Championing Advanced Metals Processing
Royce@Sheffield is part of the University's world-leading Department of Materials Science and Engineering. As a major partner of the Henry Royce Institute for Research and Innovation of Advanced Materials, we are leading on the Institute's theme of Advanced Metals Processing.
Through collaboration with industry, we aim to deliver a step change in the discovery and making of new material systems and processes, with emphasis on metal powders and additive manufacturing.Our vision>
We provide state-of-the-art facilities for research and development into advanced materials development and manufacturing - all in one place. Our equipment is available to businesses wishing to benefit from our knowledge and expertise.Our facilities>
We have developed capabilities that will enable us to work with industry to develop novel products and processes - from fundamental research right through to translation for industry, covering Technology Readiness Levels one to six.Find out more>
Materials discovery and prototyping
Delivering a step change in the way that novel materials are developed for specific applications. Take a look at our melting and casting systems.
Manufacturing advanced materials
Our focus is on the introduction of new resource efficient, sustainable and lightweight materials and processes. Our facilities include spark plasma sintering and isostatic pressing.
Characterisation and testing
Our characterisation capabilities span all other functions housed within Royce@Sheffield. The techniques available play a vital role in our iterative approach to the design, make, refine process.
