The Bloodhound Project Delcam


Delcam is the world's largest computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) specialist software provider. Delcam's range of design, manufacturing and inspection software provides complete, automated CADCAM solutions, to take complex-shaped products from concept to reality. A wholly-owned, independently operated subsidiary of Autodesk, Inc., Delcam software is used by more than 45,000 organisations in over 80 countries.

Delcam Professional Services manufactured the steering support column for Bloodhound SSC, an essential component for ensuring that the car remains on track during its world land speed record attempt. The steering support column was produced in Delcam’s Advanced Manufacturing Facility on a Hermle C50 UMT machining centre, which offers 5-axis machining through the incorporation of a trunion for the A-axis and a rotary table to produce the C-axis. 

Delcam intends to continue supporting Bloodhound SSC by manufacturing further critical components for the vehicle in the build up to the World Land Speed Record attempt, in addition to being an SME Sponsor of the project.
