FRONT WHEEL ASSEMBLY ADDED

The front wheel hubs, stub axles, brake discs and calipers have now been assembled and fitted to the wishbones. The bearing group inside each wheel hub contains metallic contact seals, with an extra dirt seal at the open side. The hubs will be fitted with a wheel-speed sensor. Each wheel is driven by means of […]

FRAME CONSTRUCTIONS INTEGRATED

The front sub-frame assembly has been mounted on the central structure, and wishbones and steering rods have been fitted. The complete sub-frame can be quickly dismounted from the central structure, by unscrewing the five anchor point bolts. Cooling water piping and air ducting can be disconnected just as simple. Inside the central structure, the steering […]

SUB-FRAME CONSTRUCTION ASSEMBLED

A sub-frame assembly is now ready for mounting on the central structure and further outfitting. The sub-frame integrates CNC-machined aluminium front and rear webs with aluminium/Nomex® sandwich panels in the sides and bottom. The steering housing can be seen against the front web. This assembly, designed and produced in-house by Ferron bv, will be connected […]

PANELS CLOSED, TUBE STRUCTURES ADDED

All sandwich panels of the central structure have now been closed, forming a construction of high strength and stiffness. Two tube structures have been connected to the aluminium/Nomex® sandwich panels by means of anchor points, integrated in the panels. The central structure, designed and produced in-house by Ferron bv, is now ready to be connected […]

3-D CONSTRUCTION GROWING

By connecting more sandwich panels to the centre part, a full 3-D construction is being produced by Ferron bv. An effective system to connect these aluminium/Nomex® sandwich panels yields a construction with high stiffness and low Weight. Integrated connectors for dismountable sub-structures feed the resulting point loads into the Ferron 20N panels (see picture). For […]

SANDWICH PANELS INTEGRATED

Ferron bv has now produced the centre part of a full 3-D construction. Combining our 20N panel system (aluminium/Nomex® sandwich panels) with laser-cut and CNC formed aluminium sheets, a lightweight construction has been made, with ample space for internal equipment. The Ferron philosophy: “more design work means less production work”, is proven in this construction. […]

SANDWICH CONSTRUCTION TAKES SHAPE

Based on the aluminium/Nomex® sandwich panels developed in-house, Ferron bv is currently producing a full 3-D construction. This construction, using the Ferron 20N panel system, integrates inter-connected panelling with dismountable connectors to interface with sub-assemblies at both sides. By means of a clever system of welding, combined with laser-cut sheets, these constructions can be assembled […]

FERRON DEVELOPS SANDWICH PANELS

Ferron bv has designed and developed lightweight panels and panelled constructions in high strength anodised aluminium, with Nomex® honeycomb cores, fully riveted and bonded. Aluminium/Nomex® sandwich panels of 20 mm thickness (we call them 20N panels) are based on square and rectangular aluminium tubes, and can be executed with aluminium sheets of 1 or 2 […]
