News: Aerospace is hot topic at Rotherham event


Some of the world's biggest suppliers to the aerospace industry met in Rotherham to discuss the latest developments in machining. The one-day seminar was one of the first to be staged at Dormer Tools' new site within the Advanced Manufacturing Park and it brought together leading organisations to talk about how they can respond to an ever-changing sector. Topics included future trends in the aerospace industry, machine tool developments, machining strategies for aerospace applications, developments in aerospace tooling and aerospace tooling solutions. The presentations showed how suppliers can achieve higher productivity, better quality and faster delivery. Peter Dickin, marketing manager at CADCAM specialist, Delcam, said: "The aerospace industry has always demanded the highest levels of quality and consistency from its suppliers. "Machining technology has progressed faster than ever over recent years. In the current economic environment, the added requirements for more cost-effective production and shorter lead times have become even more important. "To meet these demands, suppliers must ensure that their machining operations are as efficient as possible." David Goulbourne, development manager for drilling products at Dormer, added: "We were delighted to work with organisers Delcam to stage this event and bring together key people from across the country to discuss developments in aerospace tooling. "It gave us an opportunity to highlight the work we are doing to create and provide hole-making solutions for a variety of customers, from looking at the material of the tool through to its geometry design." Dormer hope the seminar will become the first of many at the AMP and Rob Smith, training and technical manager explained to delegates how Dormer is looking to create up to 10 new products a year for focus sectors like the aerospace industry.
