The Centre for Additive Manufacturing (CfAM) has a research focus on next-generation, multi-material Additive Manufacturing (AM) processes, materials, and computational methods.

The ambition of this work is to establish the scientific groundwork for the exploitation of multi-functional AM processes, the manufacture of end-use, multifunctional products via additive manufacturing and 3D printing.

The activity of the group spans both fundamental and applied research focused on Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing.

The major research theme is therefore to concentrate on enabling greater potential value and application by integrating additional engineering or systems functionality within a single component.

The Centre for Additive Manufacturing (CfAM) is the host of several large grants from EPSRC, Innovate UK, Industry and other funders.
