The Institute for Advanced Manufacturing (IfAM) is running a series of monthly breakfast events specifically for the manufacturing sector. These events are being held within the state-of-the-art Advanced Manufacturing Building at the University of Nottingham and will also be live streamed for our audience who wish to join us virtually.

The Future Automated Aircraft Assembly Demonstrator Phase 2 (FA3D2) will deliver a national experimental testbed and technology demonstrator in digital and informatics enabled aerospace manufacturing technologies. It provides an opportunity for UK based aerospace manufacturing businesses to test, demonstrate and accelerate the implementation of new breakthrough technologies thus allowing them to compete on productivity, quality and cost with rival offshore businesses.

The FA3D2 facility will provide open access to a variety of UK companies with a specific focus on support for manufacturing SMEs. It will also support community engagement to attract future engineering graduates to careers in the aerospace industry.

The agenda for the event is as follows:

7:30-8:00 - Arrival & Registration, Refreshments & Breakfast, Networking

8:00-8:30 - What is the OmniFactory? - Dr. Alison Turner - CTO - Centre for Aerospace Manufacturing (CAM), University of Nottingham

8:30-9:00 - Tour and Live Demonstration of OmniFactory - CAM Team

9:00-9:30 - Networking and Close of Meeting

Free parking is available by the building, although guests will have to leave by 9:15am which is when parking charges commence. There is a Pay & Display car park a short walk from the building for attendees who wish to stay on longer.

This event is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund project Aerospace UP.
