IES is a multi-disciplinary engineering body, founded in Scotland in 1857, that provides a forum in which individuals from all engineering and related disciplines can discuss and exchange information, generate ideas and encourage young engineers. IES works with kindred bodies to promote a wider understanding of the role of the professional engineer in society.
The Journal of Engineering is now under open access.

IES - hybrid event - Eliminating the performance gap : Engineering value : Reducing energy: Minimising carbon
That new buildings too often consume many times more energy in reality than their designers predict at design stage – known as the “performance gap” - is a scandal.
This lecture will outline Architype’s radical approach to…

An important German foundry turned again to Clansman Dynamics for a solution that would improve productivity in their casting fettling department. Our 6-axis grinding manipulator provided twice the usable torque compared to their existing machine and the ability to use larger and, importantly, longer grinding tools. This paper describes the technical difficulty encountered; the design problems in achieving a solution for improving the life of the grinding tooling and the lessons learned in the painful task of innovation under severe pressure.
