Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre (UTC) in Manufacturing Technology
Welcome to the Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre (UTC) in manufacturing and on-wing technology at the University of Nottingham. We are a multi-disciplinary research team exploring all aspects of aerospace manufacture, with a particular interests in the areas of fixturing and on-wing inspection and repair robotic systems.
Beyond these core research interests the UTC also has expertise in; the design of special purpose manufacturing robotics, non-conventional machining processes (especially in difficult to cut materials), and in-process sensing and monitoring technologies.
