Williams Racing Announces Nexa3D Partnership
11 March 2021 | Sabina Gonzalez-George
The team here at CREAT3D are excited to announce a new partnership between Williams Racing and Nexa3D. This partnership will see the world of Formula One using the fastest polymer 3D printer.
The partnership has come into fruition following extensive consultation and applications analysis by Simon Chandler and the team at CREAT3D. As Nexa3D's UK partner, CREAT3D will be supporting both Williams Racing and Nexa3D on fully integrating the ultrafast technology at Williams.
With Nexa3D's technology, Williams Racing will be able to quickly design and manufacture complex, light weighted parts in minutes, compared to hours with traditional manufacturing, while minimising material usage and waste. The NXE400 breaks printing speed barriers with its 20x productivity through its proprietary Lubricant Sublayer Photo-curing (LSPc) technology and patented structured light matrix capable of reaching top speeds of 1Z centimetre per minute.
“Our partnership with Williams Racing represents the fusion of top-tier engineering and race car performance,” said Avi Reichental co-founder, Chairman and CEO, Nexa3D. “With its ultrafast production cycles, the NXE400 represents the Formula One of additive manufacturing at scale. Few companies appreciate speed like Williams Racing and they represent the perfect partner for our polymer 3D printing technology.”
Al Peasland, Head of Technical and Innovation Partnerships at Williams Racing said, “We’re extremely excited to announce our partnership with Nexa3D and look forward to enhancing our additive manufacturing capabilities with their innovative high-speed printing technologies. Formula One is a challenging environment, that demands a continuous improvement philosophy in order to remain competitive. Our partnership will enable the team to continue to push boundaries in 3D printing, and present new opportunities for Nexa3D to further advance their revolutionary technology.”
Simon, Managing Director of CREAT3D, added “As a life-long Williams Racing fan, it’s amazing for CREAT3D to be able to support both Williams and NEXA3D in bringing high speed Additive Manufacturing to Formula One! And we look forward to continuing to support Williams in their ongoing elite performance engineering.”
