F1 Approach

Our core philosophy is to leverage our vast and unrivalled experience in F1, offering engineering solutions that maximises sustainability through various innovative design methodologies developed within the F1 industry. We are focused on delivering customised, highly innovative solutions to meet our client’s specific requirements. Our DNA is rooted in extensive Research and Development (R&D), fast-paced development, on-time, within-budget, and reliance on a trusted international network of partners and specialists.

F1 has always been a breeding ground for the fast-paced development and application of new technology. From powertrain evolution to aerodynamic advancements, engineers continually push the limits of what they can achieve to the ultimate edge. Unfortunately, due to F1’s secrecy, these developments do not tend to be shared to the wider scientific/engineering community. We aim to share the know-how of these developed solutions to industries such as aerospace and automotive. Our commercial strength is to deliver these F1 cutting-edge technology solutions to multiple industries.

The F1 industry, in its relentless pursuit of minimising car mass while maintaining high safety standards to maximise performance, has developed an extensive know-how of technologies and processes. We are poised to use our combined 200+ years of experience in the industry to apply these technologies to contribute to the UK Government’s challenge of net zero by 2050. As all the industries work towards the ambitious challenges, MGI wants to be the enabler to achieve this goal. 

We are racing towards net zero, with an F1 mindset and an experienced engineering team to lead the way!

Our advanced capabilities enable us to deliver results for our clients that are on time and on budget. We thrive on meeting engineering challenges within the automotive, aerospace and marine sectors, striving to meet and exceed client expectations. 

Additive Manufacturing

Making a three-dimensional product from a CAD model or digital 3D model is known as additive manufacturing, sometimes known as 3D printing. Using CAD software or 3D object scanners, additive manufacturing employs tools to guide the layer-by-layer deposition of material in exact geometric patterns. In additive manufacturing, as the name suggests, materials are added to an item to build an object. Despite the fact that “3D printing” and “rapid prototyping” are frequently used to refer to additive manufacturing, each technique is essentially a subset of additive manufacturing. Here at MGI we have a selection of UltiMaker models which we use for jigs and fixtures and prototyping.
