I was thinking about precision engineering whilst in Southampton last week. I went to Ikea to be exact and that’s what got me thinking about precision engineering in Southampton. The sun has been out for a while now (which is very nice) and we needed to get some new garden furniture. Not the most exciting thing to be doing I know, but we decided to try Ikea in Southampton. Why was I thinking about precision engineering whilst I was in Southampton? Well, Ikea furniture has an amazing degree of design and precision engineering expertise on show. (I know Ikea does not use precision engineering companies in Southampton which is a shame) but none the less it got me thinking about how diverse the field of engineering actually is and how many things we take for granted every day that have been engineered in some way or another. In fact precision engineering is all around us.

Precision Engineering Southampton

Whilst I stood on the top floor of Ikeas car park (more engineering) I could see several huge cruise ships moored up in Southampton docks. The engineering on those is on a different scale. Floating palaces of glittering stainless steel and glass that look like they have no right to be afloat let alone stay upright! It certainly does make you proud of what engineering can achieve, not forgetting with respect of course other famous ships that have been before reminding us that we don’t always get it quite right
