Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN takes another step forward in the realm of technological innovation as the organization unveils a partnership with AM Solutions, a brand of the Rösler Group. As part of the agreement to bolster the team’s post-processing of additively manufactured parts, Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN will acquire three S1 systems by AM Solutions – 3D postprocessing technology to bring the automation, economic efficiency and repeatability of its post-processing to the next level.

AM Solutions is a brand created by Rösler, one of the world’s leading experts in surface finishing, to offer tailor-made products and services designed around the challenges and needs of additive manufacturing. With 3D printing having an increasingly profound effect on every aspect of industrial manufacturing, including that of a Formula One team, the edge provided by AM Solutions helps the team have access to industrial solutions for partial to fully automated postprocessing of polymer and metal additive parts for all printing technologies.

Several 3D printed parts feature on the Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN C41, competing in the 2021 Formula One world championship, and the ability to have more precisely made items created in an efficient and cost-effective way will provide benefits to the team. The new S1 system for the automatic de-powdering and cleaning of small to midsize volumes of 3D printed parts offers numerous new technical features, such as a new basket design for optimal distribution and circulation of the parts, a specially developed wear protection lining made of non-staining anti-static polyurethane, ATEX conformity, and safe and ergonomic machine handling.

Stephan Rösler, President & CEO of the Rösler Group: “We are delighted to partner with Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN in the field of post-processing of additive manufactured parts. As an early adopter of 3D printing, Sauber has recognized the importance of post-processing in terms of automation, cost-effectiveness and repeatability in the AM production chain. Their deep knowledge and experience will help us to further improve our solutions and to increase the awareness of our still young AM Solutions brand. We will bring our decades of know-how in surface finishing combined with our tailor-made solutions for the needs and challenges of AM to the track. By this partnership, we create a perfect win-win situation for two highly innovative companies, that always strive for the max.”

Frédéric Vasseur, Team Principal Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN and CEO Sauber Motorsport AG: “Additive manufacturing is playing an ever-increasing role in Formula One and every new iteration of our race cars feature more 3D printed parts – in addition to those used in other operations of the company, from the wind tunnel models to experimental parts. The innovations brought by AM Solutions help us create parts quickly, more efficiently and with less waste, meaning we gain on time and money, two resources available in very finite amounts in our sport, while at the same time improving the sustainability of our operations. It’s all part of the marginal gains we make across every aspect of our operations as we move towards the front of the grid.”

As a pseudonym, Victor has also had a fascinating made-up life story, living as a digital (and virtual) nomad to cover the global AM industry. He has always worked extra-hard whenever he was needed to create unique content. However, lately, as our editorial team has grown, he is mostly taking care of publishing press releases.
