Simplified implementation of lightweight structures
Simplified implementation of integrated functionality
Drastically reduced lead time, faster iterations
Faster, lighter – and always safe: these are the requirements of motor sports development. For decades, EOS has been working with customers to exploit new potential using industrial 3D printing.
Besides precisely defined functional properties, low weight and high strength count the most. There are similar requirements on the choice of manufacturing technology: it needs to allow innovative and often unusual designs. It must allow parts and their variants to be manufactured quickly, with minimal effort and cost.
Williams Martini Racing was looking for a simple, fast and cost-efficient solution to build design prototypes for the front wing of their Formula 1 race car. Additive manufacturing by EOS offered the perfect complement to their development and manufacturing processes. With the EOSINT P 760, the team succeeded in building various iterations, as well as lower costs thanks to reduced production times.
EOS has the experience and professionalism that our employees display everyday at work. We’re not just a racing team, we’re also an engineering company. All of our products and race cars are based on technically advanced decisions. The same is true at EOS.
Pankl Racing Systems is a systems supplier for motor sports, high-performance vehicles, and the aviation industry.
Making complex lightweight components quickly without compromising on safety is one of the challenges faced by the company. With additive manufacturing solutions by EOS, the Austrian company has successfully realized various iterations of topology-optimized motor sports parts.
Whether you need to build a lightweight, compact battery container with integrated cable and cooling channels for an electric race car or develop a lightweight but highly rigid wheel carrier: Formula Student takes advantage of additive manufacturing to accomplish leading innovations.
