:: Downer, UTS and IMCRC form research alliance


Through its Mineral Technologies business, Downer has formed an alliance with University of Technology Sydney (UTS) and Innovative Manufacturing CRC (IMCRC) to cooperatively research solutions that will revolutionise the way additive manufacturing can be used to significantly improve the production of mineral separation equipment and create new manufacturing technologies.

Additive manufacturing (AM), or 3D printing as it is also referred to, is the fastest-growing manufacturing sector worldwide. This is due to the many benefits it offers companies in terms of new product development, time to market, reduced waste and lower product cost. AM enables the rapid design and production of complex products and associated advanced business models such as customer-led design processes and just-in-time production.

Anticipated to run over a three-year period, the research alliance covers the first phase of the project. UTS will house all project work at a new additive manufacturing facility at its Broadway campus to network and brainstorm various conceptual ideas.
