Sheffield Forgemasters has a dedicated Research & Development (R&D) team that supplies expert design services to the wider company and to external contracts.

Our R&D department is vital to the quality and complexity of many of the services and products that we offer. The team provide sophisticated design services which allow us to optimise components and solve complex engineering challenges.

The team are able to modify and optimise existing components designs, for example combining several fabricated components into a single cast or forged steel solution. This can increase component life cycle expentancy by reducing in-service fatigue.
