The Integrated Manufacturing Group works with industrial and academic partners to bring together advanced technologies, such as robotics, augmented reality and large-volume metrology, to develop innovative, integrated systems that ensure complex structures are assembled perfectly, the first time and every time.

The Group’s new £43 million home is Factory 2050, the UK’s first state of the art factory entirely dedicated to conducting collaborative research into reconfigurable robotic, digitally assisted assembly and machining technologies. The facility is designed to address the rising need for high variation and mass customisation manufacturing throughout a diverse range of engineering sectors.
