Design, Build, Compete

Posted: May 13, 2017

Design, Build, Compete.  These are the words dedicated engineering students live by for twelve months to build an open wheel race car from scratch.  JAKTOOL’s president and CEO, Jeff Kinsberg, participated and led the Rutgers effort in the late 90′s.  ”Applying the academic curriculum to the real word sets in motion a steep learning curve”, states Jeff.  In addition to applying all disciplines of  engineering, students learn about manufacturing, procurement, resource and time management, marketing, sales, logistics, and any other aspect they need to run a race team.  The students travel to Michigan in May to compete with over 120 domestic and international teams.

Understanding the value of mentoring students in engineering and manufacturing, JAKTOOL has supported the formula racing program at Rutgers University since 2001.  Select students are allowed to work with  JAKTOOL engineers in the office and shop after going through safety and policy training.  For the 2017 car, #50, students worked in our prototype facility manufacturing the four uprights that hold the wheels to the chassis.  These four precision machined components took nearly 80 hours to program, manufacture, inspect, and just as much time to design and analyze.

T1 Trust provided CAD & Engineering for Historic Locomotive CAB

Posted: May 6, 2017

JAKTOOL joined the T1 Trust to support the design, engineering, and construction of a historic locomotive, a Pennsylvania Railroad design known as a T1.  The locomotive was technologically sophisticated with cutting edge materials and poppet valving for reduced reciprocating mass.  These and other design innovations resulted in a powerful, fast, and graceful design that was distinctively streamlined by Raymond Loewy.

Work on the 5550 locomotive is underway, and the T1 Trust is rapidly gaining attention as the premier new-build steam project in the United States. More than that, the T1 Trust has come to symbolize the rebirth of American Industry.
