CRP Technology has worked with Flying-Cam to construct an unmanned aerial system called SARAH (Special Aerial Response Automatic Helicopter) using additive manufacturing techniques and Windform composite materials.
CRP reveals how a section of the air intake system on the Zytek LMP1 and 2 engines produced using rapid prototyping has had a significant impact on their performance.
In this case study, CRP Technology reveals how it can support motorsport design teams with a range of technologies and engineering activities, including high-speed, high-quality CNC machining; rapid casting; ultra-rapid casting; rapid manufacturing and rapid prototyping; composite materials production; and reverse engineering.
CRP has provided a number of materials and technology services to racing teams competing in competitions including Formula One, MotoGP, the World Rally Championship, the American Le Mans Series and the Paris-to-Dakar Rally Raid.
This case study from CRP explains how rapid prototyping and rapid casting technologies have been used to optimise the lubrication system of a dry sump Formula One (F1) gearbox.
