerez helping the riders and teams get up to speed ahead of the season.
Alongside MotoE riders and teams, Energica’s test squad was also on track with the Modena-based company’s official test rider, Alessandro Brannetti. He brought forward the development work of the Ego Corsa, which includes parts and applications manufactured by CRP Techology. For instance, some components inside the Ego Corsa’s new battery were 3D printed by CRP Technology using Selective Laser Sintering and Windform® FR2, the newest and disruptive material from the Windform® TOP-LINE range of composite materials for LS technology, created by CRP Technology itself.
