CASE STUDY

Waste slate turned into roof tiles

The MTC team modelled the full production process of Carapace’s tiles, identifying crucial areas of improvement at each step. By moving to a system of easily interchangeable tooling, they were able to slash downtime for retooling to 10 minutes.

CASE STUDY

Net zero manufacturing

As the lead on industrial processes, the HVM Catapult has identified the key areas that should be of global focus: net zero design and make; and tracking emissions throughout manufacturing supply chains.

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

Key role in Driving the Electric Revolution

The UK is planning to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050, with 78% of the reduction in carbon emissions planned for 2035. Such an ambitious target calls for radical restructuring of all forms of transport.

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

Smart, sustainable homes for the future

An estimated 345,000 homes need to be built in the UK each year to meet demand. To reach the Government’s target of net zero by 2050, each of them will need to have impeccable green credentials. Achieving this requires examining radical solutions.

CASE STUDY

Environmentally friendly solution for wind turbine installation

With funding from the Offshore Wind Growth Partnership, the NCC worked with Cedeco to develop an early-stage concept for a composite gripper, which would hold an offshore wind turbine leg in place without so much need for environmentally invasive reinforcement.

CASE STUDY

End-to-end hydrogen – supporting critical infrastructure

Hydrogen is a powerful fuel source that has the potential to revolutionise a number of sectors, including transport. With almost zero carbon emissions and a high energy density, this abundant gas promises to be a key element of delivering net zero whilst satisfying the increasing national need for energy.
