SHAPE has had the pleasure of working on the tooling and parts for a composite steering wheel to be used in a cockpit simulator.
Managing Director, Ryan Muller said “We have been very fortunate to be involved in this project, whereby we will need to manage the production of several steering wheels a week for a very reputable customer”.
SHAPE machine patterns for the Aerospace, Automotive and Motorsport industries as well as 5 axis machining foams and Carbon composite materials.
Muller added “We really enjoy engineering challenges and finding the solution. Our customer sent us the part CAD and asked us how we would go about engineering the tooling and creating the final product. We’ve managed the process from customer A-surfaces to finished parts”.
