Yet another request for building 3D Printed part for a formula car designed by engineering students. This time we were approached by Students of National Institute of Technology (NIT) Kerala, India, “Team unwired” for building Intake manifold through Rapid Prototype for their F1 racing car.
The material used, ULTEM 9085 is an ideal fit for aerospace and automotive duct work—lightweight applications that require a high heat deflection. In the aerospace industry, most parts are required to have this rating to ensure the flame, smoke and toxicity (FST) resistance of a material as well. In addition, ULTEM has a V-0 flammability rating, giving it excellent flame retardant properties.
NIT team successfully participated at Irungattukottai Race Track, Chennai and Buddh International Circuit Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh, 40 km from New Delhi, India
