Shaped metal deposition

The AMRC led an international team to bring a new manufacturing technique to the brink of commercialisation.

Eight academic and industrial partners from four countries collaborated on the European-funded Rapolac (Rapid Production of Large Aerospace Components) project. The three-year project developed the shaped metal deposition (SMD) process from an experimental proof of concept, to an automated manufacturing technology ready for use by a range of companies.
