Lighter, stronger, and faster—that’s the goal for every component of a racing motorcycle. But the time it takes to prototype and manufacture these parts can put a company in last place, fast. P3Carbon needed to get into 3D printing, and suspected that printing parts without reinforcement would only work for prototypes. Using the Mark One, they are able to solve the entire problem by creating functional, end-use parts that can ship immediately.
“Now we can take a customer request or an internal idea and 2 days later we’ll have the part in our catalog and ready to ship.”
Today P3Carbon has their Mark One printer running all-day, both prototyping new parts and creating end-use parts for sale. They can respond to customer demand and ramp production within a few hours and customize any part to the exact specifications of the customer.
