OMIC R&D has built a powerhouse consortium of industry and academic leaders committed to combining their knowledge and experience to advance manufacturing to the next stage. The key to this dynamic effort is invested collaboration. Through collaboration, innovation is born, resulting in applied solutions for manufacturers to make products better, faster, greener, and less expensive. OMIC R&D’s capabilities can benefit companies that may not have the time, focus, or bandwidth to address research issues themselves. OMIC R&D is modeled after the Advanced Manufacturing Research Center established with Boeing at Sheffield University in England. AMRC was founded to help manufacturers of any size become more competitive by introducing advanced techniques, technologies, and processes, and to carry out world-leading research into advanced machining, manufacturing, and materials that are of practical use to industry.
