Funded: Looking to collaborate
Our aim is to apply for funds (for example Innovate UK, KTP) jointly with industrial companies interested in finding ways of improving their machining process and product lifetime
Damage and defects that take place during machining/manufacturing can significantly impact product lifetime. This can have a costly impact on machining replacements and production line downtime.
At the University of Sheffield, we have state-of-art facilities and equipment for machining and manufacturing research as well as advanced computer-aided engineering expertise and are investigating ways to reduce equipment damage and defects.
Areas of focus
•New advanced materials for manufacturing
•Speed / power ratios
•Tooling and advancements in increasing life
•Damage during machining
•Lifetime prediction and Fatigue
We’re looking for
We’re looking for an industrial partner to jointly apply for funding to further research with the focus on real and positive impacts in an industrial setting. We are also open to new ideas that could require use of our equipment and expertise and are always looking for industry partners.
If this is of interest, please CONNECT through konfer for more details.
