Metal production and interface design facilities
Metals production and interface design facilities
Production plants, a large foundry and a collection of well-equipped laboratories comprise the facilities that support R&D carried out by scientists and engineers at CSIRO. Please contact us if you wish to know about our R&D projects or to make use of these facilities and our know-how associated with the equipment.
Titanium thin sheet
CSIRO is developing a process for producing low-cost titanium sheet and strip from titanium powder with the potential to open dramatically the market for a wide range of applications of this versatile metal.
CSIRO Clayton has a suite has been developing and delivering casting technologies for over 30 years and has a strong track record of working closely with, and delivering benefits for Australian industry.
The capability devises technology to minimize the effect of corrosion of metal structures. These technologies may be coating systems , sensing systems or predictive methodologies to define the life and optimum maintenance scheduling for structures.
Self aware materials and nano-sensing
The capability is developing materials that can sense, interpret and response to changes in their environment without the aid of external intervention.
DCM technology has been implemented as DCM software which takes X-ray CT images as input and produces compositional microstructures and some material properties as output.
This capability is aimed at dramatically increasing the rate of discovery and assessment of new materials by combining computational or virtual design and robotic experimentation.
