A deep understanding of the properties and performance of materials, together with significant expertise in manufacturing processes, enables our team to develop novel materials and cost-effective production processes to meet industry demand.
Our multidisciplinary team includes ceramicists, engineers, metallurgists, modellers and physicists. We offer expertise in the following areas:
- particulate processing
- casting technology
- electronic ceramics and composites
- nanostructured or ultra-fine grain materials
- wear resistant materials and hard surfaces
- alloy forming technologies
- light alloy engineering.
