ZEISS and Williams Racing are proud to work in partnership in a multi-year association with ZEISS being an Official Supplier of the team.
The partnership sees ZEISS provide a range of equipment benefiting departments throughout the business including Wind Tunnel, Quality & Inspection and Prototype & Test.
The installation of a new ZEISS METROTOM 1500 industrial computed tomography system at the team’s campus in Grove UK will expand the team’s in-house capabilities and deliver greater insights into the quality and integrity of components, ensuring a precise, accurate and robust quality control process.
Before we had ZEISS METROTOM there were features on components that we physically could not measure, having this is a real Game Changer for us.
Support from ZEISS has been really beneficial. They are on call at all times, ensuring that we are fully optimizing our equipment.
