SPEE3D, Melbourne, Australia, reports that its WarpSPEE3D cold spray Additive Manufacturing machine will be on show at this year’s Melbourne Formula 1 Grand Prix. Located in the Versor Tech Hub, visitors to the Grand Prix will be able to observe additively manufactured parts being built and installed on an S5000 race car.

The Versor Tech Hub will feature new and advanced technologies emerging from Australia’s leading companies in AI, IoT, Formula 1, automotive, defence, aviation, aerospace, education institutes and start-ups. It is intended to provide a platform for businesses to showcase insights into future capabilities through interactive displays.

SPEE3D will demonstrate its WarpSPEE3D large-format cold spray metal AM machine, capable of building multiple components at once, up to 1000 x 700 mm in diameter. Parts will be additively manufactured and installed on the S5000 open-wheel race car provided by Garry Rogers Motorsport.

The S5000 cars are the fastest in Australian circuit racing, with the drivers contesting the Australian Drivers’ Championship and Motorsport Australia Gold Star. With 5-litre V8 engines, producing 560 bhp, the cars can reach speeds of up to 300 kph and will run in a support race to the Melbourne Grand Prix.
