ARC Training Centre in Alloy Innovation for Mining Efficiency (AIME) (ARC Training Centre administered by Deakin University) (2017–2022)
The Centre will transfrom materials innovation in the mining equipment sector and graduate innovators ready to
take Australian manufacturers into dominance in this multi-billion dollar market. The goal is to create world¿s best
performance in highly customized long-life, wear resistant components. These innovations will enable much
needed efficiencies following the end of the mining super-cycle. The Centre will pioneer a new paradigm for rapid
development of customized alloys that excel in severe mining conditions using 3D printing, novel characterization
and a unique training environment networked into manufacturers, systems suppliers, miners, consultancies,
industry bodies, state government and the METS Ignited Growth Centre.
