Beru f1systems: New Technical Center
Motorsport engineering specialist Beru f1systems has opened a new composites facility that will offer motorsport and aerospace companies a high temperature, high pressure 5m*2m autoclave to develop advanced, complex and high quality prototype and production composite components. The 350ÂºC autoclave, believed to be one of only a handful in the UK, is suited for developing temperature resistant and low toxicity composites whilst the 200PSi pressure enhances quality even on intricate and complex parts.
Installed in Beru f1systems’ newly constructed Technical Centre in Diss Norfolk, the autoclave is accompanied by a new preparation area with automatic cutting table and walk-in freezer for storing composites. With a significant increase in ongoing composite work, for both wiring looms and their WiC technology, the firm will also retain its existing 2m*1m autoclave. The larger size autoclave will allow the company to manufacture larger units, such as airboxes, aero and chassis tubs.
Founded in 1993 and since 2001, a specialist division of Beru AG, Ludwigsburg, Germany, Beru f1systems offers advanced design and manufacturing facilities for vehicle wiring harness systems, tyre pressure monitoring, stress measurement and composites. Supplied to world championship winning cars in every major formula and every Formula 1 team, components from the company are now available in military, road car, aerospace and nautical applications.
