Upcoming Event - UK Surface Engineering Industry- Present & Future

Following their successful seminar at MACH 2014, Cranfield University and the MTA have once again teamed up to bring Members a special conference on UK Industrial Surface Engineering. This free full day conference will be held on 17 February 2015 at Cranfield University, Bedfordshire.

Surface engineering has been recognized as an enabling technology which is capable of addressing some of the key issues faced by the manufacturing industry. The development, application and validation of surface engineering treatments are valuable tools in achieving differentiated products by allowing, at the same time, high materials performance and advanced designs.

This industrial conference day is chaired by Professor Jose L. Endrino, (Cranfield University) and it is intended for UK and international engineers and other professionals, from the supply-chain and end-users, as well as for members from academia currently dealing with advanced coating materials for any type of application. This major event, hosted at Cranfield University, aims to discuss some of the ideas to maintain an active innovation culture in this sector. Several keynote lectures during the morning and afternoon sessions will cover some of the present topics in UK Surface Engineering related to power generation, wear protection and tribology and highly functional applications. The event will close with an open discussion about the requirements for UK Surface Engineering industry in the future.

As with similar MTA conferences, such as that held at the AMRC earlier this year, there will be a number of exhibitors including:

  •     Bronkhorst UK
  •     Carbodeon Ltd Oy
  •     Hiden Analytical
  •     Institute of Materials Finishing (IMF)
