Jabil, Renault F1 racing team enter additive manufacturing agreement
The Renault F1 team will be using Jabil's certified materials, processes, and additive manufacturing machines to boost parts availability and overall productivity.
Jabil (St. Petersburg, FL) and the Renault F1 (Formula 1) racing team have entered an additive manufacturing (also known as 3D printing) agreement to speed the development and delivery of 3D-printed racecar parts for the Renault R.S.19, competing in the 2019 Formula One World Championship.
An early adopter of additive manufacturing, Renault F1 Team continually seeks opportunities to produce racecar parts quickly and economically while reducing vehicle weight and without compromising part strength or integrity. The team will be using Jabil's certified materials, processes, and machines to boost parts availability and overall productivity, says Antoine Magnan, head of partnerships for Renault Sport Racing.
Recent expansions to the Jabil Additive Manufacturing Network are designed to address the 3D printing needs of highly regulated industries. Additional 3D printing capacity has been added to Jabil’s manufacturing facility in Auburn Hills, MI to support expanding automotive and healthcare applications. The facility, which is ISO 13485-certified, offers customers access to machines for high-speed sintering, selective laser sintering, and fused filament fabrication.
At Jabil’s AS9100-certified facility in Seattle, WA, aerospace and defense customers will benefit from the company's manufacturing offerings, supply chain orchestration, and strict quality control processes. The company now has more than 200 3D printers at facilities connected to the Jabil Additive Manufacturing Network, spanning sites in the United States, China, Hungary, Mexico, Singapore, and Spain.
