Exhibition Season

March and April have been busy months in the Cellbond ATD lab. As well as the ongoing product development work there has been much to do in terms of preparation for an Open Day and two international exhibitions. We also welcomed a number of new recruits as the team continued to expand.
The Open Day brought with it new opportunities. For the first time, rather than demonstrating some of the testing techniques that we use, I was asked to give a short introductory talk about the dummy lab. Our visitors included Huntingdon MP, Jonathan Djanogly, the High Sheriff of Cambridgeshire Sir David Arculus, and Deputy Lord Lieutenant, John Bridge, OBE. The new office building is in addition to the existing three sites in Huntingdon and the crash test dummy production facility in Letchworth. It will house key services such as Sales, Marketing, HR, Accounts, Despatch, IT and Purchasing. This has freed up a large section of office space which is being transformed into meeting and planning areas for the Product Development Team, as well as additional desk space to accommodate our ever-expanding team.
In terms of preparing for the 2 international exhibitions, I have been organising all of our sample items. In order for them to clear customs I had to check and list the mass, dimensions & materials used for each piece.
I also had to rebuild a complete Q3 Child dummy (known affectionately to the team as ‘Junior’) before he was sent to Japan, which was a good opportunity to practice the techniques I have been taught so far.
Work on the Flex PLI continued and I was shown how to solder the resistors on to the PCBs before taking on the task myself. That sums up the best part of my role – there is never a day that is the same, and I’m always learning new skills.
