The Advanced Manufacturing Precinct works with industry in a number of different ways.
Most notably we engage in:
- contract research
- training in the latest manufacturing technologies
- testing and analysis
- grant-based partnerships
- design optimisation support
- manufacturing process optimisation support
- student projects through our Engineering Learning Factory.
Although the Advanced Manufacturing Precinct offers access to technology and equipment that can speed up prototyping and manufacture processes, the partnerships we form with industry are generally much richer. Production of a prototype part is usually only the start of the relationship, as most lead to developing an understanding of the form and functionality and assurance of scaling to mass production.
Partnerships with industry often involve collaboration with other areas of RMIT’s capabilities, creating a conduit to access many experts and disciplines in the University.
We offer commercial applications across a broad range of industries, including:
- biomedical and dental
