Examples of where the products from norelem are used:

Shoulder screws from norelem are used to mount the chassis with the highest level of precision. Previously, chassis components were screwed to the vehicle using standard screws, each connection had a few tenths of a millimetre play. In chassis kinematics in which the components are designed to a hundredth of a millimetre, precision plays a crucial role in fastenings the vehicle's behaviour in simulations can be replicated on the race track.
