The University of Sheffield’s Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC), which researches additive manufacturing (AM), has become a regional partner of Sheffield Digital, an organisation for businesses and individuals involved in the city’s digital industries.

‘The 4th Industrial Revolution (aka Industry 4.0) is being driven by digital technology, so it makes absolute sense to build closer links between local digital companies and the region’s manufacturers,’ said Rab Scott, the AMRC’s Head of Digital. ‘The digital sector needs to know about the needs of manufacturing and manufacturers need to understand the capabilities of digital technologies.’
