F1 Project

Our experience and thorough knowledge within the motorsport industry lead us to being the partner of choice to deliver this time critical project.

KS have a long history in supply of a variety of parts and assemblies to a number of F1 clients. For a specific client, KS built a particularly strong relationship, positioning ourselves effectively as a technical partner and ultimately, taking on for example, a complete front wing package, including the generation of all tooling and jigging design and along with all component manufacture and assembly for many seasons.

We embedded ourselves into the core of the team which included supporting design decisions with our expert input that allowed us and the client to optimise tooling and component design which collectively improved the manufacturing process and created a seamless and efficient workflow.

KS undertook the entire program and compared to the previous years spend, were able to half the tooling spend as a result.

The tight timescales between data release and parts requirement lead to the introduction of shift working giving true 24 / 7 manufacturing support and supporting the clients requirements. As a dedicated and flexible organisation with an ability to consider challenges laterally, we have consistently demonstrated an ability to deliver within very difficult parameters.

A large part of the project involved a full suite of tooling design, including all necessary alterations to ensure tools and components worked effectively during the manufacture and build.

Throughout the project we adhered to the strict and comprehensive inspection processes during the design and build to guarantee final tolerances through tight control of all stages.

Our articulate approach supported pre-season homologation testing of critical structural parts which defined and established a rapid turnaround from receipt of raw data to delivery of first complete package.

The relationship between KS Composites and the client continued after the project, there was ongoing development in support of aero gains through the season along with accident damage inspection and repairs where possible.

Speaking of the success of the project, KS Composites Business Development manager Ben Swain iterated “Our flexible approach, exceptional eye for detail and meticulous precision involved with pre-planning this project closely with the client resulted in an exceptional outcome to this exciting project ”
