Composite Wheel Rim’s Mold manufacturing

For the development of their e-racing car, the EPFL racing team are manufacturing their own wheel’s rims out of composite material. For laminating and curing of the composite, they have designed a two parts mold out of epoxy tooling block. The Countdown Company supported the team in the machining of the mold according to their design.
