University of Canterbury Motorsport (UCM)

Greenstage is proud to be supporting the University of Canterbury Motorsport team with their first full electric entry in the Formula SAE competition.  They have put together a beast of a car which is looking likely to do the business!

UCM's 2016 Formula SAE entry 
Earlier in the year Greenstage provided advice on battery pack building and the UCM team paid a few visits to make use of our Myachi Unitech battery welder (which we use for nickle or copper foil welding during pack building with 18650 or 26650 cells).

The engineering skills and quick iterations and improvements in the UCM pack designs were impressive.

It's pleasing to see these skills and capabilities being fostered by University of Canterbury.  I would strongly recommend any budding Engineering student to get involved in a Formula SAE team if they get the chance (especially if it's electric).

Good luck to the UCM team as they head into the competition phase!

Great info! I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have.
