With £17.4 million of support from the EPSRC, Brunel University London and industry, we opened the Advanced Metal Casting Centre (AMCC) on Brunel’s campus in Uxbridge in April 2016. Housing pilot and commercial metals processing equipment in a 1,500 m2 purpose-built building, the AMCC acts as a national scale-up facility to bridge the gap between fundamental, laboratory-scale research and full-scale industrial trials.
The Advanced Metal Processing Centre (a further 1500 m2) will house additional equipment to further expand our capability in the application of new technology to full scale industrial evaluation. Our latest building is due for completion in March 2017 and will contain advanced joining, measurement and characterisation technology.
