Building possibilities

We work with partners to invent bespoke solutions to unique manufacturing challenges. Using our network with the research centres situated in the Clayton precinct and our broader Australian and international network, we are able to draw on a number of different cutting edge capabilities and expertise and apply them in novel and innovative ways to provide new opportunities for manufacturers.

Combining for strength

The Monash Centre for Additive Manufacturing takes their most recent discoveries in alloy and metallurgical science and find ways to apply them in real world applications – working with partners who need stronger, lighter, more cost effective components. Our global aerospace industry partnerships are profiting from their relationship with us, as we:

  • Provide bespoke solutions
  • Create solutions to reduce the carbon footprint
  • Manufacture new designs and complex geometries
  • Produce new materials with improved balanced properties to achieve higher fuel efficiency and performance
  • Increase their global competitiveness
  • Design new processes to reduce manufacturing waste
