United Kingdom : Delcam s aerospace software and services on show at AIRTEC

The British broadcaster BBC is yet to determine the method and mechanism it will use to select its 2014 Eurovision Song Contest entry and representative. Further details regarding UK’s 2014 Eurovision plans will be released in due course. In 2013 Bonnie Tyler was selected to represent the United Kingdom via an internal selection with her entry Believe in me. The United Kingdom debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1957 and has won the event a total of 5 times (1967, 1969, 1976,19881 and 1997). The UK also holds the record of being the country with the most 2nd places in the contest , achieving the runner up position a total of 15 times. We must not forget that the United Kingdom also holds the record of hosting the contest a total of 8 times: London 1960, 1963, 1968, 1977, Edinburgh 1972, Brighton 1974, Harrogate 1982 and Birmingham 1998. The UK has only missed one contest since their debut in 1957, notably the 1958 Eurovision Song Contest. The Brits have been competing in Europe’s favourite television show religiously every year since 1959. Sweden, Denmark , Finland , Norway, France, Albania , Iceland, Ireland, San Marino, Georgia , Switzerland, The Netherlands, Estonia , Malta, Russia, Germany, Austria , FYR Macedonia , Montenegro, Belgium , Spain ,United Kingdom and Latvia have all confirmed their participation at the forthcoming Eurovision Song Contest next year in Denmark .

Who will follow into Bonnie Tyler’s footsteps and represent the United Kingdom at the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest?

These services can help aerospace companies whenever they need to increase productivity, to reduce lead times or to improve quality and consistency. The range of support from Delcam Professional Services is mainly intended to help any company whose own engineering resource is needed to maintain its existing operations. The services provided can vary from supplying extra design and programming resources when existing staff are overloaded, through to developing dedicated software to automate existing manufacturing methods or to establishing completely new turn-key processes for the manufacture of novel designs. Recent developments using Delcam software include a novel five-axis machining method, programmed with the company s PowerMILL CAM system, for the creation of “fir-tree profiles in components for turbo machinery, and the programming, with Delcam s unique adaptive machining technology , of a new hybrid machine from Hamuel Maschinenbau for the remanufacturing of high-value metal components, such as turbine blades. The novel method for the creation of “fir-tree profiles was developed in partnership with Iruba, a German provider of engineered solutions, and machine-tool manufacturer Hermle. It allows these complex shapes to be produced on milling machines, such as the Hermle C60 five-axis machining centre, rather than having to use specialist broaching equipment. The use of PowerMILL s trochoidal strategies to program the operation gives a number of benefits, in particular high material removal rates with lower, and more consistent, cutting forces. The Hamuel hybrid machine combines five technologies in one unit five-axis CNC milling, laser cladding, robot polishing, inspection and laser marking. Any of these processes can be combined, as required by the particular project. The equipment costs only a fraction of the price of a multi-machine repair cell, as well as saving on floor space. Using a hybrid machine, it is possible to remove the damaged area of a turbine blade by milling off the worn material and then build the material back up using the cladding technology . A second machining operation, using high-speed five-axis milling, then produces the final shape, with a smooth transition between the original part and the new material. Polishing and laser marking can be undertaken to complete the component, if required. In-cycle part inspection, using Delcam s adaptive machining software, provides feedback to orientate the parts, assess defects, and ensure accuracy throughout the various stages.

Hyde Marine Names Cammell Laird Installation Partner in the United Kingdom

The most recent installation was a complex retrofit in June 2013 of a HG1000X onboard the RFA’s Fast Fleet Tanker “Wave Ruler” at Cammell Laird’s Birkenhead yard. According to John Platz, President, Hyde Marine, the partnership agreement means that the Merseyside, UK-based Cammell Laird is ready to install Hyde GUARDIAN BWTS systems for a wide variety of vessel types. We are pleased to partner with Cammell Laird because of its commitment to innovation in the maritime industry, as well as for being a cutting edge engineering specialty company that is focused on meeting the needs of customers, such as the Royal Fleet Auxiliary, said Platz. We are excited about the opportunity to work with Cammell Laird to continue the ongoing growth of the Hyde GUARDIAN Ballast Water Treatment System across the United Kingdom. The Hyde GUARDIAN BWTS process uses efficient filtration and ultraviolet disinfection to treat ships’ ballast water to prevent the spread of invasive species from port to port. In April 2013, Hyde GUARDIAN became one of the first BWTS to earn Alternate Management System (AMS) approval from the United States Coast Guard (USCG). It also received International Maritime Organization (IMO) Type Approval in April 2009 and has Type Approvals from several Class Societies. Tested and validated at the Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research (NIOZ), one of the most challenging ballast water test facilities in the world, the Hyde GUARDIAN BWTS ultimately became the first BWTS accepted into the U.S. Coast Guards Shipboard Technology Evaluation Program (STEP), which facilitates the development of effective BWTS technologies for vessel owners seeking alternatives to ballast water exchange. We are looking forward to continuing our partnership with Hyde Marine as we work together to ensure shipowners and operators have access to one of the industry’s leading ballast water treatment technologies,” said Rob McBurney, Commercial Director of Cammell Laird. “Hyde Marine’s commitment to providing superior service and support will drive continued success for Cammell Laird clients as the industry works to comply with pending ballast water treatment requirements.
