Forgemasters to present pioneering papers at global conference
Sheffield Forgemasters will outline its pioneering technical developments, including computer simulation, material developments and world leading forging techniques to leaders in the global forging industry at a high-profile international conference.
The engineering specialist will share the scope of its research, a body of work which places Forgemasters at the forefront of manufacture for key industries, including civil nuclear power production and defence, at September's International Forgemasters' Meeting (IFM) in Pittsburgh, USA.
Delegates from Forgemasters will present the papers, which cover advances in metallurgical analysis, development of innovative forging methods for ultra-large forgings and specialist forging techniques tailored to the nuclear power market.
Dr Jesus Talamantes-Silva, director of Forgemasters' research and development facility, said: "This research and the papers we will deliver at the IFM are extremely important to the development of Sheffield Forgemasters' portfolio within key industry sectors and will benefit this industry on a global level.
"Our work into such projects as the development of hollow ingots, extrusion techniques for large-scale forgings, definition of inclusions in steel making, production of large diameter tubesheets for civil nuclear power and development of forged steels for the nuclear industry has taken many years of input and a substantial investment.
"The papers have been refined so that these projects, as separate bodies of work, can be presented at the industry's most illustrious conference."
