While you can certainly order what you need from us, especially if your project requires a straightforward motion control solution, we’re more than happy to take on all kinds of projects where the solution is unknown and we need to reinvent the wheel. 

This was the case when a customer recently required a motion control solution that just wasn’t available – we stepped in and delivered a bespoke product for them. This blog will tell you a little more about this journey and how we’re here to invent motion control solutions left, right and centre if that’s what our customers need. 


When a product no longer exists, we fix that 

It all began when a gap in the market opened after a competitor of ours discontinued their line of self-centering dampers. This is a product that is found in a wide variety of applications, such as a seat suspension. With the demand for this specialist product still there, we took it upon ourselves to meet that demand. We see a problem, and we’re keen to be part of the solution. 

During the course of four months, our team researched, designed, built and tested our own self-centering damper – the CamShoc SCD. 

“There’s really nothing quite link sinking your teeth into a challenge, and there’s no challenge quite like designing an entirely new motion control solution,” said Camloc joint-managing director and co-owner Matt Warne. 

“It’s hard work and there are times where you need to head back to the drawing board, but it’s amazing when it all pulls together. We work closely with our customers at every stage, from initial design through to product testing, manufacture and distribution. 

“This also includes product development and innovation, meaning when we see something needs designing and creating, we jump right on to that. It’s at the heart of what we do here at Camloc.”
