BODY PANELS DEMOULDED

Large body panels have been produced by means of hand lay-up, cured under vacuum. The panels have been built-up of several layers of woven glass fibre and multi-layer woven rovings, added with sandwich cores where necessary; epoxy resin was used for impregnation. The panels will be post-cured, trimmed and prepared for paint spraying.   For […]

MOULDS IN PROGRESS

Multi-part moulds for body panels have been CNC-milled.   Several moulds have been lined with resin impregnated glass fibre weave (glassing) and received a filler coating in preparation for parts production.   For more information, contact us at info@silvermine.nl  

FIRST MOULDS PRODUCED

Several moulds for large parts have been CNC-milled and are ready for glassing and final preparation.   More pictures will follow.   For more information, contact us at info@silvermine.nl

SMALL BODY PARTS IN PRODUCTION

1 2 3 4 5   Adapter pieces for brake cooling inlets are now put into production. Two prototype parts have been produced in-house to test the process.   The shapes and dimensions have been taken from the 3-D CAD models by means of cutting out and stacking cross sections of the models. After filling […]

STEERING WHEEL UPGRADED

Buttons have been added to the steering wheel, for direct control of the dashboard display and data acquisition system. This will enable the driver to query essential engine and chassis parameters while driving, and to display results directly after finishing a session.

11SR SCALE MODEL FINALIZED

The scale model of the 11SR body has been spray painted and details have been added. The model has been printed in 3-D, as an exact copy of the design files. The model shape as presented will be used for the 1:1 body panels, soon to be produced.   For more information, contact us at […]

TEST PARTS FOR BODY PRODUCED

1 2 3 4 Prototype parts were produced for the 11SR body, to test production technologies and quality. One side panel was selected, to be assembled from a number of components.   Each component was produced by means of 3-axis milling of the production mould, and taking a product by means of hand lay-up and […]

CFD ANALYSIS PERFORMED

A basic Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis has been carried out on the 11SR design. The analysis confirmed the goals of the design, showing a suitable drag coëfficiënt and neutral values of lift/downforce. The distribution of forces between front and rear axle was checked and found to be OK. For more information, contact us at […]

11SR SCALE MODEL PRODUCED

A model of the 11SR body has been produced, with a scale of 1:12. The model has been printed in 3-D, as an exact copy of the design files. The model will be spray painted and will be used for evaluation of the body details. It will also be used to assist in further development […]
