One of Helipebs young engineers, Lucy Nichols, recently visited a local school, Elmbridge Junior, to help promote engineering to year 5 and 6 students. The day was spent working with small groups to design and build a lego robot, which had to be programmed and complete a range of functions. The winners had the opportunity to visit Helipebs Controls where they were shown the latest computer programmed machines as well as spending time working with engineers to design 3D models.
Following detailed discussions at Board level, Helipebs Controls Ltd has decided to withdraw from the specific ‘Intelligent Systems’ market with effect from 1st April 2014. The company will no longer offer frames, structures or servo controllers. The financial results of this division have been poor over the past few years and this has regrettably resulted in one redundancy.
