Overview of success factors

  • Significant advantages

    The entire design and construction of all the production equipment is carried out in-house, allowing the greatest possible freedom in the production lead-times regarding the customer’s specifications. A variety of tests on the main frame can be simulated on the factory’s own test bench. The quality of the technical features and welding are subjected to a thorough 100% inspection when they leave the production line. Every welder employed by WP has EN-287-1 qualifications, carries out both robotic and manual welding and is fully responsible for the quality of each and every frame that he makes.

  • Top performance

    The stability of the main frame can be seen as the heart of the bike and is the decisive factor in the subsequent performance. The main priority at WP is an  efficient welding sequence which minimises weld delay and at the same time maximises the dimensional accuracy, the welding quality and therefore the stability of the frame. In the production we use CNC tube-bending machines which can execute three high precision bendings in sequence. Post-treatment is therefore rarely necessary and any production tolerance specified by the manufacturer can be achieved or surpassed. The extreme precision of the single elements optimises the fitting accuracy in further stages of assembly, saving valuable production time as a result.

  • Better- from WP

    WP is the only firm to have over 30 years of experience and know how from the racing sector being continuously and directly applied to the optimisation of serial products. Every single frame produced in series undergoes a 100% inspection after the bending process and meets the high quality requirements for racing. In other words, every frame that we produce is of the same standard as the parts made by WP for the winning motorcycles of over 200 World Championships.
