The Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre helps UK manufacturers win work across the nuclear sector – in new build, operations and decommissioning – and in other quality-critical industries. Its facilities and services are open to all.
The centre's engineers and sector specialists work with companies to develop innovative techniques and optimised processes for large-scale high-precision manufacturing. Companies can use the Nuclear AMRC's state-of-the-art workshops to develop and test new processes on production-scale machines without losing capacity in their own factories.
The Nuclear AMRC also provides a range of supply chain development support to help manufacturers enter the nuclear market and compete worldwide. The Fit For Nuclear programme is a unique diagnostic tool which lets companies measure their operations against industry requirements and close any gaps.
The Nuclear AMRC is backed by industry leaders and government, and owned by the University of Sheffield. As well as its core research factory on the Advanced Manufacturing Park in South Yorkshire, the centre operates a modularisation R&D facility in the North West, and Nuclear AMRC Midlands in Derby to develop new technology areas.
It is part of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, a national alliance of seven leading manufacturing research centres.
