This year’s Consumer Electronics Show will see global leader in applied additive and subtractive technologies CRP Group demonstrate how to accelerate automotive and Motorsports production, reduce costs and increase car performance with 3D printing and Windform® composite materials

CRP Group along with U.S.-based partner CRP USA and Energica – the sustainable subsidiary of CRP Group and single manufacturer chosen by Dorna for the FIM Enel MotoE™ World Cup – return to CES® for the third year in a row, and they are ready to leave the attendees saying “whoa”.
From Jan 9th to Jan 12th at booth #8910, Tech East, LVCC, North Hall, Las Vegas, CES attendees could admire some examples from CRP’s technological know-how developed for the aerospace and F1, which helped Energica to be chosen by Dorna.
CRP has always distinguished itself through new technologies and innovative processes. Now CRP Group is undisputedly a world leader in CNC Machining, SLS with Windform® family of high performance composite materials and DMLS.
The CRP-derived corporate experience and business culture helped Energica develop and grow in a few years to become the first Italian manufacturer of high-performance electric motorcycles.

The Energica concept came from the eCRP 1.4, the runner-up  World Champion and European Champion electric racing motorcycle. The team made two years of racing then they started working on the road version, Energica. In 2010 CRP Group decided to invest in the new field of sustainable vehicles by creating Energica.
CRP Group acted as a technology and financial incubator, and it is still today the lead investor of Energica Motor Company S.p.A., since it has become an independent entity.
At booth #8910 will be showcasing 3D printed dashboards and seats in Windform® composite materials, manufactured for the R&D and pre-series activities of Energica EGO sportbike. This model will be used by teams that will race the FIM Enel MotoE™ World Cup in a tuned version.

The CRP Group’s know how will play a fundamental role in the development of the new bike for the FIM Enel MotoE™ World Cup: CRP Technology’s Selective Laser Sintering with Windform® composite materials, CRP Meccanica’s High Precision CNC machining and Direct Metal Laser Sintering techniques, already integrated into the Energica project, will be available to the Energica team to shorten the timing of the R&D activities in the development of the Ego tuned version.

“We are proud to have been chosen by Dorna.” Said Livia Cevolini, CEO Energica Motor Company S.p.A.
“The passion for engines is what brought us here, to build new dream vehicles right at the beating heart of speed, Modena, the Italian Motor Valley.
Our history comes from racing, our passion for this sector has never faded. FIM Enel MotoE™ World Cup is an excellent project. After all, it is what we hoped since our racing years, now it can be managed professionally thanks to Dorna and its unique and long-lasting experience.”

At booth #8910 will be also unveiled (U.S. Premiere) Tundra’s functional 3D printed prototype, and TuPOD first fully 3D printed smallsat launched by ISS.

CRP USA revolutionizes 3D printed space satellite industry

CRP USA returns to CES® for the third year in a row to rock the world of the space industry.

At CES® 2018 will be displayed TuPOD, the latest and most innovative satellite manufactured by CRP USA.
TuPOD is the first complete 3D printed satellite to be launched from the ISS, designed both as a CubeSat and as a dispensing system for two Tube Satellites.
It utilizes ground breaking carbon fiber reinforced composite material Windform® XT 2.0 supplied by CRP USA.
Windform® XT 2.0 is known for its superior mechanical properties and has passed outgassing screening at NASA so it is suitable for space applications.
As demand grows for cost effective “nanosatellites” CRP USA staff are innovating, adapting existing technologies, and pushing technological boundaries. Given that TubeSats are cylindrical in shape and not compatible with the normal CubeSats deployer platform (P-POD) on ISS, an innovative nano-satellite, TuPOD (Tubesat-POD), was developed to address the issue.
“Using Windform® XT 2.0 material in the 3D manufacturing of TuPOD was one of the best decisions we have ever made” commented Amin Djamshidpour, designer of TuPOD.  “During the prototyping phase and even during final manufacturing, we got into multiple situations were we needed to drill parts or make small modifications to the 3D printed structure, working with Windform® XT 2.0 gave us the ability to do so”.
TuPOD satellite/deployer is the result of a successful international collaboration between CRP USA (manufacturer), Teton Aerospace (Tetonsys), Morehead State University, JAXA, the TANCREDO and OSNAT teams.

Windform materials have passed outgassing tests at NASA

Windform LX2.0, Windform XT2.0, Windform GT and Windform SP have passed outgassing tests that have been carried out at NASA. The result states: Materials were tested in accordance to the ASTM E-595-07 standard and are considered passing. Thanks to the activity carried out by CRP USA, Windform materials have been submitted to outgassing tests. The aim of these tests are very important especially when materials are used in space application.

Advantages of additive manufacturing and 3D printing with Windform® materials in space

  • No design limitations. With Windform additive manufacturing and 3D printing, applications are no longer limited by design-for-manufacturing constraints
  • Complex parts production. Parts production and prototypes with undercuts, complex features and internal cavities are easily produced, either in one piece, or in multiple sections where required
  • Reduces product cycle times, lowers time to market and realizes ROI through reductions in production costs
  • Windform® produces finished beautiful parts that can additionally be plated or painted depending upon the application
  • CNC machine the Windform 3D-printed parts. There are industries such as space that require tight specifications. With CNC machining it is possible to bring tolerance down to hundredths of millimeter. Windform parts can be CNC machined with 5-axis milling centers and with lathes in order to have complex and highly accurate features.
  • Speed up the production and Save time. The combination of 3D printing and CNC machining leads to speed up the manufacturing process of the parts and save time. The additive manufacturing technology is much faster than designing and producing a tool for injection molding. Furthermore, 3D printing can give engineers more flexibility in the timeline to make design improvements.
