JGR has incorporated Stratasys’ FDM technology into their race program for more than a decade, giving them advantages in prototyping and production. The Fortus 400mc 3D Production System allows JGR to print parts for functional testing and end use parts for their cars.

“Stratasys has been a technology partner with Joe Gibbs Racing for over 10 years. We started out making a few prototype pieces for motor development. Today, Stratasys supports many projects and several departments,” says Mark Bringle, technical sponsorship and marketing director at JGR. “It is an accurate statement that the use of Stratasys technology has sped up the development process, totally changing the way we go about manufacturing.”

Recently, JGR expanded their 3D printing technology by adding the Objet500 Connex3 Color Multi-material 3D Printer. The PolyJet technology allows JGR to 3D print color multi-material parts ranging from rigid to flexible all within the same build. The results are reduced costs, improved quality, improved design efficiency, increased profit and increased competitive advantage.

“The automotive industry has been quick to adopt cutting-edge additive manufacturing,” says Eric Bert, vice president of sales in North America for Stratasys. “As one of the premier racing teams on the NASCAR Nationwide Series circuit, JGR uses 3D printing for advanced applications including compressed engineering development cycles, critical component design optimization, jigs and fixture creation, and end use part production. We’re very pleased to support the Joe Gibbs Racing team on their road to victory.”
