THE NEXT GENERATION

IN-COMM TRAINING CHOSEN TO HELP DELIVER NEW

APPRENTICESHIP LEVY TRANSFER FUND

In-Comm Training has been named as one of

the training providers for a new skills fund

launched by the West Midlands Combined

Authority (WMCA).

The Aldridge-based firm, which operates

three technical academies in the Black

Country and Shropshire, will be galvanising

SMEs and larger firms to make the most of

unspent Levy money currently available in

the region.

The aim is to encourage employers to take

on more young people in advanced

manufacturing, digital skills and STEMrelated

apprenticeships as the area looks to

cement its position as a global leader in

engineering.

In-Comm Training’s employer-led

approach to skills was one of the main

reasons it has been chosen, with its team of

expert advisers and trainers now responsible

for supporting potential users of the fund to

meet the criteria and recruit the right young

people.

Bekki Phillips, Managing Director at In-

Comm Training, commented: “Any new

programme that encourages greater

adoption of vocational learning is welcomed,

especially one that specifically targets STEM

courses.

“We have to raise the region’s

productivity and using unspent Levy money

to offer apprenticeships to 16-18 year-olds is

a great, long-term way of ensuring we are

growing our workforces of the future.”

She continued: “More than 146 standards

are available, covering science, technology,

engineering, manufacturing, construction

and digital - all the skills we are going to

need if we are going to exploit the UK’s

strengths.

“The new fund will essentially remove

the 5% fee that SMEs normally have to pay to

take on an apprentice, making it easier to

invest in young people.”

The West Midlands Combined Authority

covers a population of 4.2 million across

Greater Birmingham and Solihull, the Black

Country, Coventry and Warwickshire and

the Marches LEPs.

In-Comm Training’s proven track record

in delivering apprenticeships, combined

with a £7m investment in its three academies

in Aldridge, Bridgnorth and Shrewsbury, has

given it the perfect platform to be a crucial

partner to the Apprenticeship Levy Transfer

Fund.

THE NEXT GENERATION

THOUSANDS OF YOUNG PEOPLE INSPIRED BY

SCIENCE THANKS TO PIONEERING ENGINEERING FIRM

MORE than 7,500 young people are being

inspired by science over the next two weeks

thanks to a forward-thinking engineering

company.

Children are being treated to the London

Science Museum’s “Out Of This World” show

taking place in Cumbria in an action-packed

fortnight of events.

The shows, which started on September 23,

are organised by the REACT Foundation which

was created by REACT Engineering in 2004, with

the objective of raising the aspirations of young

people and inspiring the next generation of

scientists and engineers.

Celebrating its 15th anniversary this year,

The REACT Foundation now offers bursaries to

Year 11 and sixth form students who are going

on to study STEM subjects at college or

university.

The Foundation held its first science show

back in 2006 when TV science celebrity Jonny

Ball - father of radio star Zoe Ball - presented a

science show to 120 lucky primary

schoolchildren.

After delighted teachers and children asked if

it could be repeated, the annual REACT

Foundation Science and Engineering Days have

grown to such an extent that they now take place

over a fully-booked fortnight across west

Cumbria with more than 84,000 students taking

part since the first show.

Irene McMillan, of REACT Engineering, said:

“The children absolutely love the shows. They

get booked up straight away by the schools. They

are an integral part of the school calendar now.

“Expect bangs, wallops, rocket launches,

plenty of entertainment and excitement,” said

Irene.

“We did have one negative comment one

year….we were told that the kids got too

excited!”

As well as going into secondary schools

across the area the main primary event takes

place over two days at Lakes College, Lillyhall,

Workington on September 24 and 25 with more

than 2,000 primary schoolchildren attending.

This year they will have a special visit to St

Patrick’s School Cleator Moor where Montreal

School students will join them for an explosive

show.

A four-strong team - Ronan Bullock, Anais

Radiere, Ted Hill and Kate Hunter - from the

Science Museum in London, lead the shows and

a series of special workshops during the

fortnight.

Secondary school students from Whitehaven

Academy, Nelson Thomlinson School in Wigton,

and Netherhall School in Maryport will all take

part in a special Water Transport challenge to try

to transport water without using buckets.

The Reactioneers, a group of 16 primary

schoolchildren who meet at REACT’s offices at

Cleator Moor on Tuesday evenings in term times

in sessions manned by volunteers from REACT’s

own team, will enjoy their own Slime Time

Students enjoying the REACT Foundation Science and Engineering Days in previous years.

workshop on September 24. Children with

special needs who attend Mayfield School at

Whitehaven will also enjoy their own Slime Time

workshop with the Science Museum team on

October 1.

The final show of this year’s run takes place

at Millom School on October 4, when children

from Millom School’s feeder primaries will join

their own students at the action packed shows.

The REACT Foundation science shows are

sponsored by E.ON and the University of

Cumbria, with the latter also now spreading the

initiative to schools in Carlisle.

Pete Woolaghan, chair of the REACT

Foundation, said: “The science shows are the

best two weeks of the year - concentrated energy

and excitement from start to finish.

“It’s wonderful to have the University of

Cumbria on board again this year alongside our

longstanding supporters E.ON who run the

Robin Rigg windfarm in the Solway. They have

been tremendous supporters over the years.

“This year’s shows from the Science Museum

have a space related theme to mark the 50th

anniversary of the moon landing and build on

our Space Day event earlier in the year to

celebrate REACT’s 25th anniversary. The shows

are new so I’m really looking forward to the

experience.”

Phil Redfern, managing director of REACT,

said: “It’s wonderful to see the reaction of the

young people to these shows. We hope many are

inspired and excited to find out more about

science.

“Whether when they leave school or

university, they end up travelling the globe or

staying closer to home we hope it opens their

eyes to some of the amazing careers they can

have with science, some with world-leading

innovative businesses right here on their

doorstep.

“It is very rewarding to see the impact and

difference the shows can make to young people’s

attitudes and thinking towards science and

engineering.

“We are passionate about giving young

people the very best opportunities, and are

committed to continuing to build our own

company around the ideas and skills that young

people bring to our business, as well as

supporting initiatives which help the

community.

“It’s amazing, and hugely satisfying to

witness how the charity has grown from 15 years

ago when the REACT Foundation was first set

up to mark the company’s 10th anniversary, and

how now, with REACT Engineering marking its

25th anniversary this year, the science shows

continue to develop and inspire a whole new

generation.

“Credit goes to all the volunteers at REACT,

the fantastic team from the Science Museum in

London, and to the event sponsors for making

the shows bigger and better every year.”

UK PARTNERS FOR GERMAN STURMER GROUP


THE NEXT GENERATION

adi SHAPES FUTURE ENGINEERING CAREERS WITH

ITS FOURTH INTAKE OF PRE-APPRENTICES

A major Birmingham-based engineering firm

has welcomed a fourth intake of young

students on to its pioneering preapprenticeship

scheme.

The 12 pupils, aged fourteen (year 10),

will learn hands-on engineering skills as part

of a successful programme which has seen

nearly 50 students take part since its

introduction in 2016.

The adi Group, based at Kings Norton,

has made significant strides to help tackle

the UK’s skills crisis, already exceeding its

own commitment to having five per cent of

its workforce made up of apprentices by

2020.

In total, nine graduates from its unique

pre-apprenticeship scheme have gone on to

become full-time apprentices at the firm, who

boast a diverse group portfolio that includes

specialisms such as electrical, mechanical,

automation, climate & compressor systems to

name a few.

Commenting on the new intake and

success of the scheme so far, adi Group

strategic account director, James Sopwith,

said: “We’re all incredibly proud of the preapprenticeship

programme here at adi.

“This is something that was the first of its

kind to launch in the UK, and to date we’ve

had some huge successes.

“Not only has it been a launchpad for

nearly 50 students to begin their careers in

engineering at adi, but it is also a fantastic

template for other schools and employers

from right across the region to replicate its

success.

“Engineering continues to be a viable and

in-demand profession, so we’re looking

forward to seeing what else we can achieve

over the next few years with this pioneering

initiative.”

For one afternoon a week for two years,

students get the chance to earn an EAL

accredited qualification through the preapprentice

scheme, which sees the

youngsters undertake a variety of skills such

as fabrication, welding and control panel

assembly.

The programme is run in partnership

with North Bromsgrove High School and

was launched back in 2016 by Birmingham

Northfield MP Richard Burden.

Commenting on the value of the scheme,

North Bromsgrove headteacher Nick Gibson

said: “The pre-apprentice programme gives

our students incredible motivation and really

is the jewel in our offering.

“It has allowed our students to flourish,

igniting their passions and in turn helping to

play a part in developing the next generation

of UK engineers.”

Earlier this year, one of the preapprenticeship

scheme success stories, Abbie

Beaver, was selected for the prestigious

WES50 – a list by the renowned Women’s

Engineering Society, that celebrates the top

50 women engineers in the UK.

In total, 10 female students like Abbie

have enrolled on adi’s programme since it

began, helping to challenge perceptions over

gender stereotypes in the industry.

“An adi apprenticeship helps young

people discover their drive, passion and

enthusiasm in the workplace, regardless of

their gender,” added James.

“These are students that are learning core

engineering skills in a real working

environment, and from a vitally young age.

“Of course, we hope that all 12 of this

year’s intake will become full-time engineers

at adi or another business in time, but I’ve no

doubt that whatever they intend to do postapprenticeship,

they will become a valuable

proposition to any employer across the

region and beyond.”

The adi Group is a multi-disciplined

engineering firm with over 30 specialist

sectors serving household names across the

UK & Ireland.

To learn more about the group’s unique pre-apprenticeship scheme, firms are invited to sample the guide

ETG CELEBRATES 25TH BIRTHDAY WITH SHOWCASE

OF THE LATEST MANUFACTURING TECHNOLOGY

The UK’s leading machine tool supplier

celebrated its 25th birthday in style last week,

when it showcased its latest manufacturing

technologies.

Engineering Technology Group (ETG),

which recently acquired HK Technologies,

threw open the doors of its Wellesbourne

Headquarters to give over 450 industry

delegates the latest insight into the world of

turnkey solutions, with two new product

launches, a UK debut for the Nakamura

MX100 and an in-depth look at the latest

additive manufacturing and wire EDM

machines.

Orders for four new CNC machines were

taken during the two-day event, which was

used to celebrate the firm’s milestone

birthday and to reinforce the growing

demand for ‘lights-out’ manufacturing,

automation and machine tools that offer

world class precision and increased

flexibility.

Sub-contract manufacturers involved in

automotive, aerospace, medical and

renewables were interested in the new

Quaser UX500 twin pallet machine (with 15k

to 24k rpm spindle), the dynamic 5-axis

simultaneous machining power of the bavius

TR80 Machining Centre and the compact

footprint and powerful performance of the

Chiron DZ15 machining cell.

Reinforcing the turnkey excellence focus,

there was also Hyfore workholding,

Filtermist oil filters, Blum-Novotest laser

measuring systems, a Robojob Turnassist

and the latest robot from ABB present.

Martin Doyle, Managing Director of the

Engineering Technology Group, commented:

“We wanted to make a big statement for our

25th and I believe we’ve achieved this,

bringing the latest machine tools, automation

and additive manufacturing technology to

the UK.

“Our customers are telling us they want

more ‘lights-out manufacturing’, machines

that take up a smaller footprint and twin

pallet capability so they can work quicker

and smarter.”

He continued: “Yes, there’s a bit of

uncertainty out there, but firms recognise the

need to stay ahead of the rest of the world

when it comes to technology. By investing in

new solutions that we can bespoke to their

requirements, they can reduce cycle times,

improve lead times and look at taking on

increasingly complex components.”

“We have to aim to be an extension to

their production team and this is our focus

going forward.

“It was also great to see so many of our

technical partners exhibiting their own

unique products and services, including

Hydrafeed, Ceratizit, Bott and Jemtech.”

Industrial Revolution

The ETG Open House gave the company the

ideal opportunity to introduce its new

business HK Technologies to the market,

with technical experts on hand to talk

through Balance Systems, the Mitsubishi

Wire EDM MV12000, Markforged’s MetalX

metal printer and X7 Desktop Series for

composite printing and 3D Systems’ ProJet

MJP 2500 plus that provides bespoke parts

and industry-leading attention to detail.

Gareth Jones, the new Managing Director

at HK, used the event to promote the

importance of educating industry to the true

benefits of additive manufacturing and why

more companies - both large and small - need

to see it as a way of delivering prototypes

and low/medium volume production.

He also highlighted how additive

technology fits into the ETG and Hyfore

portfolio, offering manufacturers quick

turnarounds for bespoke workholding, jigs,

fixtures, soft jaws and robot grippers.

“When 3D printing first burst onto the

scene, the sector got caught in the trap of

making it too mainstream for domestic users,

encouraging a scenario where we’d all own a

printer at home and we’d start making our

own mugs for example,” explained Gareth.

“That’s not the reality. Instead, it needs to

be seen as a next generation production

technology, capable of producing repeatable

quality, quickly and cost effectively. We’ve

got a major task on our hands to get this

message across and, one of our main aims for

the future, is getting the technology out there

and firms using it.”

He concluded: “There are a lot of new

materials being developed and released to

support changing industrial applications, not

to mention the implementation of easy-touse

software. These factors – combined with

the new technology and our internal

technical experts – are helping us deliver

tangible, bottom line results to our

customers. It’s an opportunity the sector

needs to make more of.”

ALUCAST TARGETS NEW AUTOMOTIVE OPPORTUNITIES WITH

£2.25MILLION MACHINE SHOP AND CASTING INVESTMENT

A Black Country manufacturing specialist

has pushed aside the uncertainty of Brexit to

complete a major £2.25million investment

drive.

Alucast has upgraded its casting

capability and opened a new 7,000 sq ft

machine shop to support the growing

demand of its automotive customer base for

lightweight, complex components.

The UK’s leading independent

aluminium foundry can now call upon 20

CNC machines at any one time, with five of

those 5-axis, providing bed sides ranging

from 400mm to 630mm.

This latest equipment, which has been

supplied by the Engineering Technology

Group (ETG), has given it the speed and

precision necessary to meet just-in-time

delivery requirements of existing and future

orders.

The investment will also deliver a 30%

increase in capacity to take on up to £3m of

new projects, not to mention the ability to

reduce lead times and achieve even greater

repeatable quality.

Supported by Sandwell Metropolitan

Borough Council, Black Country LEP and the

Black Country Growth Deal, the machine

shop was officially opened by Aston Martin

Lagonda’s Independent Non-Executive

Director Lord Carrington and Lord Whitby

from Made in the Midlands, with staff,

suppliers, partners and customers in

attendance.

Tony Sartorius, Chairman of Alucast,

commented: “Whilst there are a lot of

challenges to overcome in the current

automotive sector, there are also still many

opportunities for suppliers who can build

strategic partnerships with their customers,

helping them to design, develop and

manufacture the lightweight parts of the

future.

“This is what we have been able to do

with Aston Martin and a number of other

luxury automotive producers and, in order to

meet increases in volumes, we have

Alucast Machine Shop Tour Opening (L): (l-r) Lord Carrington opens the new machine shop

with Tony Sartorius (Alucast).

completed our own sizable investment in

creating a world class machine shop.”

He went on to add: “What it gives us is

complete control of the machining process so

that we can cast the part and machine it to the

highest possible standard. Twenty-four

people will be employed in this area,

including operatives, supervisory staff and

an apprentice, with more jobs set to follow

shortly.”

Alucast will use the additional capacity to

provide thin-walled lightweight castings for

Aston Martin in South Wales, as well as new

components for Lotus and low-pressure

work for Morgan.

The new lightweight contracts should see

the business work towards £8.5m sales, with

automotive clients joined by a raft of

customers in agriculture, hydraulics and the

oil and gas industry.

John Swift, Managing Director at Alucast,

continued: “It would be quite easy for us to

let the uncertainty rule our decisions, but that

would be a mistake and mean we lose

ground on our international rivals.

“The £2.25m we’ve invested in the new

machine shop, associated R&D projects and

casting facilities is absolutely vital to keeping

us at the forefront of the supply chain and in

a solid position to continue to grow our base

in the Black Country.

“We have to be proactive in supporting

our clients with their ambitious expansion

plans and this investment does just that.”

Lord Carrington added: “I was delighted

to see first-hand the investment Alucast has

put into its business to support Aston Martin

and other automotive customers. It’s a

perfect example of how the supply chain can

work with car makers to get ahead of the

latest technologies and help deliver lighter

and more efficient vehicles.”

Alucast is part of the Manufacturing

Assembly Network, an eight-strong group of

sub-contract manufacturers and an

engineering design agency who work

together to win orders and share best practice

and resource.

The collective, which enjoys more than

£150m sales and employs over 1600 people,

can offer every engineering discipline

imaginable, including automation and

control systems, forging, plastic injection

moulding, PCB development, precision

machining, high-volume pressings and

welded assemblies.

Its membership also includes Barkley

Plastics, Brandauer, C-MAC SMT, Grove

Design, Kimbermills International, Muller

Holdings, PP Control & Automation and

Ricor.

TOP QUALITY MACHINERY

Manufacturing Machinery World, November 2019 19


FINISHING ON A

HIGH NOTE

With so much added value already invested in

a component, the last thing any engineer needs

is to scrap parts due to poorly performed

grinding operations. One of the most popular

ways of avoiding this undesirable situation is to

invest in the latest grinding machine

technologies, which is exactly the case at

Huddersfield-based Meltham Carbide

Precision. The company has become one of the

latest to install a Rollomatic CNC peel-grinding

machine, which is available in the UK from

Advanced Grinding Solutions.

Meltham, which was founded in 1976, and is

owned and managed by Eric Charlesworth, is a

specialist manufacturer of plug gauges and

components such as punches, mould and core

pins, and blank carbide rods for the cutting-tool

industry.

Eric Charlesworth had been aware of

Rollomatic tool grinders for some time, and had

identified a need for grinding his parts to a

higher precision and reducing manufacturing

times.

Having received a demonstration of a

Rollomatic machine, Meltham was attracted to

its pinch and peel method, which ensures that

the grinding operation is always performed

immediately adjacent to where the component

is supported. This capability allows parts

featuring very large length-to-diameter ratios to

be machined easily, with component lengths up

to 400 times diameter being ground without

deflection issues and with diameters controlled

to under 0.002mm.

Just one example of how the machine has

improved efficiency is in manufacturing a set of

10 carbide punches of 6.35mm diameter by

110mm long with a point, radius and three

different diameters, to 5µm tolerances.

“This would have taken us a full day to

manufacture previously, but now, on the

Rollomatic we need just 15 minutes to set up

and around 2 hours to grind,” says Eric

Charlesworth. “The surface finish is also much

better, while the lengths and diameters are all

well within tolerance.”

Elsewhere, a leading European producer of

helical and spur-tooth pinion gears, has selected

a GTG2 gear-grinding centre from Holroyd

Precision to test-grind a range of specialised

gears and tooth forms. Developed purposely for

grinding precision spur and helical gears,

worms, screws, and rotors of up to 350mm

diameter and 160mm gear face width, Holroyd

GTG2 grinding centres use what is described as

a unique machining system to achieve accuracy

to DIN 2 levels and beyond.

Steven Benn, Holroyd’s regional sales

director, says: “The GTG2 was selected for its

versatility, reliability and accuracy – the latter

achieved through high levels of on-board

machine intelligence and a machining process

developed to compensate for helical twist.”

Helical twist occurs when helical gears are

‘lead crowned’ to improve meshing and reduce

noise and wear. Lead crowning varies the

GRINDING & FINISHING

amount of material removed from the flank of a

tooth, across the face width, by causing the tool

motion to deviate from a true helix. The

problem is that ‘in-form’ grinding has the

undesirable effect of causing the profile of the

tooth flank to vary across the face. Particularly

in high precision and low-noise applications,

this variation affects gear-wheel performance

by concentrating loads on particular areas of

teeth during meshing.

GTG2 machines correct this problem by

calculating and controlling additional motions

of the wheel during the grinding operation.

Dedicated surface finishing solutions are

also proving popular across industry, as

evidenced by a new stream-finishing machine

featuring OTEC patented pulse-drive

technology ‘Pulsfinish’ at Bury-based Fintek.

Fintek operations manager Jamie Phillips

says: “The difference Pulsfinish makes to mass

finishing is substantial. Pulse finishing

produces rapid relative motion between the

media and workpiece by quickly changing the

rotational direction of the workholding heads in

a programmed and controlled way. High

acceleration and deceleration increase the

finishing forces exerted on the workpiece,

making it possible to accurately and evenly

deburr round and smooth surfaces from Rpk

0.2µm to 0.1µm, in under a minute.”

Demand also remains high for tool and

cutter grinding solutions. A case in point can be

seen at Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC),

which recently took delivery of an MX7 Linear

grinding centre from Anca. The MX7 Linear is

the fourth Anca grinding centre acquired by

ITC and the fifth such machine to arrive since

the company extended its manufacturing

facility by over 50% in 2016.

Able to process tools up to 300 mm long,

with diameters up to 200 mm, the MX7 Linear

uses Anca LinX linear motors and scales. With

respect to productivity, the latest arrival at ITC

incorporates Anca’s FastLoad-MX automation

system. The FastLoad-MX uses existing

machine axes to ensure a compact design with a

small footprint. Loader movements are kept

simple, allowing ITC to undertake the grinding

of tools in small batch sizes.

New innovations in the tool grinder

segment include the Vollmer VHybrid 360

grinding and erosion machine, which can be

used to produce solid carbide and PCD cutting

tools in a single set up. VHybrid 360 is based on

multi-layer machining, which is implemented

through two vertically arranged spindles. The

bottom spindle can be used for both grinding

and eroding, while the top spindle is reserved

exclusively for grinding.

From a blasting perspective, Guyson

International has created a universal automated

blast system that is based on the company’s

existing Multiblast RSB. The latest system

incorporates roof-mounted servo drives to

provide saturation coverage from the attached

blast guns across the entire rotating table, thus

delivering full blast coverage to all components.

An interesting honing development has seen

Applied Nano Surfaces (ANS) of Sweden enter

into a joint development programme with

Sunnen that is focused on the patented ANS

‘Triboconditioning’ process, which is designed

to reduce friction and wear on a variety of

honed parts and components.

Triboconditioning is a combined

mechanical/chemical surface-treatment process

that uses a machining procedure to level off

surface peaks and apply a friction and wearreducing

compound to the component surface.

Unlike spray coatings, the compound becomes

an integrated part of the component structure at

a nano level. The process is mechanically simple

and, in most cases, can be performed with

Sunnen honing equipment.

As a final aside, Jones & Shipman Hardinge

says it now offers a rebuilding and upgrading

service for its grinding machines, including

those by sister companies in the Hardinge

Group – Kellenberger, Hauser, Voumard,

Tschudin and Usach.

“It’s a service designed to maximise the

lifespan of a machine which, while perfectly

sound in structure and capability, could benefit

from upgrading,” explains Jones & Shipman

Hardinge UK managing director Mike

Duignan. “If you take a universal Kellenberger

Varia for example, a refurbishment and

upgrade to include the latest Fanuc 0i control

with the new Kellenberger menu-based

programming software, could be as much as

25% cheaper than buying a new machine.”

PRODUCTIVITY AND QUALITY BOOST WITH

MAXIMILL 271 MILLING SYSTEM

The ability to achieve cost-effective, secure,

milling, with added process flexibilty is now

a reality thanks to the development of

CERATIZIT’s MaxiMill 271 indexable insert

milling system. The extremely soft-cutting

MaxiMill 271 tool system can be used for a

wide variety of applications and offers a

range of effective options to produce high

quality surface finish. Further advantages are

that the design of inserts and cutter bodies

also enhance tool life and aid effective

removal of swarf from the hot zone.

MaxiMill 271 is designed, therefore best

suited, to applications where face, slot and

chamfer milling are required. To ensure

maximum performance the cutters can be

specified with either a 45° approach angle or

as a high-speed tool with a 17° approach

angle combined with the options of fine and

coarse pitched cutter bodies to provide

maximum application flexibility. Further

extending the MaxiMIl series to meet market

expectation, CERATIZIT has added a 12 mm

insert system to the range. The advantage of

these smaller inserts is that a greater number

can be used, which in turn results in longer

PRIMA POWER SOFTWARE

RANGE RENEWED

Prima Power, one of the leading manufacturers

of 2D and 3D laser cutting systems, and of

machines and automatic manufacturing lines

for sheet metal processing - announces an

expansion of its family of software products

with the introduction of the new FASTSUITE

Prima Power Edition, a product developed by

CENIT for Prima Power. The agreement with

CENIT AG provides for the new 3D laser CAM

to be dedicated to 3D Prima Power laser

machines and distributed globally by the

Italian company.

“With this new product - explains Marco

Pivanti, Prima Power 3D Laser Product

Manager - our machines can show their full

strength. It enables our customers to set up

tool life and higher chip removal rates.

A key feature of the MaxiMill inserts is

that they have eight usable cutting edges,

making the system extremely cost-effective.

In addition, the cutting edge design delivers

a sturdy and robust interface between the

insert and material being cut, consequently

achieving high cutting speeds and the

highest levels of process security. The inserts

form part of the story with the cutter bodies

also playing an important role. As such,

extremely tight tolerances are demanded to

ensure the MaxiMill 271 milling cutters

produce the best face and concentricity

their production processes as quickly and

efficiently as possible because the software is

tailored to their requirements. Both together

offer our customers real competitive

advantages in their daily challenges.”

FASTSUITE Prima Power Edition

manages the entire offline programming

process, from importing CAD data to

optimizing the NC program. The main

strengths are the modern and very userfriendly

interface, the integration of Prima

Power powerful and accurate cycle time

simulator, and the greater simplicity of

configuration and management of licenses,

with a definitely budget-friendly cost.

MEDICAL ENGINEERING

RENISHAW’S SYSTEM SHORTLISTED

FOR HEALTHCARE AWARD

NEW KEMET IN-

LINE CLEANING

SYSTEM

Multi stage aqueous ultrasonic immersion

lines have long been the standard way of

cleaning oils and compounds from medical

implants and you will typically see these

type of lines at the end of every

manufacturing process. For heavily

contaminated parts, this means that filtration

and regular fluid with detergent changes are

needed because even with filtration and

surface skimming, the level of contaminates

soon effects the cleaning results.

For complex parts with blind threaded

holes like stems and femoral parts, there is

always the danger of trapped contamination.

This can be overcome with fixture design, but

lapping, polishing and cleaning experts,

Kemet International Ltd, along with their

partners at Finnsonic, now offer modular

spray tanks, on the Versa Genius ultrasonic

systems, to quickly remove heavy

contamination from any surface, including

hard to reach cavities and holes.

In the past, the only spray option has been

a separate spray washer, but this usually

means the parts have to be manually loaded

from one style of basket to another and then

manually transferred from the spray wash to

the ultrasonic line. With Kemet’s new

modular spray systems, the spray tank

becomes part of an automated line, taking the

same basket all the way through the process

with no additional manual handling needed

at any point.

By having a spray tank as part of the line

it also means that heavy contaminates can be

removed by spraying and then these

contaminates are collected and kept separate

from the ultrasonic tanks, improving greatly

the longevity of the filters and extending the

working life of the detergents. This

dramatically improves productivity and

reduces the day to day cost of running the

line.

Kemet have non foaming detergents

specifically for spray washing meaning they

can supply a full ultrasonic and spray wash

turnkey solution for any challenge.

A novel drug delivery system that aims to

enable pharmaceuticals to bypass the bloodbrain

barrier for the ongoing treatment of

neurological disorders and brain tumours

has been shortlisted for the TCT Healthcare

Award. Global engineering company,

Renishaw, designed and manufactured the

device, which includes a metal 3D printed

titanium port.

It has historically been difficult to treat

neurological conditions due to the bloodbrain

barrier, which acts to protect the brain

against viruses, bacteria and fungi, as it can

prevent drugs from accessing the brain. As a

result, treatments require high doses that can

lead to unwanted systemic side effects. The

neuroinfuse drug delivery system acts as a

mechanism to deliver pharmaceuticals

directly into the brain, so that new

therapeutic regimes can be developed to treat

neurological disorders, using minimal doses

for maximum effect.

The neuroinfuse chronic drug delivery

system is composed of up to four catheters,

which are implanted into a target area within

the brain. The catheters can be accessed via a

3D printed titanium transcutaneous port

implanted behind the patient’s ear. Drugfilled

infusion lines are connected using an

MRI compatible, 3D printed, titanium

application set, which repeatably locates onto

the port. Retractable needles extend through

a septum in the port to enable therapeutics in

The medical device sector is like no other in its

drive for precise and innovative products,

many by their nature being safety-critical, and

therefore having to be made to exacting

quality standards from high-performance

materials that are strong, light, and

biocompatible when implanted.

Many medical device OEMs have a

particular interest in the use of titanium, which

is notoriously challenging to manufacture

using traditional production technologies, its

strength making it time-consuming and costly

to machine, punch, press, or stamp.

Precision Micro, photochemical machining

specialist, has devoted significant resource and

investment into optimizing the process for use

on medical-grade metals such as titanium and

its alloys.

the external infusion lines to be infused

through the implanted catheters. The port

features a roughened surface below the skin

to encourage bone integration and device

anchorage, whereas above the skin, it is

polished to discourage bacterial settlement.

The device holds promise for the

treatment of a range of neurological

conditions and brain tumours. It is currently

being used in a Phase I – II clinical study with

Herantis Pharma Plc, investigating cerebral

dopamine neurotrophic factor (CDNF), for

the treatment of Parkinson’s disease.

ISO 13485 ACCREDITED

PHOTOCHEMICAL MACHINING

Today they say it is the only European

chemical etching company that can mass

manufacture titanium parts and components

for an array of medical OEMs and

applications.

Applying chemical etching to titanium

eliminates stress- and burr-related problems

associated with alternative manufacturing

technologies, and opens up an array of

possibilities in the areas of medical implants.

Key characteristics of etched titanium parts

are the smoothness of surface and openings,

and the elimination of burrs and surface

irregularities. The process is highly repeatable

and economical, with an image of the part

effectively being printed onto the sheet metal

before being selectively etched away in a

single operation. The digital “photo”-tooling

used to print the image does not wear,

ensuring the components produced day one

are identical to components produced a

decade later.

NUCLEAR CHALLENGE WINS PIONEERING UK

COMPANY SECOND QUEEN’S AWARD

AN INNOVATIVE company known for

finding solutions to some of the world’s most

complex industrial challenges has been

presented with its second Queen’s Award.

Createc, which works in civil nuclear,

defence, rail, aerospace, security and medical

sectors all over the world, is in rare company

having now received two Queen’s Awards in

consecutive years.

The Cockermouth-based business, which

has expanded to employ 31 people, is the

only business in Cumbria, and one of only

four in the North-West, which holds two

different Queen’s Awards, having last year

received the award for International Trade..

Createc was presented with its latest

award - The Queen’s Award for Innovation -

at its company conference recently for

developing a 3D radiation imaging device for

mapping nuclear facilities.

The N-Visage ® system, developed by

Createc over the last 10 years, is a unique

approach to mapping radiation in the nuclear

industry that works by locating and

quantifying the cause of radiation -

radioactive contamination - rather than

simply measuring the radiation itself.

The N-Visage ® system uses concepts and

techniques inspired by the medical imaging

industry combined with new imaging

processes to enable fast and accurate threedimensional

imaging of radio-isotopes.

Medical imaging uses the principle of

tomography in which multiple

measurements from outside the body are

combined to produce an image of what is

going on inside the body.

In the nuclear industry, this logic must be

reversed as the instrument has to be

introduced inside the facility it is used to

image, rather than vice versa.

Following this 'inside out' idea to its

logical conclusion Createc discovered the

mathematics behind tomography could also

Createc’s hand-held N-Visage® Recon used

to map and quantify radioactive

environments.

Chief executive Matt Mellor receives

Createc’s Queen’s Award for Innovation,

presented by Claire Hensman, Lord

Lieutenant of Cumbria at the company’s

recent conference at the Inn on the Lake, at

Glenridding. Createc received its first

Queen's Award for International Trade last

year.

be 'turned inside out' to reveal a

mathematical principle suggesting a new

type of imaging device.

This led Createc to develop the N-Visage ®

system, a combination of software and

hardware that provides unique insights for

the managers of nuclear facilities.

Matt Mellor, chief executive of Createc,

explained the motivation for developing the

innovative technology.

“Decommissioning of our nuclear legacy

costs the UK taxpayer billions of pounds

every year. One of the primary drivers of

these costs is the constraint imposed by the

presence of radiation. We recognised that to

reduce the costs of decommissioning it was

essential to provide better data on which to

build plans and make decisions.”

The system was first developed for use at

Sellafield, the UK's largest nuclear facility,

and is now also used at Dounreay in Scotland

and is in regular use across Europe, the

United States and Japan.

Matt said: “The site where N-Visage ® has

made the most difference has been

Fukushima Daiichi in Japan after the

earthquake and tsunami of 2011.

“Following the explosions at these

reactors, the distribution of radioactivity was

a complete unknown, posing a huge hazard

to health and the environment.

“N-Visage ® has been used there for more

than five years now and has played a

significant role in developing the present

understanding of the most inaccessible areas

of the site.

“For three years we have been working to

develop a version of the system for extreme

radiation, and this will be deployed by

Mitsubishi inside the reactors later this year

to generate data which will be used to plan

the critical core decommissioning work.”

Matt says N-Visage ® ’s first commercial

deployment in Sellafield in the UK also saved

the nuclear industry millions of pounds.

Using the N-Visage ® technology it was

quickly established that the planned

decommissioning of a redundant fuel

handling cell could not proceed in the way

that had been assumed.

The fact that Createc was able to discover

this after a few weeks of data-driven

simulation meant Sellafield saved several

years of trial and error to reach this

conclusion.

Matt said: “A primary motivation for the

development of the N-Visage ® system is

improving efficiency in nuclear clean-up

around the world.

“At Createc we believe that by using

exportable technology to solve the challenges

we can both reduce the costs to the taxpayer

and create a stable, technology-driven local

industry that can outlive its original purpose.

“We are extremely proud of the fact that

our head office and the bulk of our

employees are in Cumbria and that our

exports bring sufficient value into the

economy to completely offset the cost of our

contribution to UK decommissioning and

bring millions of pounds per year of

additional revenue into the Cumbrian local

economy.”

Createc has also won awards for

innovation from The Institution for

Engineering and Technology (IET), The

International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)

and Nuclear Decommissioning Authority

(NDA).

WELDING TIPS

WELDING TECHNIQUES EXPLAINED

Welding is essential in the manufacture of buildings, bridges, cars,

aeroplanes, pipelines, power stations and a host of other structures and

objects. There are four main welding techniques used in modern

manufacturing industry and construction, as explained below.

Welding is a process that is rarely seen, oft-forgotten, and largely

invisible – out of sight, out of mind. Disregarding it, however, could also

leave you severely out of pocket. That’s why it pays to take welding and

fabrication seriously.

But this begs a fundamental question – given that there are so many

different welding techniques, which is the right one for a specific

application? There are essentially four main types of welding.

Gas metal arc welding (GMAW) and flux core arc welding (FCAW)

use the same core process – consumable electrode wire is automatically

fed into the welding arc so that users do not need to replace the electrode

as often as they do in, say, shielded metal arc welding (SMAW).

A wire feeder synchronises with the power

supply to deliver wire from a spool at the

appropriate speed. Most electrode wires also

require a shield gas which feeds through the

same cable as the wire. However, with selfshielded

flux-core wire, the wire produces its

own shield gas and protective slag.

The tip conducts electricity through the

electrode wire. A gas diffuser releases the gas

into the nozzle, which then blows out around

the weld puddle to repel contaminants. When

gas, wire and electric power are united

properly, the wire melts steadily into the

workpiece.

The amperage, voltage and wire speed used

in GMAW/FCAW will vary depending on the

metal being welded and the type of wire being

used.

GMAW and FCAW have many different

options for nozzles, tips and diffusers.

Protruding tips and tapered nozzles can aid

welding in narrow spaces while recessed tips

enable higher burn-off rates.

Self-shielded FCAW does not normally

require a nozzle as there is no external shield

gas. However, FCAW with a shield gas is

extremely resistant to atmospheric interference

like wind.

GMAW and FCAW welding tips

Be sure to follow safety and setup

procedures in the owner’s manual.

Varying the wire feed speed/amperage

must be done manually. The thicker the

electrode wire, the higher the wire feed speed

and the more amperage that is required to burn

off the electrode wire.

Increasing wire feed speed and voltage or

increasing wire thickness will increase the rate

that filler metal is deposited to the workpiece.

Most automatic wire systems maintain a

voltage. However, voltage can be varied on a

machine manually to alter the distance between

the tip and the point where wire burns out (the

‘stick-out distance’).

How a user welds can greatly affect weld

properties. The angle of the tip and the travel

speed while welding can alter the weld depth.

Shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) –

commonly known as ‘stick welding’ – is one of

the most widely used welding processes for

joining metal. For stick welding, each electrode

has a metal core that can contain different types

of metal and an outer covering of flux.

The flux coating shields the arc from

contaminants in the air, making the finished

weld stronger. Flux also helps eliminate tiny

holes that can form in the weld (metal porosity),

as well as cracking, undercutting, and spatter.

If an electrode has absorbed moisture, using

an electrode oven to dry it out can restore its

ability to deposit quality welds.

Mastering the following five elements

should ensure successful stick welding:

Current: using the appropriate current (AC

or DC) is imperative.

Length of arc: the distance between the

electrode and workpiece should be the length of

the diameter of the electrode’s core wire.

Angle of electrode: the angle of the electrode

affects weld penetration. Too much penetration

can make the weld brittle and lead to stress

cracking and create holes in the metal; too little

penetration can result in a weak weld.

Manipulation of weld pool: as stick welding

is performed, gas pockets can form which can

compromise weld integrity. These can be

eliminated with a slight side-to-side motion

when welding.

Speed of travel: A weld speed that is too

slow leads to a weld bead that is too large while

a fast weld can lead to a weld bead that is too

narrow.

SMAW welding tips

Take care when handling stick welding

electrodes. Rough handling can cause the flux

coating to break loose from the core wire,

rendering the electrode unusable.

Don’t use an electrode if the core wire is

exposed because the missing flux will cause

welding defects and result in a poor weld.

Keep electrodes dry; wet electrodes can

result in porous, weak finished welds.

During set up, set the amperage on the

welding machine to match what is required by

the electrode being used. If stick welding for the

first time, set the amperage exactly in the

middle of the range suggested for the electrode.

If using DC machine, set the polarity

according to the requirements of the electrode

being used.

Gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW),

commonly known as TIG (or tungsten inert gas)

welding, is a versatile welding process for

joining metal. Both AC and DC power sources

can be used in TIG welding; which is chosen

will depend on the type and thickness of the

metal to be welded.

A TIG torch is an electrode holder that

supplies welding current to the tungsten

electrode and an inert shield gas to the arc zone.

A collet-like clamping device allows adjustment

so that the right length of electrode extends

beyond the shielding gas cup.

TIG welding uses a non-consumable

tungsten electrode and has an extremely high

melting point which means that TIG electrodes

can heat other metals to their melting points

without themselves melting.

Argon and helium are the main shielding

gases used in TIG welding. In some

applications, however, a mixture of the two

gases can prove advantageous. On occasion,

hydrogen is mixed with argon or helium for

special applications.

TIG welding tips

A foot pedal allows the user to adjust the

amperage of the machine without having to

manually turn the amperage knob and is highly

recommended.

Torch position is important in TIG welding.

The ideal position is 90°. However, the weld

pool will be blocked from view by the torch.

Angle the torch 15° to see the weld pool while

maintaining great results.

Some TIG welding requires the use of a filler

metal in the form of a filler rod when there is

insufficient metal present to complete a strong

joint.

Torches may be air- or water-cooled.

GTAW is most commonly used to weld thin

sections of stainless steel and non-ferrous

metals such as aluminium, magnesium,

and copper alloys.

ESAB is a recognised leader in the cutting

and welding industry. From time-honoured

processes in cutting and welding to
