We’re Engineering Future Success with the Appointment of New Applications Engineer, David Mathias
We have continued our positive start to 2018 after expanding our team with the appointment of Applications Engineer, David Mathias.
David graduated from Sheffield Hallam University in 2016 with a BEng Hons degree in Mechanical Engineering, which stood him in good stead by helping him to secure his first role as a Design Engineer with FREM Group Screens – a company specialising in office furniture solutions.
After 14 months at FREM, David has joined our Engineering Team and will be reporting into company Director Matt Warne and Senior Design Engineer Georgina Hoyle – with the former very impressed by David’s expertise at interview stage.
“David demonstrated a clear understanding and sound knowledge of the skills we require for an Applications Engineer – with transferable skills and experience that he will be able to implement to good effect at Camloc in order to benefit our customers and our internal product development,” said Matt Warne.
Day-to-day responsibilities for David include supporting the Engineering Team in product development, responding to application enquiries and producing sales drawings. His new role also requires him to test and evaluate products in order to guarantee quality for our portfolio of customers.
David has been impressed with the internal processes and procedures at Camloc, and he values the focus on quality and customer service which sit at the heart of everything the company does.
“Camloc has an ethos that is all about the customer, and manufacturing quality products – while continually investing in its staff, machinery and product development,” said David.
“This position is a great opportunity for me to spread my wings. I particularly like the hands-on side of engineering – such as manufacturing, product testing and developing ideas to find the best solution – so I feel that making the move to Camloc Motion Control is the perfect fit for me.”
Understanding gas struts and why they are crucial components in so many sectors
Gas struts are innovative devices that play a crucial role in providing controlled and smooth motion in a variety of applications. At Camloc Motion Control, we specialise in designing and manufacturing high-quality engineered gas springs, struts and damper solutions tailored to meet the specific requirements of diverse projects. In this blog post, we will delve into the world of gas struts and explore where you can find them in action.
Understanding the life expectancy of gas struts
Gas struts are essential components in various industries, providing a reliable and smooth operation in applications such as aerospace, industrial machinery and specialist vehicles. However, determining the life expectancy of gas struts can be challenging due to various factors. In this blog, we will explore the expected gas strut life and the factors that can influence it.
How gas struts can help prevent accidents and injuries
Gas struts do so much more than allow a wide range of motion control across multiple applications. Their ability to provide movement, maintain durability and support various movements in machinery can help to keep individuals safe. For example, gas struts play a crucial role in preventing accidents and injuries by providing controlled and smooth movements in industrial equipment.
