AMRC with BOEING

AMRC with BOEING

Virtalis and The University of Sheffield’s Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) with Boeing have informally collaborated on various projects over the last seven years.

Virtalis has been a sponsor of AMRC since 2006 and is also involved in all AMRC projects involving a simulation element. AMRC is a collaboration between world-leaders in the aerospace supply chain, key government offices and international academic institutions. The AMRC is based in an impressive £10 million “Rolls-Royce Factory of the Future” in Sheffield. There the AMRC team develops technology-driven solutions for materials-forming, metal-working, and castings, helping UK manufacturing to remain competitive.

As you’d expect of such a technologically led organisation, AMRC has three ActiveWorks VR systems. The two portable ones (one truly portable, the other a tracked system in the back of a lorry!) allow them to evangelise about VR and their technology all over the world, while their HQ boasts a cluster driven, fully tracked, rear projected ActiveWall.
