KTP to develop state of the art manufacturing supply chain

The University of Bath has been awarded a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) with Helander Precision Engineering, a member of the €188 Million Calder Group, specialising in high value and highly complex finished parts.

The quality and specialist engineering of components and services is produced by Helander to the highest specifications and tolerances for operating in harsh environments, providing to industries sectors including oil and gas, nuclear, aerospace, defence, and industrial controls.

Working with the University of Bath, Helander will benefit from independent, expert knowledge applied in a bespoke manner to improve their manufacturing processes and customer interaction in meeting more challenging design requirements.

This is with the aim to implement a robust product verification process for one of their main customer’s operational requirements within the oil industry, as they continue to develop a state of the art manufacturing supply chain and process to meet customer needs.

Clive Bailey, Business Development Manager at the University, says: “We understand Helander’s focus to meet customer requirements and technical priorities and look forward to working with them in achieving this”.

Both partners hope for further innovations and opportunities to work jointly on future projects as a result of the KTP, which is being led by Professor Paul Maropoulos in the Department of Mechanical Engineering.

The KTP is funded by the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
