Vericut provides safe & optimised machining operations for Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team

The machine shop of the Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team relies on Vericut verification, simulation and optimisation software from CGTech to guarantee the successful machining of its many high complexity and high value components.

A Vericut user for over two decades, the team has engrained Vericut into its Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), aware of the benefits it provides in reducing machine collisions and component scrap, while simultaneously optimising lead time.

Mercedes F1 has an array of 5-axis machining centres and turn mill centres at its Brackley facility.

Today, the Machine Shop at the Team headquarters in Brackley, Northamptonshire, not only manufactures parts for the race cars, but also for several customer programmes, including other Formula One Teams and the INEOS Britannia Americas Cup sailing Team.
