Asmet is pleased to be exhibiting at the 2012 NAMTEC & AMRC Annual Conference on 17th October 2012 at the Doubletree by Hilton Sheffield Park Hotel.
The event has attracted leading companies from the cast metals sector including Boeing, Rolls-Royce, GKN Aerospace and Sheffield Forgemasters and will provide delegates with a fantastic insight into the technology challenges and developments across the manufacturing sector.
The conference follows on from the announcement on the 1st August 2012 when NAMTEC joined the University of Sheffield’s Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) to better promote innovation and competitiveness among UK manufacturers.
The UK’s Challenge to Produce Castings for Wind and Nuclear Power
As the UK continues to rebalance its economy and recognises the need for more specialised, high value manufacturing, Asmet knows from our wealth of customer experience, that the UK has many successful iron and steel foundries producing high quality castings for the automotive, aerospace, defence, oil, gas and power industries, and that the sector is well positioned for future growth and investment.
Despite the economic uncertainty over the last few years, there have been promising investments in new plant and equipment, and there is an exciting challenge of developing extra capacity to produce the quantity of large, specialised castings required for a new generation of wind and nuclear power generation. It is essential that the UK Cast Metals Sector secures the investment and support to make this happen, but only by working closely together can we combine our knowledge and skills to provide the long-term jobs and prosperity that UK PLC needs.
Asmet has been a member of the NAMTEC manufacturing forum since its launch in 2011 and has a wealth of experience in technical innovation and consultancy for the production of specialised high quality castings.
