Romar Engineering Awarded $5.8m MMI Grant to Boost Aerospace Manufacturing for the Australian Market
Romar Engineering’s expanding capability in advanced manufacturing for the aerospace sector has been recognised with a $5.8 million MMI grant to grow its Australian-designed fluid and motion control solutions.
Romar Engineering’s winning grant is the largest of four allocated to manufacturers working in the aerospace sector under round one of the Integration and Translation streams of the Modern Manufacturing Initiative (MMI), a $1.3 billion Federal Government initiative designed to position Australia as a globally recognised, high-quality and sustainable manufacturing nation. The four companies – Romar Engineering (NSW), EffusionTech (Vic), Titomic (Vic) and Q-CTRL (NSW) will share in nearly $14 million in funding.
Expanding our advanced manufacturing team
Romar Engineering plans on leveraging a more diverse metal AM offering in the Australian market with GE Additive and Romar’s custom sealing solutions. Its design-centric, qualification-focused approach provides Australia with the fluid control, motion control, and metal AM solutions to hit orbit.
Romar Engineering will use its $5.8 million towards 18 new positions in the company’s advanced manufacturing department. It is currently preparing to install a new GE Additive Metal AM machine, adding to its existing DMG Mori Lasertec 65 3D 5-axis synchronous laser deposition, welding and milling machine.
The Lasertec is still the only one of its kind in Australia and one of only three in commercial settings globally. Romar has also invested extensively in the most advanced design and build preparation software to enable it to extract maximum value from its investments in advanced manufacturing technology.
