Objectives
Abstract This Technology Strategy Board supported project will research and develop an innovative supply chain processes for the production of key components. These components form part of a highly innovative range of products that will support vehicle manufacturers to meet their obligations to reduce carbon emissions. The lead industry partner will be Torotrak (Development) Limited supported in the consortium by Advanced Forging Research Centre and the Manufacturing Technology Centre. This group will evaluate and develop the most appropriate steels that suit the innovative forging processes to ultimately reduce post processing and thus costs and the supply chain lead time. The outcome will then enable industry to exploit the new processes and therefore see the CO2 reducing products into market to support the vehicle manufacturers.This Technology Strategy Board supported project will research and develop an innovative supply chain processes for the production of key components.
