Williams F1 enter technical partnership with EOS

EOS, the global technology and quality leader for high-end solutions in Additive Manufacturing (AM), is pleased to announce that they have entered a technical partnership with Williams Grand Prix Engineering and Williams Advanced Engineering. The partnership aims at providing Williams with direct and high level insights into the latest AM technologies offered by EOS to complement their existing manufacturing processes, and to support their own AM development project. At the same time both companies will jointly demonstrate Additive Manufacturing within the world of Formula One.

Williams already owns two polymer EOS systems. As their standard production materials the company uses Alumide and Carbonmide from EOS. Alumide is predominantly used to create stable parts for functional testing, ranging from engine ancillaries and complete gearbox assemblies for mock-ups to jigs and fixtures for laminate production. Carbonmide at Williams is being used for production parts on Formula One cars in conjunction with carbon composite laminates where improved strength is required.

As part of the current agreement, Williams with the EOSINT P 760 has just installed a highly productive, modular plastic additive manufacturing system with a large building volume of 700 mm x 380 mm x 580 mm for the Additive Manufacturing of polymer parts that offers expanded productivity and part size.

Stuart Jackson, Regional Manager at EOS for the UK adds: “The partnership will allow EOS and Williams to jointly expose selected customers to the world of Formula One with the aim of illustrating the use of AM in this technically advanced industry. Through its Williams Advanced Engineering business, Williams provides technical innovation that transfers Formula One technology solutions focusing on sustainability and energy efficiency to mainstream industries such as automotive, motorsport, transport, energy and other sectors. As such, the partnership is a perfect fit for us as we truly believe that all parties involved will highly benefit from this interchange of ideas.”
