Job completed for @RemapUK

A very busy year so far! More exciting updates coming soon, but in the meantime here is a job completed for a local client of @Remap – our client, who suffers from neuropathy, found that he was in danger of tipping his already modified armchair over when getting up. This simple safety device works in conjunction with the existing modifications to prevent tipping. And a great man to work for – always a bonus.

In conjunction with LimbCare, we recently helped out a REMAP colleague with the design of some new 3D printed lightweight joints and clamp for his superb (award-winning!) concept, which allows double amputees, both above and below elbow, to begin to feed themselves as soon as possible following surgery.

Drone motor mount design completed for Inertial Stability Systems #TOTAL #EAGE

A very fast turnaround was required on this job, to be completed in time for display on TOTAL’s stand at the EAGE Conference in Paris.

Great podcast from The Infinite Monkey Cage @TheMonkeyCage

We always get excited here at Major Engineering Towers when engineering gets a specific mention. Listen to the whole thing, however at 13 minutes in there is some very interesting discussion on the link between the popularity of tinkering at home, and the shortage of good engineers.

Recommended podcast from @themonkeycage discussing @BLOODHOUND_SSC

Always thoroughly enjoy the podcasts from The Infinite Monkey Cage, but particularly enjoyed the bias towards engineering in this one. I also couldn’t help but smile when the Eurofighter was mentioned, as I was working on its ejector seats components at that very moment.

I don’t mind admitting that I have never been hugely interested in this project. However, I think the arguments raised during the discussion are valid. Yes there are some useful technologies coming out of it – hybrid rocket engines for example. But if nothing else, this project has the potential to inspire the next generation of engineers. In my humble opinion, this in itself is worth far more than any new technology.
