Don Schumacher Racing to use Stratasys 3D Printing technologies for high-demanding environments
If you are a real enthusiast of racing cars, then you must know Don Schumacher Racing, the legendary winning team in NHRA Drag Racing history. The Indiana-based company DSR fields seven professional teams competing in the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing series.
We have just learned that the company has joined the list of Stratasys customers in order to become more competitive in high-performance environments such as auto sports, yacht racing, aerospace and competitive winter games. In such type of environments, the same choice had already been made by Andretti Autosports and Team Penske.
As Pat Carey, Senior Vice President at Stratasys states: “Competitive motorsports demand technology that can not only handle the design complexity of these environments, but also rapidly create prototypes and parts to withstand the high-performance requirements of racing.”
We might expect applications such as chassis or weldment fixturing, prototype development, final design proof-of-concept, and finished ultralight usable components.
“With Stratasys 3D printing in place, anytime a crew chief has an idea for a project or concept part, we can design it, print it out, and test fit and function rapidly at a low cost – whether it’s a prototype or final part,” said Scott Cutler, Senior Manufacturing Engineer, Don Schumacher Motorsports. “Thanks to 3D printing, we’re able to be more innovative – which equals consistent performance on the track.”
