Denford

manufacturer of CAD/CAM solutions and education projects has launched a new
range of Official F1 in Schools equipment at this year’s F1 in Schools World

The
suite of next generation Official F1 in Schools products was unveiled at the
Opening Ceremony of the World Finals 2017, held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with
the competing teams using the F1 in Schools Race System Powered by Denford for
the first time in the competition.

The
new Official F1 in Schools Race Track not only looks stunning but brings
together an ergonomic design with a lightweight track, high tech digital
display Start/Finish gates with Wifi data transmission and an integrated cable
management system.

The
new range also includes rugged Start Boxes, a Deceleration System, Air Trace Visualisation
System, F1 Model Blocks, CO2 Power Packs and Car Manufacturing Fixture for CNC
Routers. The new hardware is complimented with Denford CNC machinery and a
suite of CAE software.

The
Official F1 in Schools products have been developed and manufactured in the UK
with lead Engineering designer, Steve Oddy, Technical Director of Denford Ltd, masterminding
the launch range. He says of today’s announcement, “We’ve worked hard to
develop the next generation of F1 in Schools equipment that meets the needs of
schools and students, especially with the lightweight, portable track system
and the Start Gate with its clear display and data storage functionality. The
Air Trace Visualisation System will also be a valuable asset for aerodynamic
capability analysis and demonstrating this in the classroom. We’re excited to
be launching the range and delivering it to our global markets.”

Andrew
Denford, Founder and Chairman of F1 in Schools, commented on the launch, “F1 in
Schools has seen exponential growth over nearly 20 years and in today’s
technology driven world, it is important to deliver cutting edge equipment that
future proofs our STEM Challenge. The range combines the highest standards of
manufacture with the cutting edge technology that F1 in Schools needs. Launching
at the World Finals has given us the global reach to introduce it to our
partners for the international roll-out and with the teams using the system for
the first time in Malaysia, it’s been a great introduction for the new track
system that has been very well-received’.
