The Sauber F1 Team is proud to announce Additive Industries as a Technology Partner as of July 1. Additive Industries is a Netherlands based company specialised in industrial metal Additive Manufacturing. Sauber already has over 10 years of experience in Additive Manufacturing in plastics, making it a logical step to extend this capability into metals.
The manufacturing industry is changing and digitalising rapidly at this moment. The demand for shorter cycle times in manufacturing of innovative parts is growing accross industries, not only in Formula 1. To be able to establish and follow new trends in this technology, the application of state-of-the-art materials and processes is essential for Sauber.
Monisha Kaltenborn, CEO Sauber Group:
“We are delighted to welcome Additive Industries on board as a Technology Partner at Sauber. Since this innovative manufacturing technology is still in the early stages of industrialisation, it is an ideal moment for us to take on this challenge with our new partner. By doing so, we will gain and further develop the necessary know-how in this area. It is our mission to set new standards – especially with regard to our third-party business.”
Daan Kersten, CEO Additive Industries:
“We are honoured to be invited to join the Sauber F1 Team as a Technology Partner. Sauber has been the launch pad for champions for decades: Michael Schumacher, Kimi Räikkönen, Felipe Massa and Sebastian Vettel all started their careers at this unique private Swiss racing team. The professionalism of the Sauber F1 Team and their drive for technological innovation, owning one of the most advanced automotive wind tunnels in the world, fits beautifully with our quest for industrial excellence.”
