Professional MotorSport World Expo, Europe’s premier motorsport engineering event, will return to Cologne next week. For the first time in two years, the continent’s racing industry will have a much-needed opportunity to network in person once again. Running from November 10-12 at the Koelnmesse, the expo will be packed with the latest products for professional race teams and constructors.
Over 100 exhibitors will be displaying an array of solutions, from advanced simulation tools and manufacturing technology through to components and safety equipment. Seminars and presentations are set to run throughout the event presenting current and future engineering developments from a host of industry leaders.
In addition to the various products and services on display, a variety of technical seminars will take place covering subjects as diverse as the use of machine learning for performance optimization through to the use of the latest bio-composite materials in racing.
Various exhibitors are due to debut their newest kit. For example, GF Casting Solutions (booth 6048) will be demonstrating the capabilities of additive manufacturing (AM), and displaying a functional 3D-printed turbocharger housing produced from Inconel 718. With AM technology truly coming of age in recent years, GF’s turbocharger highlights the added design freedom the process affords compared with traditional manufacturing methods.
A host of other suppliers will also be previewing their freshest components. These include companies such as M.E.RIN (booth 3006), which has developed a new fuel tank system that does away with the need for complex surge and collector tank systems, while ensuring every last drop of fuel is used. With electrified motorsport on the rise, transmission specialist Hewland Engineering (booth 4050) will be showing off its impressive 400kW e-axle system. Developed in conjunction with Integral Powertrain, the axle is a drop-in solution for electrification.
Staying with the electrified theme, companies such as MagElec Propulsion (booth 4053) – supplier to the Pure ETCR series, and Cascadia Motion (booth 4074 and 6074) will be highlighting their cutting-edge powertrain solutions. Meanwhile BrightLoop Converters (booth 5057) is to present its range of lightweight DC-DC converters which harness GaN semiconductor technology and are used extensively in Formula E and other series.
Furthermore, a series of informative seminars and presentations, covering subjects as diverse as the use of AI for performance simulation through to current developments in transmission and powertrain technology, are free to attend.
