The UK’s Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3) has awarded its 2021 Ivor Jenkins Medal to Roger Lawcock CEng FIMMM. The prestigious award is presented to individuals in recognition of a significant contribution that has enhanced the scientific, industrial or technological understanding of materials processing or component production using Powder Metallurgy and particulate materials.

During his career in PM, most recently at Stackpole International, Lawcock has focused on high volume, high performance automotive applications based on lean alloys, high temperature sintering and improvements to core and surface density.

Lawcock is one of the pioneers of the roll-densification process for gears, converting numerous gears from wrought to Powder Metallurgy. He has been instrumental during the material and design development phases of several award-winning components throughout his career.

On receiving his award, Lawcock commented, “Thank you so much for this award. I am honoured and thrilled to have received the Ivor Jenkins Medal and actually cannot think of the words to use to express my gratitude to all involved. I did meet Ivor a couple of times in the 1980s at PM ‘think-tank’ type meetings held in London, I was struck by his combined deep appreciation of academic knowledge and industrial application as well as his strong professional presence.”

Past winners of the Ivor Jenkins award include Prof Herbert Danninger (2020), Dr Leo Prakash (2019), David Whittaker (2018), and John Dunkley (2016).
