igus® helps Formula Student racing team feed its need for speed
UH Racing is the UK’s most successful formula student team of all time. Founded in 1997, the team consists of 30 undergraduate students from the School of Engineering and Technology and they develop a new vehicle each year. A team of students from the Univeristy of Hertfordhsire were asked to make this years UH Racing car much lighter in weight than previous years.
igus, one of the teams sponsors, was more than happy to help with this, explaining the features and benefits of using complex polymer and ultralight metal components in place of the more traditional steel ones.
