It is their passion, together with continuous research for the development of the most advanced technologies which has guided the UFI Filters High Tech Division team – specialised in the production of filtration solutions for “extreme” performances, such as those required for example in Formula 1. 9 out of 10 F1 teams have chosen our products: Ferrari, Mercedes and others. Our technicians work closely with our customers to develop optimal filtration technologies, working in co-design with the design engineers of the various manufacturers. The partnership with the racing world began in the 70s: the first success was in 1976 with the F1 world championship, thanks to the team work of UFI with the Ferrari F1 team. A series of positive results that continue today with the supply of about 10,000 individual parts per year, including hydraulic filters, oil filters, fuel filters, last chance filters and air filters, for the leading teams, not only in the best known series, but also in other competitions such as the Formula2, MotoGp, Moto2, Moto3, the GT2, GT3, GTE and LMP Championships and the Superbike. The know-how of our High Tech Division is a key factor for the traditional UFI Filters automotive production, in which the experience gained in the world of competitions is transferred.
The High Tech Division of the UFI FILTERS Group is involved in the design and production of air, oil and fuel filtration systems for aerospace, military, marine and the defence sector vehicles. From the experience gained from the racing world and the production of Original Equipment for the automotive industry, UFI Filters produces highly technological components, created with craftsmanship, to ensure maximum filtration capacity, performance and reliability in delicate and complex mechanisms such as the gearbox of a helicopter. An example of a high-tech product is in fact the UFI Filters oil filter for the main rotor lubrication circuit supplied to the most important helicopter manufacturer in Europe (Leonardo).
