Alongside our collaborative partners, GKN Aerospace, Siemens, AMRC and the University of Sheffield, CFMS is shortlisted for the Manufacturing Technology award for the Additive Industrialisation for Future Technology (AIRLIFT) project.
The AIRLIFT project, funded by the Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI), brings together experts to develop novel additive manufacturing (AM) methods for the aerospace industry. The project focuses on making AM serial production ready at high rates and exploring using AM to revolutionise and accelerate innovation in complex manufacturing product design.
AIRLIFT demonstrates how CFMS is using digital prototyping within the design and development cycle to optimise manufacturing processes by reducing time and cost whilst significantly improving the carbon footprint.
Our digital engineering expertise in premium multi-physics modelling and simulation combined with our on-site, commercially secure data centre enabled us to define and develop private cloud based digital twins. Collaborating on this project allows industry and academia to access next-generation innovative tools and technologies, enabling modernisation within aerospace product development.
Being shortlisted for this award further highlights CFMS’ capabilities in advancing and maturing disruptive technologies, enabling industries to accelerate innovation.
