Very please to host the South Durham UTC Y12 Physics students at Henry Williams this morning. The students spent the morning understanding what we do, focusing on forging and material selection.
It was great to engage with the students and relate their classroom learning on material properties to real life.
The students will follow a batch of automotive steering levers through the production process and understand the material transformation from billet to high quality heat treated forgings.
Today they witnessed the forging process and tested the raw billet in our UKAS approved mechanical testing laboratory. They will be back in 2 weeks for more.
