News: Technology behind next generation turntable to be developed in Rotherham


Sheffield based Wilson Benesch is to develop a "next generation" turntable at the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre in Rotherham, thanks to a research and development grant from Yorkshire Forward. The company combines advanced materials technologies with traditional materials to achieve stylish top end audio products. With the research and development grant the company will take their current knowledge in the field of advanced composites to a new level exploring the use of carbon allotropes molecules, known as buckyballs, in collaboration with the AMRC and the University of Sheffield. Co-founder of Wilson Benesch, Craig Milnes said: "It is very exciting to think, that in 2009, our 20th anniversary year, we might see an interesting outcome that proves the feasibility of the initial concepts and launch a new innovative turntable." Alex McWhirter, Head of Enterprise at Yorkshire Forward said: "Yorkshire Forward is delighted to be supporting Wilson Benesch as they push the boundaries of using advanced materials to manufacture audio systems. "We are committed to encouraging businesses in our region to innovate through a range of activities."
