Igus says YES to Formula Student

Igus says YES to Formula Student

Igus has developed the Young Engineers Support (YES) programme in order to share its extensive knowledge with engineering students and lecturers across various UK colleges and universities. The initiative aims to provide students and lecturers with free product samples and reference materials tailored to their needs - for lectures, presentations and projects - whilst offering them the opportunity for sponsorship and to talk to Igus' specialists.

UBRacing is the latest student project to receive the support of Igus' YES initiative. The team, that comprises mechanical engineering undergraduate students at the University Of Birmingham, challenged universities from all over the world at  Formula Student 2014 at Silverstone. James Waterhouse, a member from UBRacing, comments: "Igus has offered great support to our project and has been generous enough to provide us with free samples of bearings to fit in the steering rack of our racing car."

UBRacing has been very keen on receiving the YES support from Igus. Thanks to YES, the team has had the unique opportunity to equip their racing car with Igus' state-of-the-art light-weight, self-lubricating and easy-to-fit plastic bearings. In addition, Igus' stock bar has allowed the young engineers from UBRacing to easily machine custom bearings to suit the car design.
