Welding is continuing and our hard design work is paying off. The battery box frame fits like a glove under the cover!
The first layer of our battery enclosure has been welded! This will be the base level for the box that holds the batteries in the back of the Mooventure. The jig for the second layer is set up and welding has begun!
Rendered images of our method of mounting our motor into the front of the car looks great! Final FEA is ongoing and ordering/fabrication will happen once the design is finalized.
A Mover and Shaker Award was given this week to Forrest Hawkinson! This award is given to team members who go above and beyond on their work for the team. Forrest is the design lead for mounting the motor in the Mooventure. Keep up the good work!
Rough cuts of aluminum tubes have been made for our battery enclosure! This is the first step of the fabrication process. Next the 44 aluminum tubes will be milled to the correct dimensions before they are welded together!
Another big step towards getting the Mooventure moving occurred this week, the battery enclosure was picked up from our friends at Engineered Metal Products. This aluminum case will house the battery in the trunk of the Mooventure. We would like to thank EMP for doing such a great job on this crucial part and for their continued support of our team.
We had a blast talking to people about what we do at The Wisconsin Corn and Soy Expo in the Wisconsin Dells last week. We shared our booth with the other Wisconsin SAE teams including @wisconsinracing whose car was on display! A big thank you to The Wisconsin Corn Promotion Board and The United Wisconsin Grain Producers for supporting our team.
