ATKINS is a £2.9-million collaborative research and development projects funded by the UK governmental and a consortium of leading industrial partners. The aim of ATKINS is to fundamentally migrate the design, manufacturing and distribution of goods and components away from the high energy-intensive methodologies that we use today to a more sustainable method of production, service and distribution to the consumer. This low-carbon design, manufacturing and service philosophy will be enabled by the unique characteristics of Rapid Manufacturing (RM).
Waste minimisation during production: ensuring optimised and repeatable RM production systems can substantially reduce or eliminate waste materials;
Process efficiency gains: using RM processes to replace inefficient and wasteful conventional manufacturing processes
Reducing transportation: Using digital supply chains and RM technologies to significantly reduce logistical requirements on oil field housing by shortening the supply chain and minimising the need for waste material disposal or recycling;
Product design for whole life cycle impact: Exploiting RM design freedoms to minimise weight for significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions over the whole product life cycle
Product design for optimised performance: manufacturing truly optimised products that are more efficient in their application compared to traditional parts constrained by Design for Manufacture.
We were really pleased with the BeanPrint's business cards sent for Akins Manufacturing from Beanprint.com which came with free delivery.
