A leading F1 Racing Team is using Ultrawave’s Ultrasonic Cleaning Equipment as part of its racing car testing and manufacturing process.

The Team already has an Ultrawave IND5800D Ultrasonic Cleaner on site, used for the effective removal of resin and support structure from 3D printed prototype models. These models are subsequently used to produce its F1 racing cars.

In addition to the Ultrawave tank, the Team also used a cleaning system from another supplier for the same application. This however, was not delivering to the high cleaning standards the Team demands.

Looking to improve their process, the Team contacted Ultrawave with their requirements. Darran Thomas, Sales Manager at Ultrawave worked closely with the Team’s Project Leader. He visited the customer’s facility to gain a thorough understanding prior to the proposal of a new system.

Ultrawave designed and built a large capacity, 1300L ultrasonic cleaning system to meet the Racing Team’s requirements. This new system delivers excellent results, cleaning larger loads effectively which leads to an increase in throughput and productivity.

In addition to the high ultrasonic cleaning performance, Ultrawave had designed and built this system to maximise usability. For ease of operation, this system is supplied with a hinged lid and a simple on/off switch.

The Project Leader at the F1 Racing Team has told Darran that their new Ultrawave system now works 10 times better than the old system from the different supplier!
