Bidding farewell - rotatives lead retires from AMRC

08 April 2016

AMRC Machining Group technical lead for rotatives and CAD/CAM engineer, Roger Wallis has retired after six and a half years with the organisation.

Roger joined the AMRC in 2009 after many years in the engineering industry in a variety of roles. He was involved in providing design solutions for fixtures to accommodate parts which were subject to residual stress distortion, providing NC Programs and assisting in the technical delivery of the HPDM (High Pressure Disc Machining) project.

Roger delivered further disc packages in a variety of 'difficult to machine' materials including HRSA (Heat Resistant Super Alloys), improving productivity and conformance, whilst controlling the distortional aspects associated with machining forgings.

The staff of the AMRC gathered this morning to thank Roger for all his hard work and we wish him well in his future ventures!
