Additive Manufacturing Innovation Centre

Advancing AM Technologies with AI, Machine Learning, and New Materials

Additive Manufacturing Innovation Centre


The Additive Manufacturing Centre (AMIC) operates as a long term strategic partnership between TWI Ltd and Lancaster University, and is the second Innovation Centre established within this structure. The centre undertakes research to develop the international profile and reputation of both partners in relation to additive manufacturing (AM), including the complete value chain of design and build optimisation, prototyping, performance validation and product industrialisation. AMIC’s mission is to become a world class centre specialising in AM technologies and grow a portfolio of activities, including innovation projects and PhD studies, with testing and inspection methodologies applied in industries ranging from aerospace, automotive and consumer goods through to spare parts, small series production, tooling and medical implants.



AMIC’s objective is to develop new technologies that combine additive manufacturing with artificial intelligence and machine learning, as well look into new material approaches and processing.

Core areas

  • Additive manufacturing (AM) with artificial intelligence and machine learning
  • New material approaches and processing for AM
