News: AMRC achieves top honours with Rolls-Royce


A team consisting of members from Rolls-Royce, Technicut and the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) in Rotherham has won the prestigious 2009 Sir Henry Royce Awards for Technical Innovation, for the revolutionary Mega-Flute tooling technology. The technology is used in the machining of a broad spectrum of aeroengine components and features in both titanium and nickel alloys. The true benefits are yet to be fully quantified, but it is anticipated that this revolution in milling technology will deliver significant cost reductions. Technicut's manufacturing director, Mark Kirby said: "To have been honoured with this award for our combined effort with Rolls-Royce and the AMRC demonstrates the true value of close working partnerships. I look forward to working with Rolls-Royce and the AMRC in fully implementing and further enhancing the revolutionary Mega-Flute technology." Technicut is a tier one partner of The University of Sheffield AMRC with Boeing and Rolls-Royce. Based on the Advanced Manufacturing Park in Rotherham the centre is at the forefront of the continued evolution of new cutting tool technologies to provide efficient machining solutions for the rapidly evolving aerospace sector.
