Josè Antonio Almenara, AM Specialist
Automotive and EV indystry are experiencing a new renaissance, which is driving engineers to find innovative, cost-effective solutions using 3D printing. The paper describes the application of Windform® reinforced composite materials in the construction of several 3D printed functional parts for Automotive, EV.
The development of Energica's supersport electric motorcycles will be also discussed.
The session also investigates why 3D printed parts in Windform® materials allow for integration of electrics and electronics; pros & cons of 3D printing in the EV and Automotive industries; future potential uses of 3D printing in the design and construction of EV and Automotive components.
