The MIAMI project is focused on improving the productivity of additive manufacturing (AM) via improved monitoring and control to achieve 'right first time' manufacturing and novel approaches to improving the speed of AM.

MIAMI brings in new academic investigators at Sheffield to the MAPP Hub and builds links with new commercial and academic partners including the Future Metrology Hub at Huddersfield.

MIAMI will accelerate the development and translation of new technologies including thermal metrology systems being developed by Dr Jon Willmott, an EPSRC Manufacturing Fellow in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, and the Diode Area Melting (DAM) system being developed by Dr Kamran Mumtaz in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Dr Kris Groom from Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering.
