CASE STUDY: University of Auckland FSAE Race Car
The SAE Race Car is a by-product of teamwork and excellence in engineering.
CUSTOMER: University of Auckland Formula SAE team
PROJECT: Formula SAE
MATERIALS: PET Foam & Fibre Glass
As an official sponsor of the University of Auckland Formula SAE team and the ongoing support to the next generation of NZ engineers, Jackson Industries performed the machining of the racing car monocoque and nose cone along with several other peripheral components.
A base sub structure of PET foam was machined, then laminated with fibre glass and machined a second time to obtain the plug and mould structure to allow the FSAE team to create moulds and produce the parts critical to be able to compete in the annual international FSAE competition.

What our customer had to say:
“ Without their generosity, we would never [have been] able to manufacture our chassis and various aerodynamic components.”
