Revolutionizing Racing: How Hawaya Racing Stays Ahead with Markforged 3D Printing

In the exhilarating and cutthroat world of racing, where a millisecond makes all the difference, one has to stay ahead not just in speed but also with an innovative edge. Meet the powerhouse team from Hawaya Racing, including Johnny Vickers, who pioneered Harley Davidson Drag Racing and street motorcycles from 1985. The quest for performance, speed, and safety has been unending, and championships and accolades are by-products of this crazy quest.

The Evolution of Hawaya Racing

When Johnny Vickers finally claimed his title as NHRA Pro Fuel Champion, he knew that the conventional manufacturing methodologies would not cut the race. The innovation journey for Hawaya Racing had begun with small-part fabrication and machining to what turned into a full-fledged operation driven by the spirit of Harley Davidson motorcycles and an unquenchable thirst for speed.

The Challenge

The quest for perfection was unyielding. Existing manufacturing methods were robust but had little impact—mostly on time and resources. However, Johnny and his team were challenged to take their innovative mindset even further: how can we make these parts better, faster, cheaper, and greener?

Enter Markforged 3D Printing

The game-changer: the Markforged X7 Industrial 3D Printer, brought to the table by Hawaya Racing’s partnership with Phillips Corporation. The X7 uses the latest technology in continuous carbon fiber reinforcement, offering solutions that far outweigh the traditional approach in speed and cost-effectiveness, and provide unbeatable strength and precision.

The Solution:

By harnessing the power of the Markforged Digital Forge Platform, Hawaya Racing has unlocked a world of possibilities. From rapid prototyping to end-use parts, the X7 allows Johnny and his team to iterate new ideas quickly, cheaply validate parts, and get an end product with lighter weight and better performance on the track.

There is no better way to look for innovation than to compare the conventionally manufactured set of throttle grips with that produced using Markforged X7. In comparison to the traditional aluminum set-up, in which there are various raw material set-ups and multiple machining processes, the composite set-up has no set-ups, minimal use of raw material, no use of CNC machines, and no use of fixtures.

Johnny Vickers on the Markforged Advantage

For Johnny Vickers, the owner of Hawaya Racing, Markforged 3D printing technology is not just about a competitive advantage; it’s about changing the game in the sport of Nitro Harley Drag Racing. The journey was very reasonable since the partnership with Phillips Corporation along the way was advantageous and a full-throttled support of expertise and technology.

The concluding note is that innovation is key. With Markforged 3D printing for Hawaya Racing, they are not just keeping the pace. From track to workshop, there are no bounds for the pursuit of excellence. As Johnny and his team push the limits of their ideas, it’s clear that the future of racing has arrived, and it is faster and lighter than ever before.
