The Team around Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton can no longer be overtaken in the season’s remaining four races.
Thomas Borst, Managing Director of Sales and Marketing at the ebm-papst Group, said “Formula OneTM and fan technology have more in common than one might think at first glance. We both strive to achieve ever higher efficiency by using high tech. That ultimately benefits our customers.”
In aerodynamics, for example, minimizing turbulent air flow is important for both cars and fans. The winglets on HyBlade® axial fan blades from ebm-papst reduce the amount of energy input, increasing the efficiency. Flexible carbon-fiber composites are used to make cars lighter so they can accelerate faster. For its HyBlade® axial fans, ebm-papst uses glass-fiber reinforced plastic; here, too, lower weight means less mechanical stress.
Another good example of weight reduction is the hollow fan blade in the RadiPac centrifugal fan. “Efficiency and quality from high tech pay off. We’re proud to be partners of such a successful team,” added Borst.
