The resilient processes program explores how to enhance manufacturing resilience at a micro level.
Led by Professor XiaoQi Chen, this program capitalises on Swinburne’s research expertise in a range of manufacturing process technologies: materials processing, surface engineering, inspection and instrumentation, re-manufacturing, green technologies and processes, ore processing, hydrogen science, energy optimisation and energy harvesting.
Within this program we develop resilient manufacturing solutions in close collaboration with industries such as the automotive, aerospace, steelmaking, energy, waste management and resource sectors.
These are the three research themes of this program, with additional focus areas and related projects within them.
Carbon reduction in manufacturing
Reduce carbon in manufacturing through adoption and management of renewable energy.
Materials processing and inspection technology
Develop advanced subtractive and additive manufacturing technologies.
Wealth from waste
Convert waste to products and re-cycle or re-purpose end-of-life products.
