Congratulations to our PhD academic Sascha Ruggaber

Project Engineer Sascha Ruggaber receives Industrial Fellowship to support his PhD work from the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851.

Congratulations to our PhD academic Sascha Ruggaber who has received an Industrial Fellowship from The Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851. Sascha was one of fourteen recipients chosen for this prestigious Industrial Fellowship, and receives funding from Prince Albert’s educational legacy to fund his work in ‘creating new technologies for the remanufacturing of automotive engines through the sustainable reclamation of components.’ Sascha is a Project Engineer with Autocraft and has recently completed his MSc in Manufacturing Management.  He started with Autocraft in 2013 as a graduate engineer, and continues his professional development with the support of the company and in collaboration with the University of Strathclyde.

Autocraft’s co-owner and commercial & engineering director Mike Hague-Morgan commented “this is a fantastic achievement for Sascha, Autocraft and the University of Strathclyde. Raw materials and energy will become even more expensive in years to come, it is so important that we find better ways of reclaiming engine components to further reduce the ‘new’ content required in a remanufactured engine. Sascha’s PhD project combined with the support from the 1851 Royal Commission and the university will help Autocraft to further increase its remanufactured content from 85% upwards. It also demonstrates Autocraft’s desire to support our graduates in their professional development.”

Each year the Commission awards Industrial Fellowships to the UK’s most promising young doctoral engineers and scientists. The Commission supports them to help bring their technologies to commercialisation and make an impact on businesses and society. Originally set up by Prince Albert following the Great Exhibition of 1851, the Industrial Fellowships recognise the best research that could advance British industry and award them funds to bring them to market.

Bernard Taylor, Chairman of the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851, said: “Ensuring Britain’s young scientists and engineers are supported is crucial to ensuring that the UK is at the forefront of innovation in the years to come. Our Industrial Fellowships are designed to fund and commercialise the most promising technologies that could shape our society in the future. This year, we have awarded more Fellowships than ever before, and the breadth of technologies we are supporting, from artificial intelligence, to clean power and potential cures for most deadly diseases demonstrates that the talent in the UK is only growing.”

The Industrial Fellowships provide graduates with the means to develop innovative technology with commercial potential, ideally leading to a patent, while completing a PhD or EngD. Each Fellow receives up to £80,000 worth of funding over three years for their work, which they will carry out in collaboration with an academic institution and a business partner. The programme plays a crucial role in facilitating collaboration between universities and industry, offering much sought after funding for research and development for new intellectual property. It also enables promising scientists and engineers to conduct research whilst gaining valuable industry experience.

Congratulations Sascha!

Autocraft exhibited for the first time in the UK at the Automechanika 2017 show at the NEC Birmingham, during 6-8 June. Autocraft showcased its OEM-standard engine build capability, with visitors to the stand participating in using the ‘No Fault Forward’ technology to correctly torque bolts on a Ford Sigma Cam Cover.

Widely billed as the UK’s leading exhibition for the automotive aftermarket and supply chain, Autocraft was situated in the heart of the Supply Chain Zone. Visitors to the stand also learned of Autocraft’s specially developed PTWA/RSW cylinder bore coating technology and cylinder head and block machining capability.

The stand was shared and co-branded with sister-company Vertex Engineering Solutions, who displayed an array of prototype and low volume component capability. Machined components including Aston Martin V12 inlet manifolds were on display, together with Vertex’s fixture design and manufacture capability and mould & die machining expertise.

See us at ReMaTec 2017!
