Ross Trepleton

The Manufacturing Technology Centre Ltd


Dr Ross Trepleton is a Chief Engineer at the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC), part of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult. Ross leads the Component Manufacturing Technology group, which includes three research themes namely Net Shape and AM, Fusion Welding, and Non-Conventional Machining. Ross has a key role within the National Centre for Additive Manufacturing, delivering industrial projects for aerospace, defence, power generation and space sectors.

The purpose of the DRAMA project is to develop and demonstrate national assets to enable the adoption of additive manufacturing by the UK aerospace supply chain. The project will establish an additive manufacturing ‘learning factory’ – a digitally enabled environment where supply chain companies can learn about the capability of AM processes, equipment, facilities and software. The project team will build and share knowledge that will support the supply chain.

This presentation will talk about the ambition of the DRAMA project and its alignment with the Additive Manufacturing UK National Strategy and the outcomes of our industrial consultation with the UK aerospace sector. It will also describe ways for component manufacturers and technology providers to engage with the project.
