We're here to help you with those challenges others are reluctant to tackle. Our focus is on working with you to ensure that your products and processes are the best they can be, whether you're developing new products or applications, trying to improve yields, or implementing a new processing line.
Having worked on diverse projects across a wide range of industries, our experts bring this knowledge to your project, cross-fertilising technologies and solutions. And, if things go wrong with your product in service, we find the root cause of failures and implement suggested measures to stop them reoccurring.
Types of consultancy offered
We offer a range of types of consultancy that reflect our deep knowledge and expertise of material performance throughout the entire product development process, from initial material selection right through to in-service performance:
- failure analysis
- materials selection
- materials characterisation
- materials development
- process optimisation
- product optimisation
Typical areas of application
We are expanding our range of experience all the time but typical areas of application for our consultancy expertise include Additive Manufacturing, Net Zero, Traditional Ceramics, Advanced Ceramics, Microbiology, Fuel Cells, Batteries, Nuclear Power, and Refractories.
If you don’t see your specific area of interest, please give us a call – it is highly likely we will still be able to help!
We can help you to:
- understand materials and how they interact with each other
- improve existing products
- design your next generation of products
- optimize processing routes and implement new ones
- find the root cause of failures and stop them reoccurring
- move products from feasibility through to laboratory trials and onto pilot and manufacturing scale and implementation
