Following the Materials for Architecture exhibition early on in the year, TWI Innovation Network welcomed Reedway, a specialist metal working SME from the UK, to explore the accelerated innovation programme (AIP) and the surrounding innovation centres at TWI. Reedway offer bespoke services from design to manufacture of metallic structures and components that are being used and serviced in various industry sectors; arts, architecture, buildings, as well as transport and energy applications. As part of the very first visit to TWI, several materials and joining process techniques, along with instrumentation for testing (both destructive and non-destructive), were available to demonstrate and observe areas of collaboration between the industry and academia at TWI HQ.
