BLM GROUP Sponsors Penn State SAE Formula One Race Team

BLM GROUP USA, a global manufacturer of tube and flat sheet processing solutions, announced that it is a Diamond Level sponsor of the 2019 Penn State Racing Formula SAE team. This is the second year the company has sponsored Penn State as part of the SAE International Collegiate Design Series competitions.

The Penn State vehicle features a combination chassis featuring a composite monocoque and half-steel sub-frame. BLM has provided 37 profile tubing components for welding and fabrication of the steel sub-frame assembly as well as the roll hoops. BLM cut and bent the pieces from four 4130-series steel tubes to the team specifications with parts varying in size from 2" motor mounts to 7' length pieces with bends of up to 75°. The cutting operation was performed using BLM's LC5 Lasertube at the company's Novi, MI, Tech Center.

"Sponsors such as BLM are critical to helping out our team as we do not have access to the machines and equipment required to fabricate all the vehicle components," said Brock Hinton, Manufacturing Lead for the Penn State team. "We really value the money and time they invest in us, as well as the quality of the product they provide."

"We are pleased to be able to support hands-on projects such as these," said Mauro Corno, President and COO. "Giving these students the chance to take a vehicle from design to manufacture, build and test gives them some invaluable real-world experience as well as the excitement of competition."

The Penn State SAE Formula One car ranked in the top 30 out of over 120 vehicles last year. At this competition, teams from all over the world are judged in both static and dynamic events including cost, design, business, acceleration, autocross and a grueling endurance race.
