The AMRC Integrated Manufacturing Group (IMG) are driving world-class reconfigurable manufacturing technology.
IMG works with industrial and academic partners to bring together advanced technologies, such as robotics, augmented reality and large-volume metrology, to develop innovative, integrated systems that ensure complex structures are assembled perfectly, the first time and every time.
The Group’s new £43 million home is Factory 2050, the UK’s first state of the art factory entirely dedicated to conducting collaborative research into reconfigurable robotic, digitally assisted assembly and machining technologies. The facility is designed to address the rising need for high variation and mass customisation manufacturing throughout a diverse range of engineering sectors.
Factory 2050 will respond to requests for new products to be manufactured by optimising its own operations, using ‘Big Data’ technology to process large volumes of information, collected from sensors on each machine, cell and the building itself.
For details of our technology research themes and equipment capabilities, please download our IMG capability brochure.
Our main research themes are:
- Digitally assisted assembly
- Integrated large volume metrology
- Robotics and automation
- Manufacturing informatics
