Prodrive brings new technologies to Indian market   Print  
Monday, 4th January 2010

British motorsport and technology specialist, Prodrive, has established a partnership with Opti Engineering to help bring its engineering skills and technologies to vehicle manufacturers based in India.

Prodrive, which already has operations in the UK, China and Australia, has recognised that Indian vehicle manufacturers want to own the IP (Intellectual Property) that underpins the key technologies in their vehicle systems and to understand those systems to allow in-house development. “Three key elements have made our client relationships so successful in India,” says Tony Butcher, Prodrive managing director. “Our understanding of the priorities of the Indian customer, our impartiality towards different hardware providers and our willingness to share technical expertise in key systems. With the establishment of our partnership with Opti Engineering, there will now be a fourth factor; local support.”

Chemical process offers cleaner, lighter and safer bodyshells   Print  
Stage One for mild steel components and a shell involves removing heavy organic coatings such as sealants and NVH material. Images show shells prior to preparation. Ferrari 250SWB Thursday, 17th December 2009

Unique chemical process removes all unnecessary weight, resulting in a cleaner bodyshell that is easier and safer to prepare for racing and rallying.

A unique chemical immersion process that easily removes all paint, grease, oil, underseal, adhesives and sound deadening material offers motorsport preparation companies a simpler and safer method for stripping and cleaning bodyshells. By removing up to 35kg of unnecessary weight from a typical four door shell, the process developed by Surface Processing (SPL), also offers preparation companies a legal weight reduction service without affecting the existing vehicle strength. SPL’s process also claims to improve the working environment for engineers; by removing paint, adhesive and underseal, any further preparation work such as welding is done on clean metal, avoiding the release of noxious fumes and lowering the fire risk.
