TT Racing Fan Wins Honda Jacket From Edgecam

July 2, 2014 -- An Isle of Man TT motorcycle racing fan won the perfect prize in a competition from CAD/CAM software solution Edgecam – a Honda Race Team jacket, signed by professional rider John McGuinness.

Paul Kingscott, Facilities Manager at Moog Aircraft, was presented with his prize by Edgecam Area Manager Justin Talboys-Cotton.

Moog manufacture components for commercial and military aircraft for Boeing, Bell and Airbus, and are market leaders in flight controls on military airframes and rotorcraft such as Eurofighter and Agusta Westland. Having recently relocated their 450 employees to a new multi-million-pound facility in Wolverhampton, they have seven Edgecam licences for milling and mill/turn, programming more than ten Matsuura, DMG and Okuma machines.

“I love to watch the Isle of Man TT race, and the Superbikes, so this is a perfect prize for me, especially as the jacket is signed by Honda team rider John McGuinness.”     Honda Racing are an Edgecam business partner, and machine aluminium motorbike components at their Louth facility, using Edgecam. Honda donated the signed jacket for Edgecam to use as a prize, as a thank you for their continued support.

Edgecam’s flexibility for fast change has proved to be of immense value to Honda’s needs to produce small quantities of specialist components in an extremely fast process of design, development and testing on the race-track, then, if necessary, re-development or further refinement. The criteria for components are function, cosmetic appearance and weight, along with the need to get them right first time.

Thanks to Edgecam’s associativity such changes can be made swiftly and accurately. The machining part files are associative to any changes made to the 3D model, so if the model is changed, so are the Edgecam toolpaths.

Part of the Vero Software Group, Edgecam is a leading CAM solution providing productivity, reliability and flexibility. Vero has direct offices in the UK, Germany, Italy, France, Japan, USA, Brazil, Netherlands, China, South Korea, Spain and India supplying products to more than 45 countries through its wholly owned subsidiaries and reseller network.
