  • Product Technology & Applications

    Research into Product Technology & Applications is organised into a number of specific areas.

    These are:

    Charter of the Materials Characterisation & Pilot Manufacturing department:
    The objective of this department will be to provide world class material analyses and pilot manufacturing to TSE.
    Material characterisations are done to create in-depth forensic understanding of TSE products and processes by applying and developing methods.
    The pilot facilities cover all processing steps within TSE downstream from casting.

    Knowledge groups:
    - Microstructure & Surface Characterisation
    - Strip Pilot Technology & Prototyping
    - Longs Pilot Technology & Prototyping
    - Characterisation & Performance

    Charter of the Materials Design department:
    To innovate, design, develop and help implement with speed value added steel based products across all sectors for now and the future.

    Knowledge groups:
    Functional & Formable Strip Steels
    - High Strength Strip Steels
    - Plates, Tubes & Section Steels
    - Rail, Rod & Speciality Steels

    Charter of the Surface Engineering department:
    Support all existing products and coating technologies with surface enhanced properties, both metallic, inorganic and organic.
    Develop differentiating coating systems and technologies
    Create further understanding of the role and function of enhanced surface properties
    Develop the polymer knowledge needed for innovative steel solutions
    Create in-depth understanding of customer applications and processes

    Knowledge groups:
