FRIEDBERG, Germany

Race enthusiasts are still familiar with the name Toni Mang, even years after his legendary victories. Now the five-time world champion, who dominated the 250 ccm and 350 ccm class between 1980 and 1987, visited voxeljet to find out more about the possibilities of 3D printing.

The most successful German motorcycle racer, who is still active in the racing world particularly for the promotion of young talent, was visibly impressed by the digital production process. The trained toolmaker from Inning am Ammersee has also made a name for himself as an inventor and developer of metal construction, and was very excited about the simple and tool-less production of functional models and moulds for metal casting using the 3D printing method.

Dr. Ingo Ederer referred to the large number of already implemented 3D printing projects for the racing sport. voxeljet has also been a sponsor of student race teams several times. Hence there was no shortage of discussion topics at this particular meeting.
