The University of Sheffield’s Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) has forged a partnership with global aviation supplier GKN Aerospace to develop advanced technologies for your aerospace industry.
The AMRC works closely with global leaders within the aerospace industry to build up innovative technology, manufacturing techniques and methods.
It has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with GKN Aerospace to advance a few research themes they may be developing together at the AMRC’s state-of-the-art Factory 2050, the dedicated collaborative research factory house to the Integrated Manufacturing Group.
GKN Aerospace may be a strategic supplier to Airbus, Boeing and various leading aircraft manufacturers, and plays a crucial role in britain aerospace industry.
It has been a an associate the AMRC for a number of several Colin Sirett, AMRC CEO, said the MoU not just reflects the strategic nature on the relationship backward and forward organisations but it will bring significant benefits to each side.
“The intent behind signing the MoU is usually to recognise the strategic role the AMRC is playing and then to drive forward the important more manual workload and technological development we are starting with GKN Aerospace,” he explained.
“What you will find investigating in a package on the job with them is future manufacturing systems and digital linkage of such systems when using the customer additionally, the growth of metallic machining technology.
“The AMRC may also get a core role in developing the Wing of Tomorrow technology with GKN Aerospace. Fraxel treatments will likely be massive scale assembly, metal materials machining and opportunities for castings.
“The plus point in the MoU for all of us would it be enables us to perform closely and effectively with companies that observe the AMRC among their strategic partners.”
GKN works closely with universities, knowledge institutes, suppliers and customers to lead a in developing new technology to improve aircraft efficiency – lowering aircraft cost, weight and emissions.
It serves much more than 90% earth’s aircraft and engine manufacturers and its technology is utilised in aircraft ranging from single aisle aircraft plus the largest passenger planes on the globe to business jets and advanced fighter aircraft.
Paul Perera, VP Global Technology at GKN Aerospace, said their bond will expand the collaborative research already underway backward and forward organisations.
As part of the agreement, Robert Sharman, the international Head of Additive Manufacturing at GKN Aerospace, will attempt to work with the AMRC’s additive manufacturing research team as a possible associate professor.
