05/07/2012

His Royal Highness the Duke of York formally opened Strathclyde University's multi-million pound Advanced Forming Research Centre (AFRC) on Wednesday 19th January during a visit to Scotland, where Land was proud to unveil the Arc Thermal Imaging Camera.

The world-class research centre pioneers forming and forging techniques to support manufacturing for the aerospace, energy, marine and automobile industries, and is expected to set new standards in manufacturing design.

Prince Andrew, the Special Representative for International Trade and Investment, was given a guided tour of the Centre’s leading-edge facilities, which include a high-power electron microscope, a £1.5 million screw press capable of exerting a force of up to 2,000 tonnes with pinpoint accuracy; precision measurement facilities and furnaces capable of temperatures in excess of 1200°C.

In addition, the Centre is to become the only research institute in the UK in possession of super-plastic forming technologies, which will enable researchers to shape complex materials at temperatures of up to 960°C. The facilities will support the manufacture of a range of advanced products for aircraft wings, engines, cars, ships, medical devices and power generation.
