Research & Development
We maintain our position of global leaders in cold roll forming technology through our commitment to, and investment in, Research & Development – led by an in-house team of research and product development engineers.
The highly experienced and qualified engineers within Strolar Mounting Systems (SMS) represent a significant proportion of the global expertise in this field and are dedicated to the development of ever-more efficient products and processes. They work in collaboration with academic and scientific institutions across the UK, publishing dozens of research papers and maintaining an internal academic research portfolio since 1985.
Areas in which we assist our customers include the provision of structural design calculations, material evaluation and product specifications – we also support the integration of existing process technologies and the development of new ones.
In-house physical testing capabilities allow for theoretical development as well as the physical validation of prototypes.
