Developing BASELINE, Rapid Machine Tool Verification at the Nuclear AMRC

Over the past 12 months, INSPHERE have been working with the Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre at their world-class facilities in Rotherham to develop BASELINE, a new system that can verify large machine tools in less than one hour.

Industry and Innovation at the Nuclear AMRC

The Nuclear AMRC is part of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, an alliance of seven leading manufacturing research centres backed by Innovate UK. It is a centre that successfully combines academic innovation with industry expertise to help manufacturers improve capabilities and performance along the supply chain. 

The centre’s Soraluce FX12000 horizontal machining platform, which is capable of working on components up to 12 metres, is the largest of its kind within the UK available for collaborative R&D. INSPHERE have put the Soraluce machine through its paces and conducted a series of large-scale trials to test the BASELINE system and also benchmark its technology against current market offerings.

BASELINE Launch Event at the Nuclear AMRC

On March 21st, INSPHERE will be returning to the Nuclear AMRC to launch the BASELINE system. The event will include technical presentations from INSPHERE, Nuclear AMRC, and equipment provider Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence. There will also be shop floor demonstrations of the BASELINE technology. The event is free to attend but spaces are limited.
