Unveiling of Formula Race Car

Posted on: May 15th, 2014 by The Technology House

Recently, the University of Akron’s Formula SAE Racing team unveiled this year’s competition car. This year’s formula race car is known as the ZR14. We helped the team throughout the year by 3D printing and casting various car components. We made approximately 2 dozen parts that were used for the car’s intake manifold, heel rest, and clutch handle and mount.

The 3D Printing parts we provided allowed the team to produce “one off” production pieces. We worked hand in hand with the team in order to determine the best processes and materials to meet their specific needs. The team was able to produce parts with intricate geometry at a faster rate than other manufacturing processes. The team was also able to use the parts to fit check their designs, determine ways to reduce component weight, and improve overall manufacturing efficiency.

The team is currently ranked 8th in the world. We wish them the best of luck on this year’s races!
