Assembly

Now that we finished the production of the body of our solar car, we are ready for the next phase of the project: the assembly. This means that all the electronic and mechanical parts get their own unique spot in the car. Until now this was only virtual reality on our computer screens. In this 3D environment, we were able to fit all the parts and adjust them when needed to avoid getting unpleasant surprises in the future.

The assembly takes place at our main partner Punch Powertrain in Sint-Truiden. We installed a fully functional workshop there to spend all of our time in the next month. We can count on their support and sympathy and we get a lot of attention from curious workers.

First of all we will install as much electronics as possible and provide the car with cables. In the meanwhile the first self-designed mechanical parts will arrive and the preassembly of the suspension will start. Then finally all of the other parts will be assembled in a very short period. It is going to be a busy but very interesting period because soon we will have a car that drives!
