ATKINS Project: a low-carbon manufacturing solution
by Charles Shields - Friday, 16 January 2009, 10:25 AM

A Loughborough University led project is set to revolutionise the way components for the aeronautical and automotive sectors are made, leading to a significant reduction in weight, wastage and CO2 emissions both at the manufacturing stage and during use.

The University’s Wolfson School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering will apply state-of-the-art Rapid Manufacturing (RM) techniques – also known as “Additive Manufacturing” – to make parts for aircraft and motor vehicles.
