Aussie Racing Car - Utilising SLS to meet deadlines


Aussie Racing Cars were only a week away from the deadline of completing their new scaled-down Toyota Aurion racing car when they contacted Formero for assistance. The new car was to be launched live on Channel Ten's RPM show, and raced for the first time at the Gold Coast Indy street-circuit.  With time running short, thinking outside the box was the only way to meet their deadline.

Formero's innovative SLS production process would allow them to manufacture the grille and side mirrors in nylon material directly from the 3D CAD, avoiding the time consuming process of tooling and molding. In just 3 days the CAD data was transformed into parts with impeccable detail.  Aussie Racing Cars were able to paint the parts and finish assembling the car just in time for the long anticipated public launch.

"SLS will play a significant role in the future production of our scaled-down racing cars as we strive to reduce lead times further and guarantee the best possible level of production response time"  Phil Ward,  Aussie Racing Cars
