Racing Exhaust System Development

Etap has over 25 years of experience in development and research on motor racing exhausts. We can create an optimally balanced exhaust system designed for mid and top-end power from your engine. We also perfect the exhaust sound to make beautiful music

Robot Welding Jigs and Tool Development

We specialize in the development of robot welding jigs and tools with many years of MIG/MAG TIG welding process experience. We focus on high precision TIG welding in stainless steel, aluminum and titanium.

Sheet and Tube Parts Development

We design and build parts for the automotive and motorcycle industries. Our design, development and production knowledge comes from 25 years of experience. We can support all type of tools and jigs for your production needs.

Our Goal is the Design and Production of the Best Products Money Can Buy

We do all our own design and development in house. We specialize in developing welding tools for robotics and develop/optimize tools for robot welding. We are further specialized in TIG welding as well as all tools necessary for any kind of MIG/MAG procedures, spot and resistance welding. Our passion for the finest welding extends to our automobile and motorcycle exhaust systems, where performance, beauty and sound are important.

Pictured here, our client relies on our expertise. His bike is one of the most powerful on the grid.

Many of our clients are motorbike and car enthusiasts. They want unique and custom-made exhausts that look and perform flawlessly. Something they will not see anywhere else.

We take great care that the sound of the exhaust is perfect while helping the motor produce its maximum power. At Etap we focus on form and function to create unique products that buyers love.

Ducati Desmosedici
BMW S 1000 RR
Our perfectly developed exhaust systems extract maximum power, sound like angels singing and our buyers say they look like custom jewelry.
All our racing systems are improved by thorough dynamometer testing. We optimize the fuel and air mixture by flashing the ECU for the best power, control of mid and top range and smooth delivery throughout the rev range.

HONDA Civic Type R
Our dyno chart tells the story. Here we compare a stock exhaust system with our full racing system. This graph is from a Honda Civic type R 2006. The system was designed for hill climb races.
The development of robot welding tools and jigs is one of most demanding aspects of our work. A complete understanding of the product and process is required to allow for perfect welding. We focus not only on the welding but design and plan to eliminate after-welding deformations. We design our tools to adjust for these potential deformations. This is knowledge that comes from over 25 years experience.

Office Autodesk Inventor Professional
All our development is done using the latest Autodesk Inventor Professional software. We use this to develop parts by 3D modeling for sheet metal and tube construction as are used in most of projects. Contact us to discuss your next project.

Our ETAP racing exhaust systems are developed from scratch and never copy other competitor’s systems. That is why our systems are unique and offer the best performance you can get anywhere. We do full testing and optimization after the system is complete and make sure it is the best it can be and safe to use.

Only perfection is good enough to win the race.
