No Shame at Salford Lad’s

Actor Ciaran Griffiths AKA Mickey Maguire in the TV series Shameless donned the gloves and put 3 of the engineers from Kingsland Wines through their paces, he sparred 2 rounds each with Andy, Greg and Eathan and showed them he’s no mug when it comes to ringcraft and boxing technique. Ciaran has trained at many Boxing Clubs in Greater Manchester with his close friend Andrew “Barney” McHugh, former presenter of Seconds Out. He was a regular at Salford Lad’s when helping Barney prepare for his White Collar bout in 2007 for charity.

After launching the promotion for “The Great British Box Off” 4 engineers (Andy, Mike, Greg and Danny) from Kingsland Wines, took part in Salford Lad’s club boxing session where Russ Arrowsmith put them through their paces. Starting with a gentle warm up, they progressed to circuit training, 20 minutes of boxing technique, conditioned sparring and a circuit involving bag work and basic exercises.

The Great British Box off will be staged next February, where staff from Bakery, Brewing, Bottling and other process companies will actually put the gloves on and climb into the ring to compete and raise money for a nominated charity.

Engineering or just Magic?

Monday 26 June marked the twentieth anniversary of the release of the first Harry Potter novel. This inspired some of our engineers to try and use a little magic themselves and create the items previously produced by the Peverell Brothers.

That’s right, we created our very own Elder Wand, Resurrection Stone and Cloak of Invisibility. Unfortunately, like the books we’ll have to use our imagination to get our full use out of them!
 Elder Wand:

All these items were rendered by our engineers using Solidworks. We utilised variety of functions to create these mystical items such special surface functions and engraving  features to mark the items so that they appeared as true to their film counterparts as possible.
Resurrection Stone with and without its ring:

Last, but certainly not least, check out our invisibility cloak!
Can’t you see (well you can’t but..) how good a job we’ve done!

Why not give us a challenge and see what other magical items we can conjure up?
