The WEEN supports a students team at the international competition
The official classification of The Formula SAE Italy & Formula Electric Italy 2013 took place in Italy at the famous Riccardo Paletti Circuit.
For several years, WEEN™ has been supporting the students team Formula Hybrid MADI, that considers taking part at the competition as an important phase of the team growth.
According to the team layouts the WEEN engineers elaborated complicated technical units, CVDs (constant velocity drives) that allowed to simplify the construction, to improve the composition and to enhance reliability of the transmission. Instead of a spline piece, a driven sprocket flange for electric motor was used. The WEEN's CVDs proved themselves by demonstrating their best characteristics under complicated racing conditions. It would have been difficult for us to find such an elegant solution for the racing car new unit without WEEN's help.
The Formula Hybrid MADI head stated:
The partnership with the WEEN is very important for us. We are really attracted by their balanced constructive approach, by the company's sincere desire to support engineering colleges and to stimulate engineers’ training. At the moment we are working on the brake blocks and brake pads. The WEEN™ engineers started a meticulous work of selection of the braking pads with the highest friction qualities for this particular series. The security and braking performance are also important to us, but it can only be achieved by the simultaneous system selection "plate - support - braking pad". The braking system is one of the key units of a racing car, and we are sure that WEEN H&H B.V. will find an excellent solution".
