Studer S41 CNC universal cylindrical grinding machine installed in AMRC

The University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) with Boeing is a world-class centre for advanced machining and materials research for aerospace and other high-value manufacturing sectors. Now boasting more than 80 member companies, this partnership between industry and academia has become a model for research centres worldwide.

Since 2013, the AMRC has targeted the development of a Grinding Centre of Excellence to complement the existing milling and turning capabilities that have been established within the Machining Group.
