The AMRC Composite Centre is a state-of-the-art facility for advanced composite manufacturing research and development, based in a dedicated extension to the AMRC Factory of the Future.

In parallel to the AMRC's legacy expertise in metallic component manufacture, the AMRC Composite Centre is looking at using cutting edge methods to produce ultra lightweight components from the newer composite materials. These materials are increasingly used in aerospace, marine, automotive and other high-value industries because they offer high strength and light weight, but they also present a host of manufacturing challenges.

Our research focuses on producing and machining composite components, including hybrid parts combining high-performance metals and composites in a single structure. These structures can provide significant weight savings while maintaining the highest material and structural performance, offering improved fuel efficiency for aerospace and other transport applications.

Our main research area themes are:

Automated production

Composite machining

Advanced curing

Novel materials and processes
