Milled parts from H&E

For properly functioning steering the steering linkage needs a particularly rigid mounting. This season our upper steering shaft is attached to the front hoop with a milled aluminium contruction (our steering column holder). So that this construction can perform as planned, we have the highest standards for production. With parts that are complicated to manufacture, such as the steering column holder, good communication with our manufacturer, Hofmann & Engel Producktentwicklung GmbH, is especially important. Further milled parts that Hofmann & Engel Producktentwicklung GmbH produced are the bearing nuts and Y-inserts for the rear axle. The bearing nuts are necessary for the fixing of the wheel bearings. In addition, the bearing nuts help the Hall sensors to measure the wheel rotation speed, so the desired profile must be milled with very high precision. A big thank you therefore goes to Hofmann & Engel Produktentwicklung GmbH in Moritzburg, who brought our racing car a step forward with their 5 axis milling machine. The company, founded in 1995, employs nearly 50 people, three quarters of whom are engineers. Together with their partner Hofmann Innovation Group, the company covers the following areas: design, testing and prototyping, pre-series and series tool making, as well as medium series production.
