A leading global supplier of advanced technology materials testing products, which has been operating in the UK for over 40 years, has moved its headquarters from Leominster to Worcester, occupying new, purpose-built premises.
As additive manufacturing finds applications across the aerospace industry, one thing remains a constant – testing continues to play an essential role in enabling the quality management of raw materials through to completed products.
Aerospace Manufacturing hears how development data obtained from High-cycle fatigue testing allows improvements in the design and durability of fastener products designed to meet tough aerospace requirements.
Producing fasteners for the aerospace and automotive industries requires a greater focus on quality and material selection to meet high performance expectations and hardness testing is often the best way of establishing that components will perform satisfactorily in their intended application.
Adoption of additive manufacturing (AM) as a viable means of production continues to increase, offering substantial advantages for the manufacture of low volume, high mix parts and complex geometries prohibitive under conventional techniques. As the scope of applications increases, demand for quality evaluations of key processes such as powder metallurgy also increases.
