Developing BASELINE, Rapid Machine Tool Verification at the Nuclear AMRC

Over the past 12 months, INSPHERE have been working with the Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre at their world-class facilities in Rotherham to develop BASELINE, a new system that can verify large machine tools in less than one hour.

Industry and Innovation at the Nuclear AMRC

The Nuclear AMRC is part of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, an alliance of seven leading manufacturing research centres backed by Innovate UK. It is a centre that successfully combines academic innovation with industry expertise to help manufacturers improve capabilities and performance along the supply chain. 

The centre’s Soraluce FX12000 horizontal machining platform, which is capable of working on components up to 12 metres, is the largest of its kind within the UK available for collaborative R&D. INSPHERE have put the Soraluce machine through its paces and conducted a series of large-scale trials to test the BASELINE system and also benchmark its technology against current market offerings.

BASELINE Launch Event at the Nuclear AMRC

On March 21st, INSPHERE will be returning to the Nuclear AMRC to launch the BASELINE system. The event will include technical presentations from INSPHERE, Nuclear AMRC, and equipment provider Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence. There will also be shop floor demonstrations of the BASELINE technology. The event is free to attend but spaces are limited.

INSPHERE launches BASELINE at Nuclear AMRC

On March 21st, INSPHERE will be launching a new rapid machine tool verification system at Nuclear AMRC where the company have been working over the past year to test and develop the system on the centre’s largest machining platforms.

BASELINE is a system that reduces machine downtime and material scrap rates. The technology provides full verification of a large machine tool in less than one hour, facilitating regular checks and providing confidence in performance prior to cutting metal. BASELINE supports a move towards adopting Industry 4.0 philosophies. Its development has been made possible with funding from NATEP and access to the world-class facilities at the Nuclear AMRC.

The launch event will include technical presentations from INSPHERE, Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence, and Nuclear AMRC. There will also be shop floor demonstrations of the BASELINE technology.

INSPHERE's NATEP-funded BASELINE Project

INSPHERE have a long history of using measurement data to improve both product quality and manufacturing productivity in aerospace and other advanced manufacturing sectors. As a company, we place a strong focus on innovation and making full use of emerging opportunities to help drive a revolution in high-value manufacturing, and to make the promise for Industry 4.0 a reality.

In 2017, the National Aerospace Technology Exploitation Programme (NATEP) awarded funding to INSPHERE to complete an 18-month project to develop BASELINE, an original concept for a rapid verification system for large machine tools. In a new article, NATEP discusses the developments of the project and the system that will reduce machine verification downtime from five days to as little as one hour. You can read the article here and if you’d like to know a bit more, contact us for further discussion.
