The Institute for Automotive & Manufacturing Advanced Practice – AMAP, is part of the Faculty of Applied Sciences within the University of Sunderland. AMAP - Background
Industrial applications Digital engineering technologies Partnership training Valuable services to manufacturers International Research Automotive Manufacturing Maintenance engineering Ultra low carbon vehicle technology Practical expertise & problem solving solutions
AMAPs Basic working Principle To improve or develop the current state of a company or individual. Applied to: SMEs Major corporations Individuals
AMAPs Facilities Our spacious CAE training suites are equipped with hi-spec workstations, smart boards and modern ergonomic furniture and seating. All training rooms have access to most modern digital engineering technology (DET) software applications and we work closely with all software OEM's and VAR partners to ensure the highest standards and vendor accredited training. Our Factory facilities include state of the art Rapid Prototyping, 3D Scanning, Inspection, Reverse Engineering and CNC Manufacturing processes, together with a wide range of digital engineering software technologies. CNC Machining Centre and Lathe 3D Scanning & Reverse Engineering 3D Printing & Rapid Prototyping
New line setup for Tier 1 Automotive Supplier Major investment in new production line. Aided the client with 3d inspection and verification against native design on the customers site Client feedback currently suggesting that quality on this line is now not only exceeding internal operations but also America, China and Japan. This is due to the process of verification of line setup.
WIA Music New product introduction. Designed to hang guitars on walls or ceilings with minimum visibility. AMAP assisted WIA Music in the following areas: Required design FEA, Stress analysis Rapid Prototype Consultation with Mould manufacturer
5 Axis CNC Machining Full 5 Axis CNC machining CNC Lathe Powered by Delcam manufacturing software Specialist one off component manufacturers Full inspection and reporting service Suggested markets: Oil and Gas Aerospace Mould and Die Defence New product introduction
