New Bespoke Anodising Plant For Watsons Anodising Ltd, Barnsley

GNB Industrial Power, a supplier of industrial batteries and management, engineers and product support team who can now perform the necessary work on explosion-protected batteries

A new Anodising plant was installed in January 2014 at Watsons manufacturing site to replace their 30 year old manual Anodising plant with a fully motorised semi-automatic system. A custom design was formulated to meet Watsons requirements which included an integral sealing tank to increase capacity and quality. The new plant was constructed off site and was dry run and tested prior to shipping in one piece there by cutting down assembly time on site. The plant itself incorporates the following features: Stainless steel work bars and seal tank - Lead lined anodising tank - 400kg Lifting capacity 30kw Stainless steel heaters controlled by solid state relay (no contactors) in seal tank Inverter controlled travel speeds - Pressure pumped water system with vacuum break - Fully adjustable air agitation system - Heavy duty cradle frame construction. Established in 1957, Watsons Anodising Ltd offer full manufacture and contract anodising from their modern facility in Barnsley. Chemical etching, screen printing, anoprinting, laser cutting, precision engineering, general fabrication, plating and stove enamelling are just some of the services they offer. Watsons supply high quality industrial graphics, including signs, labels, nameplates, control panels, customised brackets and enclosures to all types of industries including Auotmotive, Surveillance, Oil & Gas, Agricultural, MOD, Blue Chip, OEM’s and trade customers to private individuals.

Akramatic is exhibiting at Subcon 2014 off the back of a record year for business and expects that this will continue in 2014-15 and beyond. In anticipation it has invested in new equipment including an Amada 100 tonne 3 m press brake, NC tube bender and a new 7.5 tonne delivery vehicle. LCL Electronics has invested in a super-fast I-pulse M20 SMT placement machine that allows it to place components of any shape or size on boards up to 1.5m long. The machine offers several unique features and the largest board handling capability on the market. Longton Light Alloys not only offers aluminium and non-ferrous castings, machining and finishing, it can also draw on the strengths of its sister company Gladstone Engineering to offer a complete design, development and manufacturing services for complex projects including special purpose machinery. Exhibitor TM Engineers, one of the UK’s foremost experts in large part precision machining and fabrication, has manufactured a massive crane for the Devonport Royal Dockyard. The RAH ( Reactor Access House) Crane, one of the only Class 1 Nuclear structures to be built in the last 30 years, was manufactured on behalf of Babcock International Group and the Ministry of Defence. Cabletec is a leading UK manufacturer of metal braids and bonding leads for applications in the aerospace, defence and industrial markets. It also has manufacturing capabilities to produce complex, high performance, customised electromechanical assemblies. WLR is responding to evolving customer demands with

an ongoing programme of investment in manufacturing technology. Significant recent investments include a Matsuura MX520 5-axis vertical machining centre, a HAAS ST40 lathe with a 15” chuck and 105mm through bore capacity, an Ocean River CNC EDM machine and an Objet Eden 3D printing system. OGM is just starting production of mouldings for a new capillary blood sampling device for a world-leading diabetes care company. After a two year build-up and some seven months of project is now entering the performance qualification stage with a number of 100,000 run batches to be completed before volumes build up to the projected 500,000 production batches later this year. Specialist component manufacturer Titan, is coming to Subcon to showcase the capabilities in design and production made it a supplier of choice for the Bloodhound SSC world land speed record project. At Subcon Arrival Electronics is launching Mi-embedded, a design solution which gives customers their own semicustomised embedded board. For just £6,000 Arrival will design the board and supply four pieces in just five weeks. KimberMills, the Midlands-based Forgings Group has seen a 30% rise in turnover during the past two years, largely at the expense of Far Eastern competitors. Growth has come from across all sectors including automotive, oil & gas and defence. 2013 was the first time Timsons have exhibited at the Subcon Show and it has been working hard to respond to customer feedback and requirements. One of these requirements was an accredited quality system to back up the in house 100% inspection of components before dispatch. This is now well underway with the appointment of an independent consultant who will assist Timsons to become fully certified to the requirements of ISO 9001 2008.

During this time it has worked closely with engineers to develop the engineering design of the system to improve the construction process and provide a better solution for the customer.
