Japanese manufacturer Mitsubishi Materials Group has agreed a partnership with the University of Strathclyde, which will mean it is now a member of its Advanced Forming Research Centre (AFRC).

As a result of the partnership, the AFRC will be provided with equipment and training from Mitsubishi, helping the centre’s engineering team to develop new machining strategies and understand best practice within the industry.

The AFRC is one of seven elite centres that form the UK High-Value Manufacturing Catapult which is the catalyst for the future growth and success of manufacturing in the UK.  

The AFRC will be utilised a test facility for the development of new manufacturing processes and products, which will subsequently be used to produce metal components for use in a range of industries including automotive, aerospace, oil and gas.

Greater access to the UK market

Mitsubishi motors will also benefit from the partnership by receiving greater access to the UK market and also allowing it to trial its cutting tools within the country.

Lynne O’Hare, Commercial Team Lead at the AFRC, is excited at the prospect of working with a business that prioritises its customers and is committed to manufacturing.

Throughout the new partnership, The AFRC will be working alongside Mitsubishi to create and develop new innovative machining solutions, which can eventually be used to solve real industry problems.

Exciting for both parties

According to Alex Saboulis, Northern Regional Sales Manager for Mitsubishi in the UK, the partnership is an extremely exciting venture for both parties and joining the AFRC will only strengthen the company’s knowledge.

As experience is passed on, students will be able to use some of the most innovative techniques and equipment around, laying a solid foundation for the future of manufacturing and engineering.
