PhD student Roshan completed industry placement

Roshan completed his industry placement with Bradken Pty Ltd in December 2022. He worked at their manufacturing plant in Bassendean, West Australia. The placement focused on industrial scale manufacturing of experimental wear resistant high-chromium weld overlays that were developed as a part of Roshan’s PhD project. During the placement, Roshan also worked closely with Bradken on the application of a robotic arm welding set-up for rapid alloy fabrication and testing. The alloys manufactured at Bassendean will be analysed and tested at Deakin University at IFM’s advanced characterisation facilities.

Roshan would like to thank Bradken, mineAlloy and Deakin’s Graduate Research Academy (GRA) for their support.
