Thompson Precision regularly provide specialist parts for the Motorsports industries, including high-precision machined metal and plastic components, metal and plastic rapid prototyping and tooling for carbon fibre components. Using 3 and 5 Axis CNC Machining, as well as the expertise of our multi-skilled engineers, we can machine complex components accurately and quickly.
Thompson Precision machine a wide range of materials, including aluminium, titanium, engineering plastics, polyurethane and epoxy tooling boards and many more. We keep some material in stock for fast-turnaround projects – contact us to find out more.
We have a huge experience in the field of additive manufacture in plastics and metals and to facilitate the rapid manufacture of precision castings in a wide range of metals. The combination of rapid prototyping technology with precision CNC machining can offer motorsport designers previously impossible options and produce 3D printed components with optimum weight and strength characteristics. We fully understand the potential of this cutting-edge technology and we are always excited to work on new projects and lend our experience to help maximise the benefits.
Precision Engineering for Formula 1 motorsport
Our focus on speed and reliability is often sought after by Motorsport and Formula 1 customers, as any delay to delivery can be disastrous. Our fast-turnaround and high-precision services, combined with a wide range of other services including a wide range of finishes, painting, precision masking and many more makes Thompson Precision a one-stop shop for low volume manufacturing in the motorsport industry.
Milling components from solid is often the fastest, strongest and most precise way of sourcing low-volume components – our design team, using Solidworks software, often work with our Motorsport customers to ensure components are as light as possible while retaining strength.
With a wide selection of CNC Machines capable of 3 and 5 Axis milling, we’re ready to begin your project straight away. With our fast-turnaround service we’re often able to get your parts back to you within days – contact us to find out how quickly we can complete your project.
Our Inspection Department can offer CMM inspection and First Article Inspection Reports, as well as full traceability on all materials if required.
