Bronte Precision are extremely proud to have helped out the Hermes Racing Team who are in the Finals of the F1 in Schools competition.
The team is made up of sixth form students from Latymer Upper School who were challenged to design, test and race their very own miniature Formula 1 car against teams from around the country.
The team had one big problem though…2 weeks to the Grand Finals and their car still needed wheels. “They have tried to make them on the lathe manually but this has proved very difficult and inaccurate.” A teacher for the school had said, requesting urgent help to help the students.
Answering the call, Bronte Precision managed to squeeze the aluminium wheels onto their production schedule, using a CNC machine in order to produce an accurate end product that will hopefully speed Hermes’ car all the way to victory.
“We think this is a fantastic competition and hope that it will encourage many students in the UK to consider a career in engineering.” Said Steven Leach, MD of Bronte Precision “Manufacturing and engineering can be exciting if presented in the right way, and we wish the team every success for the competition and the future.”
Bronte Precision are based in Bradford, West Yorkshire and provide sub-contract CNC machining.
