University Of Sheffield
The University of Sheffield AMRC is an internationally recognised centre for advanced machining and materials research for aerospace and other high-value manufacturing sectors. Based at the Advanced Manufacturing Park, located between Sheffield and Rotherham, AMRC includes the original Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre with Boeing, the Nuclear AMRC, and other specialised research centres and business support facilities.
“We were delighted to win the contract to supply the AMRC Training Centre with a range of metallurgical equipment. As part of their new training laboratory facilities, we have installed a range of hardness testers and surface measuring equipment. We have also supplied systems for material preparation including a Spectrographic MetCut abrasive cutting machine and an OmegaPol grinding and polishing machine. Additional equipment will be added as the centre develops.”
Paul Chippendale, Managing Director, Spectrographic
The relationship between the University of Sheffield and Spectrographic provides mutual benefits. Spectrographic is also helping to train the students in the use of the equipment, which forms an important part of the engineering syllabus. The university has agreed for Spectrographic to set up a new customer support centre at the AMRC Training Centre, which will allow the company to deliver training and support to a wider audience.
“The AMRC Training Centre provides training in the practical and academic skills that manufacturing companies need to compete globally, from apprenticeship through to doctorate and MBA level. We are pleased to be working with Spectrographic. Their products are very high quality, and the equipment training they provide is hugely beneficial to our students.”
Roger Davis-Green, Engineering Trainer at the AMRC Training Centre
