Huxley Bertram Engineering

Huxley Bertram are master innovators in mechanical engineering. This is a fantastic chance to see the latest design and build of innovative, special purpose, automated equipment at their facilities in Waterbeach; and to hear how they solve challenges from producing a machine that can make 20 million razor blades per year to the elegance of the Corpus Christi Chronophage Clock

Several visits are arranged each year to organisations in and around Cambridge who have an international reputation for the application of research. You must be either a member of CSAR or registered for Pay-As-You-Go to join a visit, and on most occasions you will need to provide your own transport. There is a charge of £10 per person to cover costs.

Online booking for upcoming events will be available shortly.

Visits last season included a trip to NIAB's MacLeod Complex and G’s Growers Cooperative - audience feedback showed that the day was a big success:

‘Bill Clark [at NIAB] was superb - an exemplar of clarity - with a command of his subject at every level which was most impressive, combined with a natural warmth in delivery that couldn't fail to charm.'

'Two super chaps [at G's] showed us the intricacies of lettuce production and made it absolutely fascinating. The minibus made traveling around feasible, and it was valuable to see the planters and pickers first hand, rather than in a photo in a slide pack.’

‘Excellent visit, very well organised.’
