Sahara Force India Formula One Team has signed a new technical partnership with 3D Systems Corporation, a leading supplier of 3D content-to-print solutions. The multi-year deal strengthens the relationship between the two organisations allowing Sahara Force India to fully exploit its existing 3D Systems machinery and reduce the manufacturing time of wind tunnel model components.
Dr Vijay Mallya, Team Principal and Managing Director of Sahara Force India: “We’ve been working with 3D systems as a customer for many years, so we are delighted to forge stronger links with a company that is the market-leader for rapid prototyping technology. We use their technology on a daily basis to manufacture wind tunnel model components and this new relationship will hopefully allow us to get performance to the car faster.”
“We are excited to launch this technical partnership with the first ever Indian Formula One team,” said Kevin McAlea, Senior Vice President and General Manager of 3D Production Printers, 3D Systems. “The opportunity to partner with emerging innovators like Sahara Force India provides tangible customer benefits that extend well beyond motorsports.”
