SolidCAM UK Joins Nuclear AMRC


Feb. 23 – Demonstrating its commitment to the nuclear manufacturing supply chain, SolidCAM UK has become a Tier 2 member of the Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (Nuclear AMRC). Becoming a member of the influential Rotherham-based centre allows SolidCAM UK to become a supplier of choice to the global civil nuclear industry, by being part of the prestigious collaboration of their academic and industrial partners. 

SolidCAM UK, based in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, provides its manufacturing customers with a full powerful suite of CAM modules, including installations, standard and custom Post Processors, training, and full support using state-of-the-art technology.

Jay Shaw, Deputy Machining Group Manager at the Nuclear AMRC said, ‘We see Solidcam as being one of our key manufacturing partners. They are ideally suited to support Nuclear AMRC and our manufacturing partners, with their novel and advanced machining modules such as iMachining. We hope this to be a long and lasting and growing partnership.’

Led by The University of Sheffield, The University of Manchester and a group of industrial partners, the Nuclear AMRC combines university innovation and industry expertise to help British manufacturing companies compete for nuclear contracts worldwide. Having already heavily contributed to the SolidCAM Group’s enormous worldwide user base of 16,500 seats plus, with contracts from small and medium sized engineering and manufacturing companies through to large Aerospace and Automotive organisations, SolidCAM UK are able to provide expertise in world leading CAM technology to Nuclear AMRC’s members. SolidCAM can provide them with modules such as iMachining that allows up to 70% reduction in CNC machining time and also dramatically extend tool life over traditional machining, giving members the technical capability to compete on cost, quality and time to delivery, while meeting the needs of the new generation of nuclear power stations.

Gordon Drysdale, Managing Director of SolidCAM UK said, “We want the UK to be world leaders in manufacturing capabilities including those within the nuclear industry, and we will remain supportive of the Nuclear AMRC for the foreseeable future to ensure this.’

Owing to being a mutually beneficial partnership, the Nuclear AMRC has many benefits for SolidCAM UK as well, including access to world-class research capabilities due to having involvement from companies from all levels of the supply chain, from local industry manufacturers to global industry leaders, therefore gaining a full understanding of what it takes to be the best integrated CAM for SolidWorks. For further information on the Nuclear AMRC visit www.namrc.co.uk.

Founded in 1984 by its Managing Director Dr. Emil Somekh, SolidCAM provides manufacturing customers with a full powerful suite of CAM software modules for 2.5D and 3D Milling, High-Speed Machining, Multi-sided Indexial 4/5 axes Milling, Simultaneous 5 axes Milling, Turning, Advanced Turn-Mill, WireEDM and iMachining. SolidCAM is the leader in integrated CAM and provides the highest level of CAD integration, with seamless, single-window integration and full associativity to SolidWorks and Autodesk Inventor.
