- design for X
- product and process verification
Other areas of expertise include: machining, integrated manufacturing, composites, castings, design and prototyping, structural testing, medical, additive manufacturing, virtual reality, robotics and automation, 3D printing.
AMRC Cymru supports businesses to engage and adopt Industry 4.0 technologies demystifying and de-risking the process through research, collaboration and knowledge.
