The collaboration between Mark One and Kawasaki was born in 2018 following the company’s interest in additive technology, necessary to revolutionize the production cycle and to create new high-performance components.

Originally, the leading motorsport company was looking for a reality that guaranteed experience, support, studying corporate projects in depth. The choice fell on Mark One, a startup specialized in the production of customized 3D printers for the industrial world that provides the necessary expertise to ensure that additive manufacturing is successfully implemented in industrial processes. 

Here comes the Kawasaki case. A case that reflects what Mark One has been carrying out within manufacturing companies since its origins: assistance and support in this technology implementation, optimizing it to be leveraged to its full potential. 

In the past, many companies have used 3D printing in the racing world, but the peculiarity lies precisely in the fact that the Kawasaki team has all the support and tools to develop, and then realize, a 3D print project on the spot instead of waiting for the delivery of the printed components. This means that there will be no labor costs and additional times. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand that personalization, support and quality of technology is possible only through cooperation and collaboration of the supply chain between the supplier of innovative technologies and the final user.
  • The Kawasaki case is the perfect representation of the optimization of the supply chain, which took place thanks to the products and services created by the partnership with Mark One.
  • Learn how KRT has saved over 85% in production time and costs compared to traditional methods.
