AMRC Castings provides advanced casting expertise and manufacturing capabilities; including computer process modelling, design for casting manufacture, rapid low-volume manufacture of precision castings and casting process and materials research, for aerospace and other high-value manufacturing sectors.

Research & development

AMRC Castings plays a vital role in setting the agenda for Research, Innovation and Development. Its unique un-biased position ensures it this can be done for the benefit of the industry and the sectors in which castings are, or could be used.

AMRC Castings are developing new casting technologies and techniques and providing advanced casting expertise, including computer process modelling, design for casting manufacture, rapid low-volume manufacture of precision castings and casting process and materials research. Developments often expand the scope of the castings process so that it can be used as an alternative to fabricating or machining critical components from solid, increasing performance, reducing cost and eliminating material waste.

Development projects fall into two categories:

Funded Projects

Innovative projects carried out on behalf of the partnership, with results presented to all partners. These projects are usually funded by outside agencies such as the Technology Strategy Board, European Framework Program, or other external body, and may involve collaboration with external research and industrial partners.

Bespoke Projects

Specific projects for individual partners. The partner invests directly in the research and has exclusive access to the outputs of the project.
