Official Sponsor of MAC Formula Electric

MAC Formula Electric represents McMaster University at Formula Student. Their goal is to compete and place in the top 10 on the world stage. OCTOPUZ is proud to be an official sponsor and wish Jackson and his team continued success on their journey to race in Europe!

MAC Formula Electric is a student-run organization that represents McMaster University at Formula Student. The team of 90+ is led by Jackson Diebel, a former co-op student of In-House Solutions. The team is designing and building a single-seat, open-wheeled race car to compete in the Formula Student and Formula SAE international engineering competitions. Their goal is to compete on the world stage, so they are designing their car specifically to European Rules, with their ultimate goal to put a North American team in the top 10 of the world rankings (currently there are only European teams).


Previous generations designed and built their cars with combustion engines, which later evolved to hybrid powertrains. MAC Formula Electric is building the first fully electric powertrain car, leveraging the development done in previous generations, like the chassis, and combining it with new designs. This mix provides them with the best chance to have a high-performing, yet reliable car from the start line.

MAC Formula Electric relies on sponsors who donate funds, in-kind donations or discounts on products. They currently have a crowdfunding campaign live on Indigogo, where GM Canada has partnered with them to provide prizes and will match every dollar raised up to their goal of $10,000.

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
