Forging a new future

Sheffield Forgemasters, a castings and forging company tackling some of the world’s most complex engineering challenges in clean energy and defence, has signed up as a Tier One Partner with the University of Strathclyde’s Advanced Forming Research Centre (AFRC). The move will give the 200 year-old company, recently taken into public ownership with a planned investment of £400m, access to the AFRC’s R&D facilities in Renfrewshire, which focus on emerging areas of advanced manufacturing, such as residual stress, cutting-edge furnaces, and forging expertise in Industry 4.0 data analytics and modelling.
