Dearman expands prototyping capabilities

Dearman, a clean cold technology company, has increased its in-house prototyping capability with the recent acquisition of a CNC milling machine.

In operation at the Dearman Clean Cold Technology Centre, Croydon, UK, the Haas UMC 750 is already having a positive impact on the company’s engineering and R&D activity. The machine enables Dearman to manufacture bespoke components for its clean cold technology on-site, reducing costs and lead times significantly.

"At Dearman, we are working with a world-first technology," explained Nick Owen, chief technology officer. "The CNC machine has enabled us to take control of the whole engineering process, and the capacity to machine parts to our own specification means that we have been able to accelerate our projects. From innovation and design, through to manufacture and integration, we are seeking to make improvements and efficiency gains with every iteration, to ensure that the end product is of the highest standard. This important asset supports the company’s drive for excellence, and will play a large role as we start to launch field trials, bring more complex technologies online later in the year, and develop additional applications."

Last year, the company announced that its second-generation engine had been commissioned. This new engine is stated to be 30% lighter, 30% smaller and 30% more efficient than its predecessors. The new engine is scheduled to commence testing in the coming weeks at Dearman's technology centre. 

Dearman is developing and demonstrating a suite of cost-effective, zero-emission cold and power technologies that deliver fuel savings across the transport and built environment sectors.
