DIGITAL INNOVATION DAY KEONYS - Interview SPARK RACING TECHNOLOGY

KEONYS assists Spark Racing Technology with the design of Formula E racing cars

[PRESS RELEASE]

 

KEONYS, a European partner for Product Lifecycle Management and 3D solutions, is supporting Spark Racing Technology with its digital transformation in order to meet its future technological challenges.

Using Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform, Spark Racing Technology, a company specialized in the design and construction of electric and hybrid systems, successfully responded to a call for tenders issued by the International Automobile Federation (FIA). The aim was to supply electric single-seaters for the first Formula E world championship.

 

Cutting-edge technology with 3DEXPERIENCE platform 

Formed in 2012, Spark Racing Technology was named as the FIA’s exclusive supplier for fully electric racing cars. It handled the design, development and production of 40 electric single-seaters. As the world’s first electric racing car, the main technological challenge was the complete innovation of the powertrain.  Spark Racing Technology developed it entirely using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

 “It was a major industrial challenge and we were looking for a digital solution that could offer both technological innovation and skills development for our employees.  KEONYS’ teams assisted us with the deployment and customization of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, in particular for the integration of our specific design processes,” explains Théophile Gouzin, President and Technical Director of Spark Racing Technology.

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform stands out as it brings together all of Dassault Systèmes’ products with an unbroken digital chain and in a single shared environment.

To help Spark Racing Technology increase its productivity, we deployed 3DEXPERIENCE while integrating all of the company’s processes. The company’s technical teams are now using the platform from the design office to the workshop, and the solution evolves as new needs are expressed, whether in terms of the development of new uses or collaboration with new teams,” adds Martin Grunau, COO of KEONYS.

The Formula E world championship takes place in major world cities, such as Beijing, Los Angeles, London and Paris. This technological showcase demonstrates Spark Racing Technology’s expertise in the design and construction of hybrid and electric systems.

 “3DEXPERIENCE meets our needs, both in terms of robust CAD tools and collaboration between various users. We are currently the only manufacturer of electric racing cars and our aim is to remain one step ahead. We firmly believe that 3DEXPERIENCE will help us conquer new markets, both in France and internationally,” concludes Théophile Gouzin.
