This Advanced Manufacturing Technology TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) profiles advancements in robots, 3D printing, welding technology and laser technology. Innovations profiled in this TOE include 3D printing of lightweight materials for construction and automotive applications for the printing of complex, lightweight structures with high load-bearing capability. In addition, innovations in warehouse robots that can identify 3D structures and perform material handling tasks, welding technique for high temperature resistant materials, fibre laser technology that offers efficient throughput and self-configuring soft robots for challenging applications are other focus areas of the TOE.

The Advanced Manufacturing Technology TOE covers global innovations and developments related to manufacturing and industrial automation on a weekly basis. Innovations are focused toward improving product traceability, energy efficiency and reducing environmental footprints, integrating product design and manufacturing aspects for reducing time-to-market. Research focus areas include rapid prototyping (additive manufacturing), lightweight (multimaterial joining, plastics and metals manufacturing, carbon fiber-based composite manufacturing), smart robotics (agile robots, consumer robots, swarm robotics, cobots), monitoring and control (wireless control networks, human machine interface), and simulation and modeling (design and simulation software).

The Advanced Manufacturing and Automation (AMA) Cluster covers technologies that enable clean, lean and flexible manufacturing and industrial automation. Technologies such as three-dimensional (3D) and four-dimensional (4D) printing, wireless sensors and networks, information and communication technology, multimaterial joining, composites manufacturing, digital manufacturing, micro- and nano-manufacturing, lasers, advanced software, and printing techniques, are covered as part of this cluster. The technologies covered here impact a wide range of industries, such as the impact semiconductor, automotive and transportation, aerospace and defence, industrial, healthcare, logistics, and electronics industries.
