Non-Standard Item for Formula 1 Manufacturer

We have been recently approached by a leading car manufacturer in the Formula One racing series. They had an urgent requirement for two large surface ground plates of the following tolerances:-

Grade O1 Tool Steel: 5mm (+0.05/-0mm) x 470mm (+0.2/-0mm) x 1000mm (+5/-0mm) - 

Flatness Tolerance 0.2mm per 500mm 

The flatness tolerance was critical to their requirements as they were to be used in the aerodynamics department. We delivered within 24 hours of receipt of the original inquiry to the standards required.

We can produce what you require, to your tolerances in a wide variety of different steels, in addition to the O1, D2 and Niolox that we already stock. To discuss your requirements please get in touch, or to view our standard range please visit our online shop.
