News: AMRC offer free design, prototyping and testing for SMEs


The University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) with Boeing, is offering Yorkshire SMEs two days of cost-free business support from its new Design Prototype and Test Centre on the Advanced Manufacturing Park in Rotherham.

Set to open soon, the 2,700 sq m extension to an existing building will bring together design and prototyping with structural testing, key areas in the research of high-value manufacturing sectors such as aerospace, energy, motorsport and medical technology. The AMRC works with companies along the supply chain to identify and resolve advanced manufacturing problems.

More than doubling the size of the original building that opened in 2004, the centre has secured funding from the European Regional Development Fund and High Value Manufacturing Catapult.
To launch the new centre and demonstrate support for local business, the AMRC is offering small and medium-sized manufacturers in the Yorkshire & Humber region two days of free business assistance.

The programme gives qualifying companies free access to the AMRC's multi-disciplinary team of design and testing engineers, to help companies develop new products or improve current capabilities.

Derek Boaler, head of design at The AMRC, said: "The new AMRC Design Prototype & Test Centre will be a national hub for design engineering, and we're delighted to give Yorkshire businesses the opportunity to take advantage of our expertise.

"We can help manufacturers move innovative new designs from first concept through to fully tested pre-production prototype, and create high-value products that are designed, tested and made in Britain. If we can help your business, we want to hear from you."
