The pareto principle is a mathematical rule of broad interpretation that states that 20% of what you do results in 80% of your outcomes. In Formula 1 its amazingly close to the ratio of composite component parts versus weight. Race cars are constructed using close to over 80% of hybrid composite components which adds to only 20% of the overall vehicles weight. It’s an outstanding testament to the incredible engineering that is facilitated by composites in race winning design and manufacture. The fusion of a wide range of composite materials are pivotal in leading race car design, utility, and strength. We can put this another way, by stating that the overall race car’s weight reduces by over 80% when compared to using standard production components and sub-assemblies. Composite components are vital elements of construction in providing race drivers and teams the winning edge in Formula 1 and motorsport.
We at Freeform Technology fully understand this and offer a wide range of services from design and manufacture of patterns and moulds, through to moulding of composite components. These include:
Most importantly it’s our people that help make the biggest difference to each of our clients. We work closely with each individual client towards producing tailor made composite components and sub-assemblies. We are a team that understand client pressures of critical timelines and the necessity for quality bespoke composite components and the design and manufacture of patterns and moulds. It’s everyone’s ambition here at Freeform Technology to provide the very best service to our customers, and in turn, we may also get an opportunity to share in their success on the podium. Freeform Technology can help you realise the race winning pareto difference!
This is the final article in our series of three, where we have taken a deeper look ‘under the hood’ at what our approach can offer towards those seeking to gain coveted podium wins, and importantly, how Freeform Technology can support that ambition.
