Science & Research
Our list of customers in this field include; CERN, CEA, Elytt and Brookhaven internationally with UKAEA divisions Cullum, Harwell, Rutherford and Diamond Light in the U.K.
As part of our work in the Science & Research sector, we have gained a solid reputation for the supply of magnet assembly low carbon steel Yokes and stainless steel Collar laminations for prototype and upgrades to the Hadron Collider.
As a major Busbar manufacturer in the UK we have also supplied both Copper and Aluminium projects for several of the facilities listed above.
Further, we have supplied electrical steel laminations, EDM, Laser Cutting, CNC Machining and Finishing services to these sites.
We have Fit for Nuclear (F4N) as well as other relevant accreditations.
Should you have an enquiry of a Scientific nature, please feel free to make contact and we can discuss further.
We have expert engineers on hand to discuss your bespoke requirements and offer technical advice and support for manufacturing, material selection and design assistance.

It quickly became apparent that the team at HV Wooding were capable of really adding to the performance of the components we were developing. They were not content with just providing what was initially required, they wanted to optimise both price and performance
We are very pleased with the outcome of this new assembly, and the quality of the item you have delivered is excellent. It would seem the effort put into modelling it has really paid off. What I was hoping to achieve was a reduction in component count, weight and cost and we have achieved all of these. Consolidation of 5 main parts and their related fasteners into this one item. Weight reduction from 13kg down to 6kg! The cost reduction is also significant!
Just wanted to make you all aware we are very happy with the quality and consistency that H V Wooding are producing. The clips are the best we have had for a long time and it is nice to not have the stoppages with quality issues. Long may it continue.
Science & Research - CERN
A twin-aperture, 10 m long, prototype magnet was designed by CERN to gain experience in the construction of full scale twin-aperture Dipole Magnets. HV Wooding were given the task to produce the Twin-aperture Dipole magnet Laminations.

Ventilator Challenge UK
British engineering firms were called on to switch to making medical ventilators as concern grew about the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. This follows an appeal by Boris Johnson, who held an emergency conference appealing for an urgent effort to address the national shortage.
Next generation of Tidal Turbines
A Global manufacture in the “Renewables Sector” are developing the next generation of Tidal Turbines. In order to optimise engineering performance they needed a partner to help facilitate both the design and manufacturing solution of “Laminate Sections” for the Permanent Magnet Generator.
High Volume of Metal Stampings and Busbars
A leading Global manufacturer of Electrical Automation and Control Solutions have a high volume of Metal Stampings and Busbars used within their product groups. These include regular repeat items and also spot ordered parts that are delivered to multiple locations.
“Hybrid Drivetrain” for Motorsport and Transportation applications
A Global manufacturer of “Hybrid Drivetrain” for Motorsport and Transportation applications. A key market for flywheel energy storage technology is the public transport sector. This technology can save fuel and reduce green house gas emissions by up to 30% in a city bus for example.
Strategic outsourcing partner
A leading international manufacturer of electrical accessories were producing all components in house. In order to focus on core activities and increase profitability, they needed a strategic outsourcing partner that they could trust. After a detailed evaluation, they decided to outsource all presswork components to HV Wooding.
