Italian composite 3D printer materials manufacturer CRP Technology has revealed details of its technological partnership with Energica Motor Company in preparation for the 2019 FIM Enel MotoE ™ World Cup.

As the first MotoE World Cup for electric motorbikes, the Grand Prix will feature the participation of twelve teams from nine countries, all riding the Energica Ego Corsa. Though CRP has hinted at its development of this bike for sometime, this is the first time it has revealed the specific applications of Windform composite 3D printer materials in the vehicle’s development stages.

CRP - Technology - CNC - Company - CRP

CRP Technology together with CNC machining company CRP Meccanica form the CRP Group. Founded in 1970, the group is a well established figure in motorsport engineering and lead investor in the Energica Motor Company which was founded in 2014. CRP Technology is the group’s additive manufacturing division and was established in 1996.

“The original company was a mechanical engineering company doing CNC machining of motorsport parts and mechanical equipment,” explains Franco Cevolini, VP and Technical Director at CRP Technology, “Then when in 1996 I started to work inside the company, together with my father, we decided to study new technologies, and at that time we identified Selective Laser Sintering as the technology to explore for the manufacture of wind tunnel models for F1 instead of using subtractive technology.”

Company - Windform - XT - Carbon - Fiber

The company introduced its Windform XT carbon fiber composite SLS material in 2005. Now the CRP composite 3D printer materials range covers a selection of different carbon fiber filled and glass fiber reinforced polyamides, plus Windform FX BLACK, which is characterized by exceptional resistance to repeated bending and torsion. The material shows excellent impact resistance even at low temperatures. Its consistency and behavior are similar to polypropylene and ABS injection molded parts.

Each of CRP Technology’s materials are designed for high performance applications, producing end...
