Thermomechanical Processing


Royce at the University of Sheffield hosts Thermomechanical Processing capabilities which give researchers and industrial partners open access to pilot scale experiments in unique rolling and continuous extrusion equipment.

Within the Royce at the University of Sheffield close loop, ingots cast under the Alloy Discovery & Prototyping Technology Platform can be rolled into sheets ready for Characterisation or collaboration with other Royce Advanced Materials Processing Partners. 

Former wastes, such as powder from near-net-shape production or swarf from machined components, can be converted to useful wire by extrusion. These processes offer new, unique pathways in the processing of novel alloys, or valorisation of waste streams for new recycling and sustainability models in metal manufacturing.
