Cranfield Precision sources PCBs from Newbury Electronics

30 June 2015

Collaboration between Cranfield and Newbury resulted in the production of a three board splitter system that can encode in excess of 6MHz.

Who is the client and what is their challenge?

Cranfield Precision is part of the Fives Landis group, and a manufacturer of prototype, high precision, machine tools. 

Stephen Wosley, Systems & Electronics Design Manager at Cranfield Precision, explained more about their work; "Our machines are designed to work to very high specifications, with components being manufactured to accuracies of tens of  nanometre.  We also need to be able to measure precisely not only distance but other variables such as temperature, pressure and voltage. After exploring what was available on the market we decided to manufacture our own solution and this is where Newbury's design expertise and experience of precision manufacture has really shone through." 

How are Newbury Electronics involved?

One of the most recent projects that Newbury Electronics was involved with was the production of a high response encoder splitter box. The best option on the market operated up to 400kHz but Cranfield needed something capable of handling in excess of 1MHz. Collaboration between the two organisations has resulted in the production of a three board system that can encode in excess of 6MHz.

The Client View 

"Working with a UK manufacturer that can provide us with the engineering quality and expertise combined with a real understanding of our needs and a same day response makes a huge difference to our productivity and programmes," said Wosley. He continued; Newbury Electronics has a really good understanding of our requirements and are extremely responsive and helpful, offering guidance and advise on the design elements."
