The actors of the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) are rightfully celebrated around the world. However, the engineers, artists and craftsmen who build the stunning stage sets deserve just as much recognition. Alan Bartlett, Head of Technical Design at RSC, explains how his team are able to build visual wonders with the help of component parts suppliers like WDS Component Parts Ltd.
WDS Component Parts Ltd. has launched a new range of free-running castors and wheels that cover a range of sizes, load capacities and materials.
Engineering components manufacturer WDS Component Parts Ltd. has added new options to its range of leveling feet, so is now able to offer over 2,000 different variations.
Engineering components supplier WDS Component Parts Ltd. has expanded its offering of toggle clamps, adding new sizes at both the small and large end of the range, plus filling in some intermediate gaps and introducing new design variants.
Customer feedback has led engineering components manufacturer WDS to extend its range of anti-vibration mounts, with marine engine mounts and cone cab mounts.
Engineering components manufacturer WDS Component Parts Ltd. has expanded its range of detent pins by developing a range of knobs that aid handling, particularly in adverse conditions.
Demanding engineering applications require extraordinary solutions based on exceptional components. This is the principle that drives WDS Component Parts Ltd. to constantly expand its range of stainless steel parts.
In most engineering sectors you have to pay some attention to the possibility of corrosion. But it is different for marine engineers, who must eat, sleep and dream about the subject, while also maintaining a laser-focus on robust reliability to avoid failures at sea. Engineering components supplier WDS Component Parts Ltd. puts a lot of effort into understanding and supporting the special requirements of sea-going engineers and makes its full service available to them.
Design engineers cannot possible keep up to date with every new product and component that is released onto the market. John Marshall of component manufacturer and supplier, WDS Component Parts Ltd., says he and his colleagues understand this, so have developed services and support to aid component selection and specification.
The aerospace industry is renowned for its focus on excellence. As such its suppliers must meet exacting quality standards and strict cost targets, while also ensuring adherence to strict delivery schedules. Darren Gilligan, an aerospace product specialist at engineering component manufacturer and supplier WDS Component Parts Ltd. looks at some of the special requirements of the industry.
