AMS Research Group Hosts CIRP Manufacturing Technology Day


In May 2013, the AMS research group played host to the CIRP UK Manufacturing technology day. CIRP is the international academy for production engineering and recognised across the world as being at the forefront of manufacturing technology. The AMS research group has strong connections to the group, with strong involvement and activity within the group. Prof. Byrne was the president of the group from 2009-2010.

The CIRP manufacturing day was held as part of the 2 day meeting of the CIRP UK and featured many exciting talks from both industrial and academic research. The manufacturing day feature guests such as Prof. Marco Santochi and Prof. Rajkumar Roy with Gavin Campbell of Bomdardier Belfast reporting on some of the their research activities. The event was also an excellent opportunity for academia and industry to come together and discuss the future of manufacturing. This was denoted through the excellent chaired debate.
