Automated machines at Brompton

This film looks at why automated machines, such as a CNC machine, are used in the production of Brompton bicycles. The need for space has resulted in the manufacture of some parts being sub-contracted, which can create quality control issues.

What is 3D printing?

This video provides a great overview to 3D printing, looking first at different ways of manufacture, before explaining the 3D printing process. The video is presented by the Head of the Institute for Manufacturing, Professor Tim Minshall, and would well as an introduction to 3D printing or as a revision video...

3D Scanning

This video from Boxford demonstrates 3D scanning and reverse engineering of products using a 3D scanning machine. The 3D scanning machine is shown followed by the object, an ornamental cat, which is to be reverse engineered. Full 360 degree laser scanning of the ornament is performed. The scanned object is then...

Lean manufacturing

This film looks at how Brompton Bicycle introduced a system of lean manufacturing to manage production. This enables them to eliminate the waste by looking at every aspect of the design from the customer’s point of view and also reducing lead times. The film also explores the...

Approaches to Active Learning

Produced by the Learning and Skills Improvement Service (LSIS), these video clips look at how active learning approaches can be taken to the teaching and learning of mathematics with post-16 students. Clips look at: * How the interaction between learners and their peers can enhance their own understanding of new...

Pegasus

This resource from Boxford facilitates the manufacture of a 3D figure of a Pegasus from sheet material. This could be used as an exemplar for a project to design and make a ‘flat pack’ 3D item or to demonstrate the capabilities of a CNC laser cutter. It includes the CAD files for each of the component parts of the...

4th Axis Machining

This video from Boxford demonstrates 4th axis machining to create an ornamental artefact. The full designing and making process is shown from a CAD design through to a finished product. Firstly the product is designed in a 3D modelling CAD package such as Pro/Desktop. It is then exported in STL format. Next the...

3D Scanner Demo

This video from Boxford demonstrates the use of a Next Engine 3D scanner. The scanner is introduced along with the software needed to work alongside it. A mechanical part that is to be scanned and reproduced is shown. ScanStudio software is then opened and different scan modes are introduced. The object is then...

250 Metal Turning

This video from Boxford demonstrates steel turning using a CNC machine. The full designing and making process is shown from a CAD design through to a finished product. Firstly the CAD design for a metal screw in part is produced using LatheCAD software. CAM processing then takes place and software is used to...

190 Steel Machining

This video from Boxford demonstrates steel machining. The full designing and making process is shown from a CAD design through to a finished product. A 2D CAD file for a 190 logo is designed using Techsoft Mill Design. CAM processing then takes place and the routing process is simulated using software. An...
