Stephen Cater
Principal Project Leader - Friction and Forge Processes

Stephen Cater is a Principal Project Leader at TWI’s Yorkshire Technology Centre, responsible for research into the friction stir welding (FSW) of both thick section light metal alloys such as aluminium and magnesium, and high plasticisation point materials such as steel, titanium and nickel based alloys.

A metallurgist by training, and winner of the Richard Weck Award for his work on steel, Stephen led TWI’s Core Research Programme (CRP) into the development of FSW for steel, and also led the welding elements of two recent projects looking at FSW for marine construction. These programmes were HILDA (High Integrity Low Distortion Assembly) and MOSAIC (Materials Onboard: Steel Advancements and Integrated Composites). Stephen is currently leading the effort for the marinisation of FSW of steel for the RESURGAM research project.

Stephen leads TWI’s FSW training programme, having developed a series of FSW courses in accordance with the requirements of the ISO FSW Standard, ISO 25239:2011.

Prior to joining TWI, Stephen served as a soldier with experience of both combat tours and technical attachments to DSTL (Defence Science & Technology Laboratory)
