Energica EGO electric motorcyle’s soft seat and seat plate functional prototypes

Energica team took advantage of the support and expertise of CRP Technology to create EGO electric motorcycle’s seat and seat plate with Windform® composite materials.



                        

Description

CRP Technology swiftly created two vital prototypes by employing the PBF process and the exceptional Windform® high-performance composite materials. They harnessed the laser sintering technique along with Windform materials to craft prototypes for the soft seat and seat plate of the motorcycle components, facilitating a speedier market launch for the bike. Understanding that the comfort and aesthetics of the seats were paramount, CRP Technology opted for RL material for the seat's soft portion and GT material for the seat frame due to its remarkable durability and flexibility. The seat frame, specifically, had to possess enough strength to support the soft part bearing the rider's weight, and these two components were expertly bonded, coated, and secured with staples. CRP Technology managed the production of the fully functional 3D-printed seat and passenger seat to be used during the research and testing phases. The Energica seats consist of both a pliable seat and a sturdy seat plate. The seat plate plays a vital role as it supports the soft portion, bearing the rider's weight while ensuring flexibility to withstand the rigours of rough roads and spirited riding. Through the utilisation of advanced 3D printing technology and Windform® composite materials, the Energica team expedited the design and product development phases significantly.
