AMETEK Land recently announced that it has renewed its tier-two membership with the University of Strathclyde’s Advanced Forming Research Centre (AFRC) for a further four years. A member of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, the AFRC reportedly helps turn innovative manufacturing and advanced engineering technologies into commercial reality, working with industry to develop solutions that bring about real business benefits for manufacturing companies of all sizes across the UK and internationally.
“Tier two membership of the AFRC provides us with a great opportunity to work with the UK’s leading manufacturers and foremost researchers on industrial process improvement,” said Christopher Leonard, director of Development and Product Management at AMETEK Land. “AMETEK Land provides equipment advice to them on how to take advantage of our non-contact temperature measurement technology. This collaboration helps make their research, processing and production more efficient and effective.”
Membership includes representation on the AFRC’s technical board, as well as opportunities to network with tier-one members. The objective is to develop close working relationships with other members and supply chain partners.
