Reporting on Carbon for the Metals Sector

The first step to reducing your carbon footprint is to measure it – ‘what gets measured gets managed’ An important part of this transition is helping organisations understand how and what greenhouse gas emissions they generate and what they can do to minimise them. There are direct benefits to organisations from measuring and reporting as they will benefit from lower […]

Future policy for the UK Steel Industry

Global developments in recent years have brought into focus the importance of national resilience. From energy, to semi-conductors, to basic materials, the convulsions of the global economy is undergoing, bring into sharp focus the importance of strengthening local supply chains and the dangers of an over-reliance on an increasingly concentrated number of global suppliers. Against this backdrop, Gareth Stace will […]

Introduction to the new UK Regulatory Regime for Goods (The UKCA marking)

Great Britain now has its own robust regulatory framework for goods – the UKCA marking, and the UK’s domestic regime seeks to ensure consumers are protected from unsafe, and non-compliant goods. Businesses should get ready for the new regime as soon as possible to ensure they are compliant by 1 January 2023. In this session BEIS will give an overview […]

The Future of Method Engineering with Simulation

Recent research has shown that nearly 50% of companies wait for a part or tool to fail before conducting simulation. In this presentation we will be exploring the benefits of upfront simulation before manufacture to reduce prototyping and part failure which in turn leads to faster design cycles and reduced costs. We will also be looking at barriers that traditionally […]

Risks, Uncertainty and Challenges in the UK Metal Supply-Chain

The UK manufacturing and construction sectors are reliant on imports of metals. With most value-chains reaching back to China and further, these imports are increasingly being buffeted by macroeconomics, trade restrictions and governmental policies. Focused on metals, this session will look at how these developments are adding risks to supply and bringing price volatility, and touch on what buyers might […]

Resource efficient manufacturing through the optimisation of manufacturing and heating technologies

If the right material should be in the right place, then the right manufacturing technology should be used to achieve target shape. Therefore Resource efficient manufacturing is based on three fundamental pillars: selection of the appropriate material, understanding of the part design features, development/assessment of the suitable manufacturing technology, which need to be supported by the risk and cost assessment. […]
