Manufacturing Technology & Process Development
Manufacturing technology provides the tools that enable production of all manufactured goods. These key tools of industry magnify the effort of individual workers and give an industrial nation the power to turn raw materials into the affordable, cost effective, innovative, high quality goods essential to today's society. Development of Manufacturing Technology underpins the capability that AMAP has today, with advanced solutions continuously being investigated, developed or implemented. AMAP is committed to the development of robust and production-grade solutions, working with our network of academic and industrial partners to achieve Best-in-Class capability across the full portfolio of manufacturing technology themes.
Some of the primary Manufacturing Technology themes that AMAP are currently active across are:
• Advanced Machining
• Material Forming
• Joining and Welding
• Advanced Measurement
• Robotics and Automation
• Rapid Prototyping and Additive Manufacturing
• Manufacturing Process Modelling and Simulation Technology
The aim is to provide cost, quality and/or productivity improvements or new methods to improve manufacturing efficiency and enhance the way products are brought to market and produced.
