Case Study – Eplus3D: Metal 3D Printed Racing Car Wheel Carrier

In racing, every millisecond counts to be the first to cross the finish line. The Delta Racing Team of Mannheim University of Applied Sciences therefore optimizes their racing car for the Formula Student Electric every year.

The biggest improvement of the chassis this year is the production technology switch to additively manufactured wheel carriers and the benefits that come along with it.

The most accurate numerical calculation methods, a topology- and production-optimized design, as well as the printing of the aluminum component on Eplus3D’s EP-M250Pro, can achieve a weight saving of over 50% and thus an extraordinary increase of performance of the whole car compared to with the previous CNC-milled component.
