World-class metals research

Boeing and Swinburne have joined together to establish a new Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AusAMRC). The centre resides in Hawthorn, Melbourne and will support companies that form Boeing’s supply chain by discovering improved manufacturing techniques.

“Swinburne was our choice because of its world-class capability in metals research,” says Al Bryant, General Manager of Boeing Research and Technology Australia.

The centre will focus on high performance machining of titanium and aluminium alloys; hybrid metal-composite components to create strong, load-bearing surfaces; and advanced tooling for integrated composite structures. The goal is to achieve higher quality components at a lower cost to remain internationally competitive.
