Why our customers trust us 

Our customers return to us again and again because of the way that we do things here at Camloc. Our team of talented engineers takes their work that they do incredibly seriously. That means that from the moment we have the brief from our customers, they work tirelessly to create a sample of the product, before testing it thoroughly, making any tweaks that are needed before testing again and sending it out for delivery. It’s a tough job, but luckily for us, our team loves this kind of thing. 

 

“Camloc specialises in challenging applications which can often require a bespoke solution due to extraordinary requirements such as environmental concerns, specific motion control, heavy loads, locking positions, and all manner of industry specifications and standards which must be met. This can often result in designing completely new solutions using our industry expertise to meet the customers exact brief – we don’t just offer what fits us we offer what fits you. This means that our engineering ability is continually challenged in design, testing, manufacturing, process improvement, project management and budgeting.” – David Mathia, Designer at Camloc Motion Control.

What should I do if I have any questions once the product has been delivered?

What’s been the most challenging request you’ve had from a customer? 

We’ve had many challenging requests from customers over the years, so picking one standout example is extremely difficult. Our customers like to challenge us in many ways, from creating high precision dampers for surgical robots to others that have resulted in brand new product lines – the Stop & Stay+ range was developed specifically from a customer enquiry.  

However, I think the most technically demanding product lines we’ve worked on have been in the blast mitigation arena where not just technical capability, but functionality and reliability are pushed to the absolute limit. Whether it be in this, or the medical sector the satisfaction comes from knowing that we can genuinely say our products help save lives.
