What we do Training Membership Expert Witness Testing Contract R & D Consultancy Construction Healthcare Electronics Minerals & Petrochem Aerospace & Automotive Energy & Environment Materials Consumer & Retail Assist product development & innovation Solve problems Provide information Add value to processes
  4. 4. Slow release of chemicals <ul><li>Value to the customer </li></ul><ul><li>Increased their product line revenues by 40% by introducing a superior product hence differentiating their offering compared to the competition’s. </li></ul><ul><li>What CERAM delivered </li></ul><ul><li>Developed materials with different chemical release rates, selecting the optimum material to improve yields. </li></ul><ul><li>Specified requirements & sourced mass production glass suppliers to produce the product. </li></ul>The challenge Create a better controlled release of chemicals in an agricultural environment to improve crop yields.
  5. 5. Sticky compounds <ul><li>Value to the customer </li></ul><ul><li>Saved a potential multi-million £ capital investment. </li></ul><ul><li>Reduced downtimes by 80%. </li></ul>The challenge As the producer of a sticky compound, the customer suffered major downtime in cleansing and refurbishing mill rollers due to the compound sticking to the rollers. <ul><li>What CERAM delivered </li></ul><ul><li>Understood the surface interaction between the compound and metal roller using a range of chemical analysis techniques. </li></ul><ul><li>Identified ways to coat and treat the roller surfaces. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Sourcing new refractory suppliers <ul><li>Value to the customer </li></ul><ul><li>Supplier saving of approximately 25% translating into over £1million plus saving. </li></ul><ul><li>Risk reduction of early material failure. </li></ul>The challenge A bottle glass manufacturer was sourcing low cost refractory suppliers from China and wanted to independently validate product quality and check if the products were fit for purpose for their application. <ul><li>What CERAM delivered </li></ul><ul><li>Audited production processes and tested product quality of potential suppliers. </li></ul><ul><li>Recommended best supplier. </li></ul><ul><li>Maintained a quality assurance programme with the supplier on behalf of the customer. </li></ul>

  8. 8. Evaluation of space components <ul><li>Value to the customer </li></ul><ul><li>Meeting lifetime and performance mission-critical criteria. </li></ul><ul><li>The mission is to make direct measurement of wind field patterns for climate research. </li></ul>The challenge ESA evaluation and mitigation against determination of the lifetime of precision optics for the Aeolus satellite program. Aiding the selection of optical materials and component for the project. <ul><li>What CERAM delivered </li></ul><ul><li>Provided analytical consultancy to determine the likely performance of potential critical optical components under consideration. </li></ul>
