UNSW researchers awarded for innovative marine propeller bladeResearchers at UNSW Sydney have taken out a JEC Asia Innovation Award for their research, testing and production of a “shape adaptive marine propeller” that promises more efficient and longer-lasting propellers for marine applications. UNSW Engineering Professor Gangadhara Prusty accepted the marine category award at a ceremony in Seoul last week, on behalf of the Australian Research Council (ARC) Training Centre for Automated Manufacture of Advanced Composites (AMAC) and program partners the Australian Defence Science and Technology Group (DST).
AMAC welcomes SDI Limited as an AMAC Industry AffiliateThis partnership through the recently awarded CRC-P (Round 7),"Dentistry without Mercury", will not only support the commercial production of dental materials but also a new polymerisation shrinkage measurement device (profilometer) and a novel glass fibre cutting machine. Bestech Australia and Dentalk joins this consortium together with University of Sydney and University of Wollongong. Read more about how this partnership which started from a 2016 ARC Linkage Grant progressed into a $3 million CRC-P funding success built on a strong collaborative relationship between industry and university.
Development of a prototype road tanker unit for commercialisation in the US marketAMAC is excited to contribute to this project led by our foundational partner, Omni Tanker which will transform its business into a global concern and therefore increase Australian employment. The objective of this project is to design and produce a prototype road-tanker, then undertake a field-trial in the US that enables Omni Tanker to validate and commercialise its technology in the US market. On completion of this project Omni Tanker will have validated the prototype in an operational environment and demonstrated low rate production.
New industry partnership explores Australia’s manufacturing potentialUNSW Sydney and the Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre (AMGC) and St George Banking Group have announced a strategic partnership to advance Australian research and accelerate the introduction and commercialisation of new manufacturing technologies. The partnership is designed to help Australia unlock its competitive edge in manufacturing by bringing together three different streams of the Australian economy — research, industry and banking.
AMGC backs project to automate vehicle panel repair
The Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre (AMGC) is supporting a collaborative project with Tradiebot Industries to deliver the world’s first automated vehicle panel repair system.
As part of the project, Tradiebot Industries will collaborate with the University of New South Wales (UNSW) ARC Training Centre for Automated Manufacture of Advanced Composites (AMAC) on developing a robotic control system to carry out physical repairs on damaged vehicle panels.
Tradiebot’s chief creator, Mario Dimovski said the project seeks to achieve a shift from manual production jobs, towards a more customised, smart and competitive manufacturing model, backed by high skilled workers.
