Mjøs Metallvarefabrikk AS looks at sponsoring Revolve NTNU as a great opportunity to support technological development, and to participate in creating an ever more impressive race car. The journey taken on by a new team of students each year, truly correlates to their own mission - putting theory into practice.
Since they started working with Revolve NTNU in 2018, they’ve almost made it a tradition to machine our rim centers. During the 2020 season they also took upon us the challenge to machine their new aluminium uprights, and for the 2021 as well as the 2022 season they machined our new rim centers, which also functions as the hub for our gearbox. This season they are machining a re-designed version of last years rim center, which will make more space for the brake system, and house new sturdier wheel bearings.
Revolve NTNU is always impressed with the parts Mjøs Metallvarefabrikk AS delivers, and are thankful for the complex machining expertise they bring to the project, which enables us to push boundaries and increase the performance of our racecar.
