Williams F1 Gears Up for Next Racing Season with EOS Metal 3D Printing
The last Formula 1 season, which has just come to a close, said that Mercedes is still the Constructor team to beat, with Ferrari trailing behind, but getting closer. In this scene, Williams F1 is the third best team with its drivers coming in fifth and sixth in the yearly GP standings. According to unofficial sources, Mercedes is the team that makes the most intensive use of 3D printing, with Ferrari rapidly growing in this segment, as well. Not to risk falling behind, Williams F1 has just signed a deal with EOS to further increment the adoption of 3D printing technologies in its existing advanced manufacturing processes.
Following the installation of a new EOSINT 760 3D printer, EOS announced that they have entered a three-year technical partnership with Williams Grand Prix Engineering and Williams Advanced Engineering. The partnership will provide Williams with direct insights into the latest AM technologies offered by EOS and it will serve both companies to jointly demonstrate the efficiency of Additive Manufacturing within the world of Formula One.
