A world-class centre for advanced manufacturing. Open to manufacturers of all sizes.

Our research and development focuses on industry’s commercial requirements and provides lasting value to members.

Our 100-plus industrial members range from global giants like Boeing, Rolls-Royce, BAE Systems and Airbus to small companies, but you don’t have to be a member to take advantage of our world-leading expertise and resources, which are open to manufacturers of all sizes.

At the AMRC, we will have access to some of the world’s finest composites and materials research capabilities, and I look forward to building a world-class facility.

Correcting CAD models for SLM build defects

The Design and Prototyping Group (DPG) at the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) has successfully investigated methods of correcting CAD models for selective laser melting (SLM) build defects as part of the Symbionica project. The Symbionica project aims to develop a reconfigurable machine for the hybrid additive and subtractive manufacturing of next generation fully personalised bionics and smart prosthetics.
