(StratasysBlog) Stratasys is supplying McLaren Racing Formula 1® team with a suite of 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions. Stratasys will work closely with the Formula 1 team as it ramps up its rapid manufacturing capacity.
Formula 1® cars race at very high speeds – up to 227 mph (365 km/h)– utilizing power units that reach a maximum of 15,000 revolutions per minute (RPM). The cars are capable of amazing feats, things like lateral acceleration, and the creation of so much downforce they can rip manhole covers off the ground or drive upside down on the ceiling of a tunnel. Eric Boullier, of McLaren Racing recently stated, “It has become clear that motorsport’s reliance on rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing, and the ability to radically cut time to market, is increasing.”
