Our fundamental and applied research is driven by market requirements and focuses on design, materials and manufacturing and system development.
We provide integrated solutions to the aerospace, biomedical, defence, automotive, and power generation industries.
Our expertise spans laser technologies, materials science, digital design and additive manufacturing.
We undertake high-quality research of international standing and aim to:
Through RMIT’s Advanced Manufacturing Precinct, our staff access the latest in metal and polymer additive manufacturing systems as well as the high-end Computer Numerical Control machining centres.
Additionally, our researchers have access to RMIT's Microscopy and Microanalysis Facility (RMMF) and Micro Nano Research Facility (MNRF) for material characterization and analysis.
The Centre for Additive Manufacturing brings together key research staff within several schools to generate critical research mass in advanced manufacturing technology and design.
CEO of the Advanced Manufacturing Cooperative Research Centre (AMCRC) Andrew McLellan, cannot speak highly enough of the Centre for Additive Manufacturing or its director Milan Brandt.
McLellan credits Professor Brandt with helping shape the focus of his Centre.
"We've been in operation for seven years, and one of the things we've highlighted is that additive manufacturing is a technology of extremely high priority for Australian manufacturers," he says.
