The overall aim of the AMCOR project is to develop and demonstrate a flexible and automated manufacturing process for the repair, coating and near net shape production of components composed of functionally graded materials (FGMs).


AMCOR will offer a step change in the performance and reliability of components for extended in-service life across a broad range of industries where wear is a key problem. This will be delivered by the combined development of material deposition procedures, supported by powder development, computational modelling and materials characterisation and testing, and of manufacturing systems integrating novel multiple powder delivery systems, automated tool path generation software and advanced novel sensing, monitoring and adaptive feedback systems.
