Summary on Grant Application Form
Materials processing is going through a period of rapid change driven by the need to improve their performance in-service but also by the socio-economic drivers of reducing process waste and emissions. To address these challenges the overall objective of the Advanced Metals Processing theme is to establish a world leading facility for metals discovery, processing, characterisation, upscaling and manufacturing, with a view to creating a link through to the digitally integrated, sustainable and resource efficient factory of the future. The focus will be on metals process innovation in the "missing gap" between small-scale laboratory metals processing and the industrial scale. It will address the key themes of materials discovery, resource efficient materials manufacture, light weighting, flexible manufacturing, prototyping and production scale-up.
