Pilot Testing Facility

Our prototyping and pilot-scale facilities enable us to move products, processes, and technologies from the laboratory and development stage to pilot- and production-scale, providing real industrially relevant capability.

Our dedicated team of scientists and engineers has extensive expertise in production process requirements and translating these into clearly-defined scale-up projects.   

We have a wide range of pilot processes, following typical manufacturing flow from raw material characterisation to finished product analysis.

Our facility layout reflects the order of processes for ceramics manufacturing, from right to left.

Pilot-scale facilities for powder processing and prototyping are also available. 

Commercialisation of products and processes is what AMRICC is all about – our prototyping and pilot-scale facilities form the backbone of this.  And it's all available without needing to take your existing production offline.

The AMRICC Centre’s areas of development activity are many and varied: manufacturing process optimisation, additive manufacturing of ceramics, lower energy manufacturing technologies, and the use of alternative fuels on the pathway to Net Zero.

The AMRICC Centre can assist companies with virtually any stage of product development relating to ceramic materials, including: 

  • Early prototyping and development trials 
  • New manufacturing processes 
  • Manufacturing process improvement 
  • Small scale trials of ‘standard processes’ 
  • Production of trial batches
