The efficient use of resources in manufacturing processes coupled with low carbon and low energy manufacturing processes is a major target across the whole of manufacturing industry.
Each of the centres that make up the HVM Catapult have skills and expertise in the development and delivery of resource-efficient and sustainable processes. This spans techniques for efficient material processing and the redesign of manufacturing processes to reduce time and increase efficiency through to near-net shape processing and continuous process manufacturing. Process design, prototyping and techno-economic analysis is also available to help create next generation manufacturing. Whatever the requirement, at least one of the centres within the HVM Catapult is likely to be able to provide access to equipment and knowledge to help partner companies improve the efficiency and sustainability of their processes.
