Demonstrating an ongoing commitment to be at the leading edge of 3D design and the benefits that brings both to B&D and their customers B&D have moved to the latest version their CAD software and are now running Creo 4.0 from PTC.
With a wide range of customers in many industries Creo allows the B&D design team to work with client CAD data to both conceptualise ideas in early phases and verify for production in the later stages of the design process.
Creo is PTC’s flagship 3D CAD software and enables B&D to work effectively and efficiently, the latest enhancements improve design iteration options and speed up drawing creation in the production phase. B&D have extensive experience using Creo undertaking many packaging and shipping projects including numerous space hardware containers for shipping to worldwide launch sites and a re-usable system for shipping large scientific equipment across Europe.
Creo is a 3D modelling system used by many house hold names to undertake and manage their design process, these include BAE Systems, Lockheed Martin Space Systems, Adidas and Philips.
B&D welcome early project engagement, please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
Having outgrown its original Barnstaple offices Barum & Dewar took the keys to its brand new offices just a few weeks before Christmas.
Located on the western edge of Barnstaple with immediate access to the A361 link road and the M5 motorway network B&D’s new south west offices offer a modern and stimulating work environment.
With state of the art communications and workspace settings the new offices provide additional space and resources for B&D’s increasing staff requirements. The offices are home to a number of key teams including Technical Design, Group Financial Services, Operations and Sales & Marketing. A largely open plan layout with conference facilities and break out area ensures that B&D’s integrated teamwork approach continues with free flowing communications and flexible engagement.
MD, David Frame commented “the relocation to larger, ultra-modern facilities designed specifically to meet our growing needs underlines both our commitment to this business as well as to this area of the UK. We have a fantastic team at B&D who continue to drive this business forward and providing them with an appropriate working environment is just one of a number of initiatives which we believe will assist in the growth of the business.”
Telephone and e-mail details remain as before but the address has changed from Unit 11 to Unit 3, Two Rivers Industrial Estate, Braunton Road, Barnstaple, North Devon EX31 1JY.
Barum & Dewar were delighted to receive their Cyber Essentials Certificate in recognition of their compliance with this Government backed and industry supported scheme.
The UK Government recently highlighted its plans to invest heavily in Cyber security and British Industry now need to be aware that every British company is a target, every British network will be attacked, and that Cyber crime is not something that happens to other people.
Barum and Dewar take the security of its client’s and supply partner’s data and information extremely seriously and fully support this scheme.
For businesses supplying into the UK Defence sector, the MOD is committed to ensuring it and its supply chain are appropriately protected and has been working jointly with Industry and other Government departments in the Defence Cyber Protection Partnership (DCPP) to develop a proportionate means of achieving this. For all new requirements advertised from 1st January 2016 which entail the transfer of MOD identifiable information from customer to supplier or the generation of information by a supplier specifically in support of the MOD contract, MOD will require suppliers to have a Cyber Essentials certificate by the contract start date at the latest, and for it to be renewed annually.
B&D are a key supplier to both the MoD and many UK Prime Contractors who can be re-assured that when engaging with Barum & Dewar all information is appropriately protected against the increasing cyber threat.

B&D’s innovative DELTA®range of fully configurable containers proved the ideal solution once again for the latest SSTL variant of its GMP-T small geostationary satellite platform.The “Eutelsat Quantum” will be SSTL’s first geostationary satellite platform and the design is based on the SSTL GMP-T satellite product, a small and scalable geostationary craft with a design life of 15 years, payload power of up to 7 KW, and payload mass of up to 450kg.
The flexibility offered by the DELTA® style container is a key attraction enabling the almost 4 metre high container to be reduced to less than 1 metre for storage and return shipping. Further features are due to be added to this container in early 2017 as the space qualification model undergoes a series of tests.
The ability to create a bespoke container solution which is re-usable, adaptable, can be reconfigured for future use and reduced in height for empty shipping and storage are just some of the key features of the DELTA® container range.
With height restrictions in many test facilities it becomes impractical to lift a conventionally constructed container lid up and over an almost 4 metre high satellite. With an assembled height of around 4 metres the container not only had to be robust and strong but also needed to be capable of being assembled and opened manually without the need of mechanical cranes. The container was designed in sections with each part easily man handled – the final design also enabled the empty container to be flat packed for storage and empty shipping. The use of aluminium honeycomb panels reduced weight whilst retaining strength.
Barum & Dewar are a leading UK manufacturer of complete packaging solutions to the Defence, Subsea, Industrial, Instrumentation, Space and Aerospace sectors with over 20 years’ experience in these markets. Capabilities include technical design services using the latest 3D CAD, manufacture of highly engineered and bespoke shipping containers, handling equipment, tarpaulin covers as well as off the shelf transit cases, 19” racks and containers.
