Durable Parts that Withstand Tough Conditions on the Racetrack

Solve Your Powertrain and Engine Area Challenges

  • duraform pa sls ductings
  • Rapid Iteration

    Time is a critical constraint for motorsports teams. Design, testing, and iteration must be completed rapidly to meet race schedule demands and compete with other high-performance teams. Producing parts in hours shortens that cycle significantly and frees up other valuable resources.

  • Design Degrees of Freedom

    Additive manufacturing allows teams to develop optimized propulsion and control systems with greater complexity. Whereas traditional manufacturing methods and constraints limit engineers’ ability to design at the next level, additive manufacturing can bring almost any design, no matter its complexity, to life.

  • Packaging Space Versus Performance

    Packaging space is limited in the engine compartment; trade-offs between the functionality of structural housings, the delivery of fluid and energy components, and the packaging volume are therefore common. However, compromise is no longer necessary as parts that have fit and high function can be produced with our additive manufacturing solutions.

  • Harsh Packaging Environment

    The engine and powertrain area is packaged in extremely challenging environments with high temperatures, chemical exposure, and severe vibrations. Materials such as metals and plastics that can withstand these stresses are needed to maintain exceptional performance.

  • Elan Motorsports 3D Printed SLS Manifold

    Additive Manufactured Manifold Propels Indy Racecar

    Elan Motorsports had fuel vent manifolds for use in a methanol fuel tank produced with 3D Systems SLS technology and benefited from post-processing know-how to run the part in several race car bodies. The result was a much faster innovation to track.
