As part of a multi-year supplier agreement, Volume Graphics will enable Renault F1 to develop their use of CT non-destructive testing, including the inspection of additive components.

Formula One racing is all about precision and the use of Volume Graphics’ solution for quality control will enable the automotive specialist to improve its processes for functional and component testing of their Formula One single seater.

So far, we already knew that Jabil is the 3D printing service provider that produces 3D printed race car parts for Renault F1. This solution is therefore likely to be integrated in-house.

As for Volume Graphics, the software company has gained extensive experience in the different ways software can improve an AM production workflow, especially when it comes to rapid tooling. As a reminder, its software reveals flaws that may be invisible to the naked eye, comparing as-manufactured parts to their original designs and simulating the performance of part geometries to guide design and/or manufacturing corrections. 

"Safety and reliability cannot be negotiated in our world and this new partnership gives us the confidence we need to push the boundaries of innovation in both chassis and engine design," says Nick Chester, Chassis Technical Director at Renault F1 Team. “Having Volume Graphics alongside us creates a dynamic approach to projects relating to non-destructive testing and metrology processes within Renault F1 Team."

VGSTUDIO MAX

With VGSTUDIO MAX, Volume Graphics offers companies a comprehensive solution for quality control in additive manufacturing. The software identifies the most important 3D printing defects, no matter how complex the shape may be. Users can analyse raw materials such as powders, check the melt pool environment and compare it with CT data, and perform both dimensional metrology and defect analysis on and in the finished part.

"Industrial CT is perfect for quality control in additive manufacturing. No matter how complex the shape may be, with CT and Volume Graphics software, users can inspect their additive-manufactured components comprehensively. Our VGSTUDIO MAX software is the tool for measuring part geometry and checking for internal defects to ensure quality and safety in additive manufacturing and establish efficient workflows", explains Karl-Michael Nigge, Chief Product Officer at Volume Graphics.

Volume Graphics will be presenting its comprehensive solution for quality control in additive manufacturing at Formnext 2019, from November 19th to 22nd 2019 in Frankfurt am Main, Hall 12.1, Booth E79.

You can now post free of charge job opportunities in the AM Industry on 3D ADEPT Media.
