Partnership Brings AM to Formula 1



McLaren Racing and Stratasys have announced a new four-year partnership under which Stratasys will supply McLaren Racing with a suite of 3-D printing and additive manufacturing (AM) solutions as the Official Supplier of 3-D Printing Solutions to the McLaren-Honda Formula 1 team.

Stratasys will work closely with the grand prix outfit as it ramps up its rapid manufacturing capacity at the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, UK.

Under the agreement, Stratasys will supply McLaren Racing with its latest FDM and PolyJet based 3-D printing solutions and materials for visual and functional prototyping, production tooling including composite tooling and customized production parts - enabling their accelerated delivery while increasing performance and productivity in design and manufacturing operations.

Stratasys CEO Ilan Levin said: "We are delighted to be working with such a visionary partner. McLaren Racing will be leveraging our nearly 30 years of 3-D printing and AM experience to stay at the forefront of motorsport technological development. Stratasys will also gain invaluable feedback and insights from working with ultra-high performance automotive applications, which we can then apply to our mainstream automotive and aerospace customers. Equally, McLaren Racing will benefit from the superior productivity, engineering precision and wide gamut of materials that come with our 3-D printing solutions."

Eric Boullier, Racing Director of McLaren Racing, said: "The ability to rapidly model, build and evaluate new components is an invaluable asset for any fast-moving and dynamic racing organization. Our new partnership with Stratasys will not only increase our output in that area, but also allow us to dynamically explore and utilize the cutting-edge of Stratasys' new 3-D printing innovations and solutions. It has become clear that motorsport's reliance on rapid prototyping and AM, and the ability to radically cut time to market, is increasing, and we look to being well served by our new alliance with Stratasys."
