Front-to-back manufacturing technologies showcase at Advanced Engineering Show

A team of manufacturing experts is ready to demonstrate the power of the full range of complementary technologies at a much-anticipated industry show.

Across its businesses, the Derbyshire-based Carfulan Group works with top UK manufacturers in multi-sensor metrology, turned-part measurement, 3D printing and tool pre-setting and inspection, empowering customers to improve their production processes and achieve end-product excellence.

On October 31 and November 1, at Birmingham’s NEC, the group will be exhibiting at the 10th annual Advanced Engineering Show, the UK’s largest gathering of OEMs and engineering supply chain professionals.

Visitors to stand P10 can discover for themselves the best-in-class solutions offered by the Carfulan Group, and why its clients include world-leading leading companies in aerospace, automotive, oil and gas, healthcare, education and consumer goods.

Carfulan Group Managing Director Chris Fulton said: “From design through machining to quality control, we work hand in hand with our customers to push innovation boundaries at every stage of the production process, empowering them to make the best products they can in the most efficient way available.

“Our business model is all about providing innovative manufacturing solutions to the market in a way that no-one else can, as we represent four companies with exclusivity in the UK.

“With uninhibited access to unrivalled products, technologies and a highly skilled and knowledgeable team, our position in the marketplace enables us to provide a level of service that others can’t match, resulting in long and lasting relationships with our customers.”

At Advanced Engineering will be OGP UK, SYS Systems, ZOLLER UK and VICIVISION UK.

OGP Vantage 300OGP UK supplies multi-sensor metrology systems which can gauge the characteristics of even the most complex parts quickly and without human error, leading to better quality, reduced scrap and allowing products to be brought into the marketplace faster.

It will be displaying its flagship Vantage 300 at the show – a machine renowned globally for making reliable data collection available in real time, giving manufacturers a competitive edge.

ZOLLER UK, meanwhile, is a specialist in intuitive tool pre-setting, inspection andZOLLER smartCheck management solutions, helping businesses to ensure tools are of the right quality to create accurate and conforming parts prior to machining. This not only reduces down time but also increases tool life, saves on tool costs and eliminates scrap.

Its smartCheck is a high-performance tool inspection and measurement machine designed for all cutting tools, enabling efficient checking before and after the sharpening process to ensure absolute precision and documented results. It guarantees productivity gains from CNC grinding machines.

As a UK Stratasys platinum partner, SYS Systems has been at the forefront of the 3D-printing movement for more than a decade, supplying, installing and supporting the full Stratasys product range.

Stratasys F270It will be bringing along a printer from its F-Series to Advanced Engineering, a machine combining powerful Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) technology with intuitive GrabCAD design-to-print software to provide the most versatile and intelligent rapid prototyping solution available.

VICIVISION M306 Finally, VICIVISION UK will have an M306 on the stand, a high-performance optical and non-contact measuring machine for cylindrical parts such as shafts, valves, screws and threaded inserts.

The Carfulan Group recently announced that it had taken ownership of a fifth company after it was appointed the first worldwide partner of Israel-based XJet.

Under the name XJ3D, it will supply XJet’s trademarked NanoParticle Jetting technology, which is capable of 3D-printing geometrically complex ceramic and metal parts quickly, safely and with unmatched quality, breaking new ground in the additive manufacturing industry.
