Mazak’s machining centres are the mainstay of McLaren’s manufacturing operation. The latest automated multi-axis machines have massively reduced the time required to manufacture metal and alloy components for our Formula 1 cars.

As a brief example, our old machines took three men 12 hours to machine a single F1 wheelnut, our new unmanned machines can produce one every two hours, slicing a massive eight weeks off the production time needed to make enough wheelnuts for a single race weekend.
