Source:Adsale Plastics Network    Editor:JK    Date:22.Jul.2021

e-Xstream engineering, part of Hexagon's Manufacturing Intelligence division, has been selected by McLaren Racing to provide materials data management for its Formula 1 cars.

 

The historic racing team makes extensive use of advanced materials to squeeze optimal performance and handling from its race cars. The team has chosen the MaterialCenter materials lifecycle management system to help its engineering team make optimal design decisions for their vehicles quickly and efficiently, with full knowledge of the performance and cost implications at every step.

 

MaterialCenter captures data from material testing and the many tools and processes the team employs to ensure full traceability throughout each component's lifecycle.

McLaren Racing accelerates its Formula 1 car development with Hexagon's material data management.


Richard Jenkins, Materials Group Leader for McLaren Racing, said, "We chose MaterialCenter because its open architecture and flexibility allows us to integrate the system with our existing tools, and its data collection capabilities will help us understand, manage and control our advanced materials constraints so we can keep building ever-better vehicles, and winning races."

 

Designed to manage the complete materials workflow as the single point of entry for all materials-related activities, MaterialCenter guarantees that engineers use a consistent source of approved materials derived from traceable integrated processes, resulting in reduced data loss and the elimination of unnecessary and time-consuming manual data management tasks.

 

It addresses unique processes and data requirements and enables design innovation using complex and advanced materials such as alloys, elastomers, plastics, metals and composites.

 

"We are proud to have been chosen as McLaren Racing's materials management solution. We share McLaren's ambition to continuously push the envelope in engineering, and understand that the key to that is swift, unimpeded collaboration between teams and complete oversight of your resources," stated Roger Assaker, President Design & Engineering, Hexagon's Manufacturing Intelligence division.

 

Hexagon is a global leader in sensor, software and autonomous solutions. e-Xstream engineering, part of Hexagon's Manufacturing Intelligence division, provides Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) solutions to innovate and optimise product performance using the right materials and manufacturing process for the right application.
