Students get insight into Sarginsons’ work
November 15, 2018
A group of Coventry students have been given an insight into high-tech manufacturing techniques at a world class company in the city.
Thirty students from the WMG Academy paid a visit to Sarginsons Industries, which makes and supplies components to a range of internationally renowned companies including Jaguar Land Rover and Aston Martin.
Sarginsons, a lightweight castings business based in Torrington Avenue, recently announced significant investment in machinery and technology and this was a chance for the 17-year-olds to find out how some of the processes work.
They got to see some gravity die-casting of components for Aston Martin and a brief insight into processes such as x-ray analysis, spectro analysis, dye penetration, thermo analysis, micro and macro structure studies and tensile testing.
Anthony Evans, managing director of Sarginsons, said: “We love to welcome the students from the WMG Academy to our foundry.
“It is great to see young people with such a keen interest in manufacturing and engineering and to be able to give them genuine insight into the way we work on a daily basis.
“It’s a chance for them to see what happens in a real foundry and transfer some of the knowledge they have built up at the Academy into a real life setting.
“We are always on the look-out for the next generation of engineers and this partnership with the WMG Academy is one that is mutually beneficial.”
