Knowledge Hub

Welcome, to the Farrat Knowledge Hub 

Here you can access free learning resources related to some of the industry’s most complex engineering challenges, as well as our innovative ideas, R&D and the case analysis behind the solutions we design to combat them. 

Engineers, architects, manufacturers and skilled industry professionals are responsible for addressing some of the biggest challenges facing the world, both now and in the future.  

Meeting these challenges head-on can only happen if you keep up with, create and implement the latest developments in technology and ideas.  

Watch our short introduction video to find out more about how Farrat approaches CPD and how you can keep your knowledge and skills up to date. Or jump in and access our learning modules below.

The drive to produce robust, low energy buildings is often at loggerheads with the notion of ‘design’ in architecture – a term commonly conceived to involve aesthetic concerns, along with light and space, but divorced from concerns about the building’s energy performance, thermal comfort and robustness.

To design-led architects,  does a rigid focus on minimisation of thermal bridging lead to prosaic, dull architecture? Can architects ignore thermal bridging in design, and use proprietary thermal breaks as a get out of jail free card, or just ignore the issue and leave the sustainability to technical solutions by the M&E consultants?  

This round table event on a hot button topic that is central to the industry’s ability to decarbonise buildings, will involve a panel of leading experts in the field, including short presentations and a lively debate on key questions related to thermal bridging such as: how seriously does the industry needs to take it? To what extent does it requires new approaches to design? To what extent can designers rely on proprietary solutions? Would some of the landmark pieces of architecture globally be possible today?

Thermal Breaks: Freedom of architectural expression vs building physics.

Controlling vibration and chatter to improve quality and output in strip and sheet metal manufacturing.

LIVE Technical Webinar hosted in partnership with IMechE Switzerland. Delivered by Youssef Benhafsi, Principle Engineer of Industrial Vibration Analysis at Farrat and Florian Cabaret, Applications Engineer of Industrial Applications at Farrat.

Webinar on industrial vibration control

This technical webinar will explore the various sources of vibration that can affect strip marking in steel and aluminium rolling mills. Real case studies will be used to describe how these vibrations are addressed in practice, both in terms of improving the structural dynamics of rolling mills & grinding machines and also in providing the necessary tools that address the process side of things. Such as monitoring systems, which will help the operators find the best conditions that minimise the occurrence of vibrations during rolling and grinding.

A post process roll inspection system, called Chatter_Detect, is also described, which is proving to be invaluable in detecting invisible chatter marks on the finished roll.

Why partake in Continuing Professional Development (CPD)? 

CPD is a fundamental part of any career – ensuring ‘professionally registered and active’ professionals keep up to date by constantly learning and improving, to develop skills and stay at the cutting edge.  

In a fast-moving world, CPD supports you both to work safely, legally and effectively. It also shows you’re committed to lifelong learning and is a way of demonstrating professional pride in what you do.  

Not only will CPD aid your contribution to your field of expertise, but it’ll help you get the most out of your career and enable you to make lives better.
