Stratasys Signs Agreement with Arrow Schmidt Peterson Motorsports

Arrow Schmidt Peterson Motorsports is part of an elite group of professional racing teams empowered by Stratasys 3D printing to raise their level of competition.

The Stratasys F450mc 3D printer helps designers create functional prototypes, product components and rugged tools matching demands for strength and stiffness of carbon-filled composite materials.

Stratasys has signed an agreement with Arrow Schmidt Peterson Motorsports, a competitor in the NTT IndyCar Series. The team is leveraging Stratasys' Fortus 450mc 3D printer - capable of printing carbon fiber-reinforced FDM Nylon 12 - and F370 3D printer as key pieces of its manufacturing process.

Arrow SPM is part of a group of professional racing teams empowered by Stratasys' additive manufacturing (AM). Integrating 3D printing technology to raise the level of competition, these customers maximize Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) technology to match the extreme demands of high-performance environments. Stratasys' engineering-grade 3D printers and materials are suitable for building advanced conceptual models, functional prototypes, manufacturing tools and production parts.

The Fortus 450mc 3D printer offers FDM Nylon 12 Carbon Fiber and ASA materials. This technology is aimed at creating functional prototypes, product components and rugged tooling that match demands for strength and stiffness of carbon-filled composite material. Designed with ease-of-use, the solution can deliver enhanced accuracy and engineering-grade, repeatable production.

"Competitive racing is the ideal test track to demonstrate the power of FDM technology," said Pat Carey, Senior Vice President at Stratasys. "As racing teams consistently push the boundaries of innovation, the larger automotive and aerospace industries are taking notice. We are pleased to prove the repeatability and reliability of our AM solutions alongside a great partner like Arrow Schmidt Peterson."

For almost 20 years, Arrow Schmidt Peterson Motorsports has driven a winning record in IndyCar. "With 70+ wins, 70 pole positions and seven championships in Indy Lights - the team also found success in IndyCar with seven wins, two Indianapolis 500 pole positions and three top-five finishes in the championship points standings," said a spokesperson.

"At our core, Arrow Schmidt Peterson Motorsports is committed to being the best - anytime the best is required. We are not just aiming to win IndyCar championships and Indianapolis 500s, but sustaining excellence, from design all the way to final part production," said Jon Flack, President, Arrow SPM. "Stratasys is an elite partner, allowing us to transform typical manufacturing processes with 3D printing by learning on race day and implementing by the following weekend. We are confident this collaboration will not only prove out in the shop - but produce wins on the track."
