Adapt to survive: managing change processes in manufacturing

Shannon Coiled Springs (SCS) was chosen as a case study for the Forfás Making it in Ireland – Manufacturing 2020 project because of the company’s strategy of diversifying from its base in construction products to identifying new market opportunities and technologies in the medical devices field. SCS is based in Limerick and was founded in 1978 to supply the construction sector, manufacturing wall ties and springs. The company had gained some 60-70% of the construction market for wall ties ...

Predicting rupture of abdominal aortic aneurysms

Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a ‘silent killer’, responsible for 15,000 deaths annually in the UK alone. This cardiovascular disease is termed a ‘silent killer’ due to its deadly but somewhat symptomless nature. The majority of people with AAA are completely unaware of its presence and it is often only detected following a frequently fatal rupture of the structure. AAA is a balloon-like dilation occurring in the abdominal region of the aorta, which is the main blood vessel responsible ...

Engineering system improves Limerick’s water-supply network

Limerick’s water supply network has been improved through the use of pipeline cleaning technology, which has improved capacity and flow rates of trunk mains. The cleaning system took water from the raw water source to the Clareville treatment works by the river Shannon. Powered by water recycling vehicles, this was the first time that the Typhoon cleaning system has been utilised in Ireland, using water-jetting technology to clean internal pipe walls and remove solid mineral build-up and ...
