Dragon Cam 6 issue resolved – 14/10/2010

14 October, 2010

DMM is pleased to announce that the issue affecting some size 6 Dragon Cams resulting in a recall notice has been resolved. A brand new replacement unit will be going out this week to everyone who returned their size 6 Dragon cams.

The units have been modified by the previously CNC aluminium axle boss / termination being replaced by a hot forged component. Explaining the change, DMM Technical Director, Fred Hall, said: "The change to a hot forging process has resolved the issue of predictability in manufacturing the axle block."

"Modified units will instantly be recognisable as the new termination is very different in appearance to the original. From a manufacturing efficiency point of view it is logical for us to do the same for sizes 4 and 5 in the future so we have a suite of components."

Since the Dragon Cam sizes 1, 2 and 3 are manufactured from 316 stainless steel they are totally unaffected. DMM Brand Manager, Chris Rowlands, said: "Once again I'd like to thank all our customers and retailers who were affected by the recall for their patience and understanding."
