Greg Hallam and Colin Woodruff from Hallam (pictured second and third from the right) recently visited the Red Bull Racing Formula 1 Team HQ in Milton Keynes to look at DMG Mori’s state-of-the-art CNC machining equipment being used in the manufacture of components for Red Bull’s Formula One racing cars.
Red Bull deploys over £10m worth of DMG Mori equipment and Hallam is considering further investment in similar equipment to enhance its own machining operations.
Colin and Greg (second and third from the right) are pictured with members of the Red Bull F1 construction team with the winning car from the 2016 Spanish Grand Prix.
Greg Hallam Technical Director of Hallam says:
‘This has been a really interesting visit. Red Bull mainly uses DMG’s EVO 5 axis machining centres, mainly because of their speed and accuracy in manufacturing prismatic parts, together with CTX BETA TC machinery for the turning and 5 axis machining of Red Bull cars’ rotating components.’
MG Mori is a technical partner to Red Bull Racing supplying all machine shop requirements for CNC-based machining equipment, providing high quality reliable technology and backup to ensure that Red Bull Racing can compete at the very highest level.
