Formula 1

The Formula 1 sector is challenging and is perhaps not for everyone. Its requirements can only be satisfied by engineering companies that are capable of machining and inspecting unusual thread fits and materials on a day to day basis to tight and exact tolerances.

Formula 1 utilises the latest in machining technology and challenges the limits on conventional processes. Parts are typically low volume made from Superalloys and high performance alloys with extra material specifications and are needed on a same day or next day delivery. Dimensional control and inspection reporting is required as is the strict adherence to all details provided. A high level of skilled workmanship is expected as standard. All burrs and sharp edges need to be removed and machining swarf and debris eliminated from parts.
