Rapid response and OTD keeps F1 team on schedule


One of the world’s foremost Formula 1 racing teams required a high specification sealing solution ahead of their 2012 season.


The motorsports team urgently required a custom made damper seal in time for the first test session of the season. The car was due to leave the UK within 5 days of the order being placed with PPE. Failure to test the car with the seal in place would affect the set-up and performance.


PPE machined three different sizes of seal on a rapid five day lead time, but shipped a day early to ensure the seals were received ahead of the car leaving the UK.


The rapid manufacture and on time delivery of high performance custom seals saved £10,000’s in engineering downtime during the test session.
