Kliklok Engineer wins British Engineering Excellence Award!
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

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.
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

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.
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.
