Designed and built by a group of German students, the AL’15 prototype race car got a fair bit of attention at the Teufel Protoypen (Unterfahlheim, Germany) booth. The ninth such prototype developed by Einstein Motorsport, a student project at the university of Ulm in Germany, features an injection molded chassis made from a carbon fiber composite. The goal here is not to produce the fastest set of wheels on the road but for the students to demonstrate their engineering acumen as well as their financial planning and marketing skills.
Teufel Prototypen, a design and prototyping bureau, is one of the sponsors of the Einstein Motorsport program, named in honor of Ulm's native son, Albert Einstein. It capitalized on its investment by showcasing the car at its booth at Fakuma and was rewarded by a steady flow of looky loos.
Teufel provides an array of additive manufacturing, casting, rapid tooling, high-speed cutting and model making services to customers in a range of industries. The company reports that it has seen increased demand for its injection mold tooling services over the last few years.
