Plans approved for new centre of excellence at Sheffield Business Park
A local authority has approved plans for the development of a centre of excellence for advanced manufacturing that will incorporate some of the latest and most advanced tehnologies, a news report in the local business media can reveal.
Sheffield City Council approved plans for Factory 2050, a £43 million stunning circular building that will combine a range of technologies, including advanced robotics, flexible automation, unmanned workspace, off-line printing in virtual environments linked to plug-and-play robotics, 3D printing from flexible automated systems, man-machine interfaces, and new programming and training tools.
The state of the art development will be built by the University of Sheffield, consolidating the success of their investment in the original Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre on the Advanced Manufacturing Park at Catcliffe. Since the first University building opened there in 2004, four further new buildings and two extensions have been added to provide a current total of around 30,000 sq. m of accommodation.
Given the specific nature of the activity set to be carried out on the site’s premises, it would certainly require the implementation of a very solid and reliable access control solution.
