CTC the Future and new technology

The last few years has seen collaboration with the Advanced Manufacturing Supply Chain Initiative .The purpose of this project is to focus on the design of products being linked to production methods across likely volume ranges to ensure that initial prototypes are designed in such a way as to provide a seamless progression as volume requirements increase through various stages of commercialisation and production.

The research attached to our AMSCI project has lead tocollaboration with Manchester University Faculty of Engineering to provide facilities to assist in their development plans and get their assistance to enhance our activities, which has led to the joint initiative into their ‘HyValue’ project . This will be achieved through the development of a novel system comprising both additive and subtractive manufacturing processes linked by metrology and manufacturing process data.
