Advanced Interactive Materials Science Limited (AIMS), based in Peterborough, UK, will be exhibiting at the Advanced Engineering UK show, Birmingham, November 4-5, 2015, and plans to display a number of its high performance Powder Metallurgy products. AIMS manufactures components for a variety of industries and specialises in the use of PM and Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) processes.

The helicoidal motor stator from AIMS will be on


Since establishing an exclusive supply agreement with Accura earlier this year, the company states that it has seen a surge in enquiries from the Oil and Gas industry for HIP’ed consolidated components that use near-net shaping methods. This allows the end user to have greater confidence in the mechanical properties, component reliability and extended life, states AIMS. The process uses powdered metals to form solid structures and enables components to be manufactured without the need for second stage machining.  

Amongst the products on display will be AIMS’ patented helicoidal mud motor stator featuring a telemetry hole that can resist the abrasive, corrosive and erosive conditions of modern day drilling techniques. AIMS will also be showing its HIP’ed venturi valve, developed in partnership with Accura, which is demonstrating the enhanced mechanical properties available from this process.

“Accura’s global sales reach and understanding of HIP’ed areas of opportunity has enabled both companies to work together in the Oil and Gas sector and leverage our combined strengths,” stated Accura Group CEO, David Williams.

“We are experiencing growing demand domestically and internationally for our Sagittite® and near-net shaping capabilities, not only from the Oil and Gas industries but also Food Processing, Nuclear and Aerospace manufacturers, for which we are developing new, bespoke materials,” stated Mark Hodgkins, AIMS Managing Director.

“Our leading-edge manufacturing technology and patented techniques enhance the saving of energy, materials and labour costs, this allows complex structures to be made from our family of metal matrix composite materials.  Advanced Engineering 2015 gives us the opportunity to showcase the advancements we have made in this area.”

AIMS is one of three UK based manufacturing companies on stand H51 in Hall 5.  As part of the Alycidon Group, it will be joined by automotive component manufacturer GE Precision Engineering and extreme environment precision measurement manufacturer, Instrumentel.
