Above: PurgEye monitor used by Lee in conjunction with the flexible enclosure. This particular monitor is maintenance free and features a large alpha-numeric display and will measure oxygen levels down to 10 ppm. Advanced welding technology has afforded opportunities to fabricate components used in motor sport where safety critical joints need to be produced on a repeatable basis. Recording and data processing of weld and purge gas measurements can be easily undertaken and used for quality control purposes. The early success of this lightweight, high performance car will give encouragement to other manufacturers throughout motor sport and perhaps road vehicles where the need to reduce weight but still retain high strength is desirable.
