    Case Studies

    Get a closer look at real-life applications through Goodfellow’s case studies. Learn how something works, get inspired or see a material come to life. Our case studies are handpicked to provide you with examples of a range of projects that Goodfellow has been a part of in the scientific or industrial community.

    View the Goodfellow highlights from a range of industries, such as academic research, art and design, manufacturing industries and research institutions.

    Art of Ceramics

    Sector:Academic Research
    Goodfellow provided high performance and advanced ceramics for a permanent exhibition at the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh. Spanning from the nineteenth century to present day the exhibition displays the impact of ceramic use on health and hygiene applications in domestic and medical settings.

    Science and Industry museum

    Sector:Academic Research
    Given a relationship that stemmed back to 2015, when Goodfellow provided materials for the Wonder Materials: Graphene and Beyond exhibition, museum staff once again contacted the Goodfellow technical team with a request for materials for their latest science workshop.

    Jordan Keaney - Coda

    Sector:Art and Design
    Traditional ceramic material is hard, stiff, heavy and solid. However, in the design sector there is a requirement for materials which are flexible and versatile. Foam material tends to be lightweight, soft, squishy and airy. When the two are put together to produce ceramic foam it enables the material to be incorporated into furniture design for homes.

    Metal Foams

    Sector:Manufacturing Industries
    Nickel foam provided by Goodfellow was used as a scaffold template for the creation, through chemical vapour deposition (CVD), of graphene foam. The design of graphene-based hybrid nanomaterials for photocatalytic applications is one of the most promising areas of research in the field of water remediation.

    Additive Flow

    Sector:Manufacturing Industries
    In traditional additive manufacturing (AM) methods, there have always been constraints in terms of what materials can be used. Additive manufacturing capable of building functional multi-material components has been a key challenge in recent years. The solution lies in Additive Flow’s multi-functional software, with multi-property capabilities, driven by a multi-physics approach.

    Additive Manufacturing (AM)

    Sector:Manufacturing Industries
    Material constraints and diversity are major barriers to turning 3D printing into a production process. Goodfellow has a growing line of additive manufacturing (AM) raw materials and is continually increasing its production supply with the advancement of constantly evolving AM technology for more than three decades.

    Platinum wires

    Sector:Research Institutions
    Goodfellow supplied platinum wires to aid an aerospace project. The Cassini-Huygens project was the first human-made object to land on a world in the distant outer solar system. 

    Light guides

    Sector:Research Institutions
    PMMA light guide supplied by Goodfellow on an aerospace project has helped to identify charged particles as part of the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS-02) on board the International Space Station.

    Satellites and engines

    Sector:Research Institutions
    Goodfellow has provided bespoke alloys for use by a world-leading aerospace manufacturer focused on satellites and engines. The client develops, produces and sells engines for commercial and military aircraft and satellites as well as offering a complete range of support services to airlines, armed forces and other operators, including fleet management.

    Sector focus: Automotive

    Sector:Manufacturing Industries
    Goodfellow provided the materials necessary for the development of an electric race car in the Formula Student project, which is an international engineering design competition comprising hundreds of teams across the world. These teams competed with their vehicles at a series of international events. With 8 cars in the portfolio, Goodfellow supported the development of the two latest prototypes, the FST 07e and FST 08e..

    Sector focus: Defence

    Sector:Research Institutions
    Wire provided by Goodfellow has been applied in the development of technical devices for the Defence sector. The components of these electrical devices are used by the army in a number of countries around Europe for different tactical applications. The quantities of the materials used were a few kilometres of wire.

    Sector focus: Healthcare

    Sector:Academic Research
    Early 2020 saw the beginning of a global pandemic, and though devastating, the outbreak has brought together businesses and organisations to achieve a common cause: protecting and caring for people around the world. Since then, Goodfellow has offered its support to several international initiatives in the fight against COVID-19. 

    Custom glass formations

    Sector:Manufacturing Industries
    The characteristics of glass provide the basis for the development of innovative glass formulations that can result in novel solutions to high-tech challenges. Goodfellow has thorough knowledge of glass formulations which is required for the raw materials to be used. 

    Sector focus: Manufacturing

    Sector:Academic Research
    The client is a world-leading engineering and scientific company with particular expertise in precision measurement and healthcare. Supplying products and services used in applications as diverse as jet engine and wind turbine manufacture, through to dentistry and brain surgery.
