Who are we?


The Australian Research Council (ARC) Training Centre for Automated Manufacture of Advanced Composites (AMAC) is established under the Industrial Transformation Research Program (ITRP) of the Australian Government. The University of New South Wales (UNSW) led Centre is a collaboration between the Australian National University (ANU), the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and nine industry partners. The partnering industries include the Ford Motor Company, Omni Tankers, Advanced Composite Structures Australia, Australian Institute of Sports, Carbonix, AFPT, FEI, the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO), and the Defence Science and Technology Group (DST-G).
The AMAC centre will incubate the next generation of automated composite manufacturing innovations and innovators to drive future business in a highly collaborative environment. AMAC lowers the barriers for Australian industry to access, engage, adopt and propagate automated composite manufacturing innovations.
