The Young Engineer of the Year category was of great interest to the judges at the British Engineering Awards, which took place in London. They wanted to find someone who has ‘hit the ground running’; someone who has applied knowledge and innovation to projects, who is motivated and who is acting as an ambassador for their chosen profession. So we are delighted to announce that our bright young Engineer Dan Stamp (pictured left) has won this prestigious award!

Dan joined Kliklok as an assistant engineer in August 2011, having graduated from Bournemouth University with a first class honours degree in Design Engineering. Kliklok sponsored Dan to study for his Masters degree which he successfully completed with a 2:1 last year, and now Dan is applying for Chartered status.

During his four years with Kliklok, he has established himself as a trusted and key member of the engineering team, acting as project engineer for smaller designs and taking on elements of larger projects, in association with senior engineers.

In the past year, Dan has worked on a number of machine design projects with international companies. One of these projects – a complete packaging line for a leading toy manufacturer – incorporated a solution that can handle more than 100 different carton sizes in a variety of styles.

Dan is an efficient young engineer who is intuitive and learns quickly. He can take projects from concept to installation and has established himself as the company’s ‘go to’ person for servos and pneumatics.

He has been able to discuss how other packaging manufacturers can encourage young people to explore careers in the industry and has looked to capture the imagination of young engineers by discussing the interesting challenges that engineers face.

Dan has developed a parametric design model specifically for use with Kliklok’s Top Load cartoner tooling. This has resulted in a standard set of design data that allows manufacturing drawings to be produced automatically using a 3D CAD system. The software is now in everyday use. He is now working on a 3D printing concept, which is exploring the use of 3D printed components in order to provide a quick turnaround of change parts and to improve customer service.

The judges said:“Dan Stamp has demonstrated his technical excellence and proven his engineering skills by making innovative contributions to product design, patent applications and through his work inspiring young engineers. He’s a brilliant and enthusiastic ambassador for engineering design”

Congratulations Dan, Kliklok is proud of you!!
