With 3D printing to the top of Formula Student

Headmade Materials GmbH, inventor of the metal 3D-printing technology Cold Metal Fusion ('Metal SLS'), supports the racing team of the University of Applied Sciences Esslingen in improving the racing car 'Stallardo 21' for Formula Student.

Every year, the Esslingen racing team develops a vehicle for participation in the international Formula Student competition. For the current model 'Stallardo 21', Headmade Materials has produced an oil-air separator using its own Cold Metal Fusion ('Metal SLS') 3D-printing technology as part of a sponsorship.

The oil-air separator is made of the Titanium alloy Ti6Al4V in order to still achieve a low weight with high load capacity. The interior of the part consists of a complex and optimized helix structure to achieve maximum racing performance. Further features, such as the connection thread, could be integrated via the process without reworking.

We are proud sponsor and hope our contribution to the 'Stallardo 21' brings the last tenth of seconds to racing success! We wish the Rennstall Esslingen team much success in the upcoming racing season.
