Delcam will highlight its involvement in the Bloodhound supersonic car (SSC) project at the 2015 Birmingham Made Me Design Expo. This third event in the series will take place at Millennium Point in the city from 15–19 June and will incorporate the Design Council’s annual summit.

Bloodhound SSC

Bloodhound SSC aims to set a new land-speed record of 1,000mph in South Africa in 2016. Delcam is both an SME sponsor and a product sponsor of the project, supporting the development of the car with its manufacturing software and expertise, and producing some components for the vehicle in its Advanced Manufacturing Facility.

In addition, several Delcam customers and technical partners, including the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre with Boeing in Sheffield, are using the company’s manufacturing software to produce parts for the jet- and rocket-powered racing car.

The component to be shown at Birmingham Made Me is part of the steering support column and so is essential in ensuring that the car remains on course during its world land-speed record attempt. It was produced on Delcam’s Hermle C50 UMT machining centre.

Delcam supplies software and services that help manufacturing companies to maximise their profitability by increasing productivity, improving quality and reducing lead times.
