Monash Centre for Additive Manufacturing (MCAM)
The Monash Centre for Additive Manufacturing takes fundamental research from a broad range of disciplines and applies them to manufacturing challenges. These disciplines include material science, alloy design and processing, surface engineering, corrosion and hybrid materials. MCAM works with its partners to invent bespoke solutions to unique manufacturing challenges. Using networks within research centres in the Clayton precinct and beyond, MCAM draws on a number of different cutting-edge capabilities and expertise and applies them in novel and innovative ways to provide new opportunities for manufacturers.
Facilities: MCAM has 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); Selective laser melting machine (EOS), which is capable of producing high precision and complex, structured parts; Largest selective laser melting machine (Concept Laser) in the southern hemisphere, pushing the boundaries of additive manufacturing; Direct laser deposition machine (Trumpf), which is capable of rapid materials development and large-scale part manufacture and repair; and, Hot Isostatic Press (Avure) with unique high temperature and pressure combinations.
