Briggs Automotive Company (BAC) Ltd. makes the BAC Mono, a lightweight, ultra high performance, road legal supercar that is designed and manufactured using the latest racing technology. The Mono is an aggressive design and will set a new benchmark in the small, but elite segment of radical, lightweight sports cars.

The company will deliver two machining demonstrations: the steering upright created for the BAC Mono project, which will be running on a Doosan machine supplied by Mills CNC; and a gearbox casing produced from scratch. The latter will highlight how manufacturers can reduce cycle time by up to 60% using PowerMill CAM software. At the end of the demonstration, visitors will be able to get their hands on the machined part and compare it with a cast gearbox casing.
