April 12--EOS has joined MotoCzysz, a new and innovative motorcycle company, as a technical partner. EOS joins companies like Michelin, Elf Lubricants, Ricardo, Magneti Marelli, Ohlins, and BlackStone Tek in supporting the development efforts of MotoCzysz to bring its C1 motorcycle to the world racing stage.
MotoCzysz utilizes EOS' laser sintering process for rapid manufacturing of prototypes and functional components. The technology, which EOS says significantly reduces the lead times of traditional manufacturing methods, enables MotoCzysz's development team to go directly from 3D computer data to finished parts in as little as one day. With only months to go before the second generation C1 is unveiled, the rapid response of the EOS technology is critical in designing and testing engineering concepts, the company reports.
According to Federico Cioni, president of MotoCzysz, "Without the EOS technology, it would be difficult and extremely time consuming to make some of our ideas and design concepts a reality within our stringent time frames."
Following development of the second generation C1, EOS will support the production of the racer with its ability to decrease the time to make race-ready components. MotoCzysz will use the laser sintering machine to accelerate investment casting of complex C1 parts and in the future will lean heavily on the technology for the direct production off high strength, lightweight titanium components.
