Overview

The Monash Centre for Additive Manufacturing (MCAM) is a state-of-the-art facility consisting of the latest technology for manufacturing specialised and complex components from a wide range of metal powders (Ti, Ni, Al alloys and steel).

MCAM takes their most recent discoveries in alloy and metallurgical science and find ways to apply them in real world applications – working with partners who need stronger, lighter, more cost effective components.

We work with partners to invent bespoke solutions to unique manufacturing challenges. Using our network with the research centres situated in the Clayton precinct and our broader Australian and international network, we are able to draw on a number of different cutting edge capabilities and expertise and apply them in novel and innovative ways to provide new opportunities for manufacturers.

Case studies provide an indication as to the types of outcomes that can be achieved through connecting industry and research. Read the ‘Pioneering the next generation of heat exchangers’ case study to discover how MCAM connected with Conflux Technology.
