Sheffield Forgemasters has a wealth of knowledge and experience which can be effectively deployed to support consultancy projects across a broad range of areas.
From modelling, simulation and analysis through to manufacturing process development and support on plant design and equipment specification, our team has provided services to an international client base for over 40 years.
We currently hold ASME status as a Nuclear Materials Organisation, a qualification held since 1992.
A tier one member of the Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (NAMRC), our knowledge of the precise requirements and comprehensive understanding of the ASME code provides a strong base to advise and assist businesses aiming to enter the UK civil nuclear supply chain.
Development of robust and practical Quality Systems has formed part of consultancy projects to customers desiring to develop supply of components into international markets.
Several projects have been undertaken, delivering increased revenue and reduced rejection rates.
Powerful simulation and modelling tools along with extensive experience enabled us to replicate historic Reactor Pressure Vessel components. Thorough investigation and testing of the replica components enabled Axpo’s Benzau 1 PWR reactor to return to service after three years of evaluation.
Our manufacturing strength is frequently deployed to benefit customers when optimising casting and forging profiles. This can benefit heat treatment and machining operations for well-defined components, enabling optimisation of design and through-manufacture costs.
We have provided substantial support to a number of international clients to define plant requirements and material flow in order to achieve their production aspirations.
This has been based on the breadth and depth of knowledge available within the organisation and its associates, throughout steelmaking, forging and heat treatment operations.
Further discussions are ongoing with a number of additional potential clients.
