SolidCAM UK to open new technology centre SolidCAM UK ( experienced a massive boost to its business when it moved to its new Barnsley offices in 2012, and it anticipates another growth spurt when it opens its Barnsley Technology Centre.

Managing director Gordon Drysdale says: “We ran very successful monthly seminars at our Technology Centre near Milton Keynes — supported by Romi, as well as tooling and work-holding suppliers. These seminars enabled engineers to see the whole manufacturing process from design through to manufacture of the finished part.

“We out-grew that location. We are now moving the Technology Centre to Barnsley, which will bring us together in one location, so that customers can see our full range of services and meet all the SolidCAM UK team in new and much bigger facilities.

“We make some bold claims for our iMachining, which is particularly effective on hard and difficult-to-machine materials such as Inconel and titanium; with this strategy, we can achieve improvements in speed of around 70% — and
up to 90% in some cases.”

As a Tier Two member of the Nuclear AMRC, SolidCAM UK has taken advantage of its proximity to Sheffield to participate in seminars, and it has been involved in the manufacture of parts for the Bloodhound SSC.

Additionally, it works with Sheffield Hallam University, which has 200 copies of its software. The company will be exhibiting at MACH 2018 (Hall 17, stand 640).
