Added in-house prototyping capability improves Dearman R&D

0

Dearman has increased its in-house prototyping capability with the recent acquisition of a CNC (computer numerical control) milling machine.

In operation at the Dearman Clean Cold Technology Centre, in Croydon in the UK, the Haas UMC 750 is already having a positive impact on the company’s engineering and R&D activity. The machine enables Dearman to manufacture bespoke components for its cutting-edge clean cold technology on site, reducing costs and lead times significantly.

CTO, Nick Owen, said, “At Dearman, we are working with a world-first technology. The CNC machine has enabled us to take control of the whole engineering process, and the capacity to machine parts to our own specification means that we have been able to accelerate our projects.

“From innovation and design, through to manufacture and integration, we want to make improvements and efficiency gains with every iteration, to ensure that the end product is of the highest standard.

“This important asset supports the company’s drive for excellence, and will play a large role as we start to launch field trials, bring more complex technologies online later in the year, and develop additional applications.”

Last year Dearman announced that the second generation Dearman Engine technology had been commissioned. Dearman Engine will begin testing at its tech center.
