Cambridge has the capability to vacuum braze components from a few millimetres up to maximum size of 1500x1500mm. The dedicated unit has acquired a reputation for providing a high quality rapid turnaround service to customers in motorsport, aerospace, chemical processing, medical equipment and for the oil, gas and power industries.
Already accredited to the general aerospace standard AS9100, we intend to improve the scope for more aerospace work by extending the Cambridge Nadcap approval for coating to embrace both heat treatment and brazing.
Additional space in the new department will provide dedicated build and test areas. Staff were relocated to the mezzanine level planning office in March, with work on the ground floor production area to follow. These works were completed and fully operable by April.
Andy Fox, who is project managing the upgrade noted, “We have created a very skilled and capable unit. The development will enable us to build on this, future proofing the operation and preparing it to provide a service of even higher quality to take on more elaborate and challenging fabrication work from aerospace and other areas of advanced engineering.”
