CONGRATULATIONS TO THE UPC ECORACING TEAM
Upon the conclusion of the 2015-2016 season, the UPC ecoRacing team, with whom Addendum have collaborated since the beginning, has entered into the TOP 10 world ranking of electric single-seat racing cars, maintaining its status as the best team in the country.
After participating in three of the most important competitions in Europe, held at the Silverstone (United Kingdom), Hockenheim (Germany), and Montmeló (Spain) circuits, UPC ecoRacing began the 2016-2017 season with the ambitious objective of competing in another continent. The team travelled to Melbourne, Australia, where they competed with top teams from countries like Japan, Singapore, New Zealand, Tasmania and Australia. Addendum’s favourite vehicle, the result of the enormous effort of all its members, surpassed all these other teams: both in static trials and in engineering, where the team has to justify to the judges the design of the car, among other things, with UPC ecoRacing obtaining the number 1 spot in the Design trial, and 3rd in the Business Plan category.
At the dynamic events, one of the most important challenges in the Australian competition, the ecoRZ had to compete in all of the trials, showing its reliability and high performance. The team surpassed with flying colours in all of the trials, obtaining 3rd place in both the acceleration and efficiency trials.
With all of these successes, the team achieved 1st place in the general classification of electric vehicles.
So now the team begins the 2016/2017 season following the series of aforementioned successes. UPC ecoRacing have achieved unprecedented success in Europe, being the first team to run in Australia and win the competition. Addendum congratulate the team and are grateful for the opportunity to collaborate in this great experience of technological innovation.
HIGHER PRODUCTION CAPACITY
Addendum has recently increased its production capacity through the acquisition and operational launch of the new LIEBHERR LC380 gear hobbing machine, with automated parts loading.

This machine allows us to cut high quality splines on cylindrical and helical gears at very competitive prices. It also allows for the production of gears for any market application in medium and long batches; although its flexibility and ease of setup and handlingmean it can also produce quality parts in small batchescompetitively.
ADDENDUM COLLABORATES WITH UPC ECORACING ASSOCIATION
As we have already seen in recent years, Addendum actively collaborates with the UPC (Polytechnic University of Catalonia), whether it be in training, research or development of new projects...
This year we have participated in the successful UPC ecoRacing project with the industrial engineering students at ETSEIAT (Terrassa School of Higher Learning in Industrial and Aeronautical Engineering) This technological research project within the sphere of sustainable automation has for years been focused on designing single- seater cars to participate in Formula Student events.
The ecoRZ (2015) model is a 100% electric model that has reduced space, respect for previous models, but maintains the 135 CV so as to improve on dynamic performance and energy efficiency. It can run at 135 km/h and reaches 100 km/h in three seconds.
Addendum has contributed to the manufacturing of the special gears for the transmission of the magnificent single-seater ecoRZ, which has participated in the Formula Student Spain, within the Montmeló Circuit. At this competition, the team has received the prize for best car at the “Cost and Manufacturing” trial, received very high scores for its Business Plan and first place for its status in static trials!
Given all of the above, we wish to congratulate the group for all of the work done, and hope the group achieves magnificent results at the next competition, the Formula SAE Italy. We are also cheering for the group for this passionate work involving research and development of projects that are sustainable and keep in mind the training of future entrepreneur engineers.
OUR RECENT FACILITY UPGRADE
Since Addendum first started in the business of gear manufacturing over 50 years ago, the company has steadily pursued the goal of instituting the finest work and production practices. To that end, we have consistently kept close watch of industry developments in order to apply new and proven techniques to our business, and thus improve day by day.
In consonance with this vision, inspired by the 5S method, we recently upgraded our facilities by paving our shop floors with a high strength resin, yielding greater cleanliness and order, as well as workplace safety and security, thus bettering the working environment while simultaneously improving production.
ISO 9001-2008 RECERTIFICATION
Addendum recently renewed its ISO 9001-2008 certification in the Design and manufacture of gears, transmission systems and precision mechanical components, which was originally obtained in 2008, and later renewed and expanded to the area of design in 2011.
The process of renewing this certificate every three years is a requirement for certification, to which Addendum has a steady commitment as a key strategic element for the company, in order to ensure proper quality in management as well as products and services offered.
Certification is valid until 2017 and can be consulted below or through the link at the top right of this website.

H2OPTIMA WATER PURIFIER MAKES “LA VANGUARDIA” HEADLINES
The H2Optima water purifier is an autonomous and portable device designed to produce drinking water for human and agricultural use from seawater, salt water or contaminated fresh water, needing no external power supply, since it is equipped with photovoltaic panels.
The “La Vanguardia” newspaper published the story in both its paper and digital version, highlighting the possibilities of the device: production capacity, ease of installation and use, and its evident advantages in the developing world and in agriculture.
Readers of this news praised the idea and the potential of the device with their comments. They also urged companies like ours to invest in innovation, with the aim of creating jobs, international competitiveness and better sustainability for the planet.
