The centre aims to make Australian manufacturers dominant in the multi-billion dollar mining equipment sector by training innovators to design the world’s best highly customised long-life, wear resistant components.
Our research involves rapid development of customised alloys that excel in severe mining conditions, using three-dimensional printing, novel characterisation and through our networked training environment. These innovations will enable much needed efficiencies in the industry.
Anticipated outcomes are the design of products with superior alloy design and material selection; jobs growth and security in the mining component production sector; and increased mining efficiency and cost reduction.
