Recent Work

Nuclear AEA - Jet Project

During 2017 LSFE have produced several test and development parts and fasteners to support the Jet Project, at Culham research facility. Due to the critical nature of these parts, parts were supplied with certification to 3.2 level, and complete manufacture including forging where applicable was conducted in house, this activity was supported further by our On-site ISO 17025 laboratory, ensuring full testing could be demonstrated with both the client, 3rd party and LSFE staff present.
