CASE STUDY

Metal additive manufacturing for lightweight helicopter parts

A process design and topology optimisation study was undertaken, beginning with a baseline stress analysis for a current machined-from-solid AlSi10Mg aluminium alloy handle, in order to evaluate different AM handle designs and also a hollow handle, indicating weight savings of between 20% and 45% were possible.

CASE STUDY

Seismic II takes schools to the next level

Large public works, like schools and hospitals, are increasingly benefitting from the faster delivery of modern methods of construction, such as modular building. The catch is that there are many platforms for modular structures that can prove incompatible, leading to potential waste and increased cost.

CASE STUDY

Supporting patients with cerebral palsy

The current standing frames have a number of limitations, including high cost of manufacture, ease of use for medical professionals and carers, and the bespoke nature of each frame making it difficult to re-adapt them for other patients.

CASE STUDY

Helping construction reopen safely

Social distancing is key to reopening sections of the economy that have needed to close during the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the group nature of the work, social distancing has particularly hit the UK construction sector, meaning many sites have been unable to operate normally.

CASE STUDY

Dental aerosol protection equipment to safeguard against airborne particles

To help address this, the MTC has developed ‘Halo’. Designed to protect dentistry staff and patients against contaminated aerosol particles, it provides up to 99% protection when used in conjunction with standard dental high-volume extraction equipment.

CASE STUDY

Developing an aerosol-generating procedure shield to protect NHS workers

Identified as an opportunity to reduce the exposure our healthcare workers face when treating patients, the enhancement offers a number of benefits, including a substantial weight reduction from 9kg to 4.5kg, improved visual clarity and ease of use.
