Dr Arron Rimmer, Development Director of ADI Treatments Ltd, presented his paper “Development of ADI for Truck Suspension Components” to the November meeting of the West Mids Branch. His talk was based on a paper he has presented at two international conferences this year. It was first presented at the Munich Colloquium of Innovation in Production in October and more recently at a Ductile Iron Symposium in Las Vegas.
More details of these may be seen in the October issue of FTJ page 246.
The branch was privileged to have an internationally acclaimed paper presented by its author. This material, with its special properties, has been promoted for some years and it now appears that its use is gathering momentum. Dr Rimmer’s paper concentrated on the development of the material for truck components.
50 members and guests attended. The talk was enjoyed by all and a very lively discussion followed led by our own inquisitor, Ken Southwick. Dr Rimmer’s responses revealed his outstanding expertise in his subject.
