tsc was set up in 2004 to provide a cost-effective solution to the technology needs of manufacturing companies in the aluminium industry. After many years experience in-house delivering manufacturing technology, we now provide out-sourced technology services to a range of clients.
Our comprehensive portfolio of technical aluminium training courses can be delivered in person when possible or as live online sessions. These encompass process courses (melting, melt treatment, casting, rolling and extrusion) as well as metallurgical courses.
Next open course: The Metallurgy of Solidification & Homogenisation
We provide a range of consultancy services, covering process and product development, technical assessments and audits, and technical due diligence.
Our comprehensive web-based knowledge management system, K-Maps, is used to map manufacturing process streams against the attributes of the products they produce.
Process models can be very helpful in problem solving and improving understanding. For remelts, casthouses and foundries our models include melting furnaces, in-line and batch melt treatment, and DC casting. Downstream models include hot and cold rolling and extrusion, in addition to coil coating. We make extensive use of models in our training courses, and in some cases provide secure licenced acess to clients.
