Doré Metals Supply Metal for
Giant World Renowned Band Tour Robot

In 2011, a world-famous British pop group embarked on their live tour, performing in several major venues across the UK and overseas. A key element of their record-breaking tour was a giant animatronic robot that transported all members of the band across the stadium in spectacular fashion. 

Doré Metals were honoured to be approached by the design team in charge of creating the showstopping android, who tasked us with providing high-quality, made-to-measure aluminium sections for the build.  

The Project 

The engineers involved in the creation of the giant illuminated man, Om, had the entire design planned to a T. They were looking to source metal that would allow them to turn their blueprints into a reality. 

Om was programmed to move in a human-like fashion, changing position from lying, to sitting, to standing, with fully adjustable arms. This proved quite a challenge for both their team and our own, but we were more than up to tackling it head on! 

Our Involvement 

The role Doré Metals played was integral to the successful operation of the robot. We were able to source and supply the exact aluminium pieces the design team needed, which were strong enough to support the demands of the project.  

Using our precision cutting equipment, we were also able to guarantee the pieces fit the exact requirements of the design team, meaning the metal adhered to the specifications demanded by the project. 

We also offered a fast turnaround on the supply of the metals, helping to keep the project lead times down.
