Older townsfolk will remember the venue as the Metupa, its name derived from the names of Jarrow's main employers - Metalworks, Tubeworks
and Palmer's - who were the stadium's custodians in its early days.
A new version of the TubeWorks tube bending CAD/CAM software, which now provides tubular metal fabricators with powerful pre-production tools for laser cutting as well as tube bending, is available from the tube bending machine manufacturer Unison.
Developed by the software consultancy 3DCompound, TubeWorks is a specialist add-in module for the popular SolidWorks mechanical CAD package.
Version 2.6 of TubeWorks extends this functionality significantly, by enabling users to unbend' the CAD models of bent tubes into flat (or straight) configurations containing full details of all holes and cut-outs, to provide the input data for laser tube cutting machines.
As well as automating the extraction of manufacturing data, TubeWorks offers numerous functions to further help users minimize the pre-production design time of machine-based tube cutting and bending.
