Hosted by Martin Johnson and Shaun Smart, the visit provided an overview of the companies activities followed by a tour of the facility based in Chatteris, Cambridgeshire. The robotic fabrication of nuclear waste storage tanks was observed, followed by a lively discussion on all aspects of fabrication, H&S and quality control.
Anya said “I had a great time at Metalcraft Chatteris learning about the fabrication industry and seeing how work progresses through from start to finish including certain challenges that must be overcome. I was fascinated by the vast range of sectors that Metalcraft have been involved in from nuclear to submersibles to astronomy, and how the production lines and testing requirements change between them.”
Anya is currently studying towards her Master of Sciences Postgraduate Degree in Advanced Materials.
Metalcraft have supported both group projects and individual research projects at Cranfield University as part of their active R&D Program. A vote of thanks was given by Anya and fellow student, Faruk Senturk to Metalcraft for their continued support.
