Research & Development

Sheffield Forgemasters' Research & Development (R&D) team invests a lot of time into the prediction and analysis phases of a component production.

Prediction and analysis software, tools and methods allow Sheffield Forgemasters to accurately predict the outcome of a steel casting or forging. This is vital in castings that involve over 600 tonnes of liquid metal for example.

The cost of failure in projects like this is extremley high, even just in terms of wasted material in the event of a component failing. Our teams will therefore invest hours and days into advanced simulation techniques to ensure components do not fail.
