The Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre helps UK manufacturers win work in the civil nuclear sector – in new build, operations and decommissioning.
The Nuclear AMRC combines academic innovation with industry expertise to help UK manufacturers improve capabilities and performance along the supply chain. 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 workshop 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 business support to help manufacturers enter the nuclear supply chain and compete worldwide. The Fit For Nuclear programme is a unique diagnostic tool which lets companies measure their operations against the standards required to supply the nuclear industry, and take the necessary steps to close any gaps.
The Nuclear AMRC is backed by industry leaders and government, and managed by the University of Sheffield. It is part of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, a national alliance of seven leading manufacturing research centres.
