REAR FRAME ASSEMBLED

The rear sub-frame assembly has been mounted on the central structure by means of high-strength aluminium tubes, and mounting brackets for the wishbones and spring/damper units have been fitted. The sub-frame integrates CNC-machined aluminium front and rear webs with aluminium/Nomex® sandwich panels in the bottom. The complete sub-frame can be quickly dismounted from the central […]

GEAR CHANGE CONTROL AND ELECTRIC INSTALLATION

The short-stroke gear change mechanism, designed and produced in-house by Ferron bv, has now been installed and tested. Push-pull cables with limited slack connect the control side with the gearbox. In the central structure the wiring loom has been installed, including front relay box, dashboard and control switches. Front and rear sub-frames are connected through […]

FRONT END AND PEDAL BOX FINALIZED

The front sub-frame has been fitted spring-damper combinations, cylinders for brake and clutch systems, and electric connections. A torsion bar made out of spring steel forms the anti-roll bar. The pedal box is finalized and is provided with a brake light switch and adjustable end stops. For ease of (dis)mounting, the box has been executed […]

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 […]
