3rd Dimension Industrial 3D Printing, a US-based metal additive manufacturing company, has ordered a MetalFAB1 system from Additive Industries to make large parts for Formula 1.
According to Additive Industries, the technology will allow 3rd Dimension to build larger parts in the largest symmetrical build volume commercially available in the market today.
‘As we have moved into full scale production, we have realized the need for drastically faster additive equipment and the Additive Industries four laser system provides the solution our customers need,’ said Bob Markley, president and CEO of 3rd Dimension Industrial 3D Printing Co. ‘Much of our team comes from the racing industry with wins at the Indy 500, 24h of LeMans, and multiple championships. The approach developed in racing to reach an optimum solution in minimal time has been a key to our success.’
