The Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team extends partnership with Additive Industries, adding a third MetalFAB1 machine to its headquarters’ facilities

The Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team is delighted to announce the extension of the ongoing technology partnership with Additive Industries, which began in 2017.

A third MetalFAB1 system was introduced to the company’s headquarters in Hinwil, Switzerland as part of the extension of the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team’s 3D printing capabilities to metals. The machine uses a 3D printing technique that substantially improves reproducibility, productivity, and flexibility, and enables an efficient method of producing parts for a broad spectrum of applications.

Frédéric Vasseur, Team Principal Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team and CEO Sauber Motorsport AG:
“We are pleased to be extending our current partnership with Additive Industries, and to introduce a third MetalFAB1 3D printing system to our facilities. Not only do we aim to develop our production of parts for Formula One further, but we are also expanding our competences and activity in our third-party businesses. Building on the successful collaboration we have had so far, we look forward to working with Additive Industries and making further progress with our shared projects.”

Daan Kersten, CEO Additive Industries:
“For Additive Industries, this partnership extension with the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team confirms the acceleration in industrial additive manufacturing that we are aiming for. Repeat sales in such a short time are the best compliment for our team, both for the system design and 3D metal printing process but also for our customer support team which works closely with the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team to reach the highest productivity in the market today. We are both proud and grateful for such a partnership.”
