Fresh from its TV appearance on BBC2’s Robot Wars 2017, Emsea highlighted its cutting services at Southern Manufacturing 2017. The company sponsored Aftershock, the robot which made its debut appearance on the TV programme in March.
In order to give Team Shock the best chance of winning the title of Robot Wars Champion 2017, sponsor Emsea, cut Team Shock’s precision parts on its Waterjet Machine, Flows Flagship Mach 4, the most technically advanced machine in the industry, says the company.
The cold cutting process produces accurate parts without any heat damage and can cut through materials up to 200mm thick with a geometric accuracy of ±0.1mm.
Chris Sweet, director at Emsea observed: “Whilst some of the parts could have been cut on our laser machines we felt that due to the nature of the material and the purpose of the venture the waterjet would provide the very best quality cut and finish.”
“We are excited to be a part of Team Shock and wish them luck in their endeavour to become the ultimate fighting bot!”
Sweet added “We are always keen to promote engineering and projects such as Robot Wars are a fantastic way to get people inspired and may help to fill the skills shortage in the future”.
