For nearly 30 years, Stratasys has been a defining force and dominant player in 3D printing and additive manufacturing – shaping the way things are made.
The company’s groundbreaking solutions provide customers with a new level of design freedom and manufacturing flexibility – reducing time-to-market, lowering development costs, and improving product design and functionality.
Years of working with the world’s leading automotive companies have now culminated in Stratasys partnering with the leader in high performance automotive technology to become Official Supplier of 3D Printing Solutions to the McLaren Formula 1 team. Stratasys is providing PolyJet and FDM-based additive manufacturing equipment and materials for a new on-site Stratasys 3D printing center at McLaren Racing.
Stratasys solutions empower motorsports and automotive designers and engineers in three key areas:
- Rapid prototyping – producing functional models of parts for concept modelling, design verification and functional performance to evaluate designs and improve functionality before manufacturing
- Manufacturing tooling – developing light-weight, customized assembly tools, high temperature composite lay-up molds and sacrificial tooling, and a broad array of highly functional jigs and fixtures on demand
- Low volume customized production parts – 3D printing final automotive parts in durable thermoplastics, eliminating the expense of tooling, set-ups and change overs to save up to 90% in time and manufacturing costs
