Emsea’s sponsored Robot, Aftershock, will be making its debut appearance on television screens this Sunday (5th March) at 7pm on BBC2.
In order to give Team Shock the very best chance of wining the title of Robot Wars Champion 2017, sponsors, Emsea, cut Team Shock’s precision parts on its state of the art Waterjet Machine, Flows Flagship Mach 4, the most technically advanced machine in the industry.
The cold cutting process produces highly accurate parts without any heat damage and can cut through materials up to 200mm thick with a geometric accuracy of ±0.1mm.
Chris Sweet, director at Emsea observed: “Whilst some of the parts could have been cut on our laser machines we felt that due to the nature of the material and the purpose of the venture the waterjet would provide the very best quality cut and finish.”
“We are excited to be a part of Team Shock and wish them luck in their endeavour to become the ultimate fighting bot!”
Great things are predicted for Aftershock after predecessor, Shockwave, won Heat B of Robot Wars 2016 and made its way to the Grand Final.
“Whilst we can’t reveal any spoilers about our performance, we can assure you that Aftershock is going to be a serious contender for the Robot Wars title,” commented Will Thomas, Team Shock Captain.
Tune in to BBC2 at 7pm on Sunday 5th March to see them compete in the first heat!
