Gordon delivers dynamic future with new materials for new industries

The Gordon’s new Advanced Manufacturing and Composite Centre (AMACC) will deliver Australia’s first course dedicated to working with the emerging and revolutionary industry of composite manufacturing – 22312VIC Course in the use of carbon fibre in composite manufacturing.

Once a space dedicated to tool making, AMACC has been completely overhauled and repurposed to meet the demands of using carbon fibre, processes and technologies required to learn about these dynamic new materials and their ability to advance engineering needs for future applications.

Makers skills

The course will cover the basic chemistry involved in the
development of polymer matrices as well as workplace
health and safety effects of working with carbon fibre
composites and waste disposal issues and will also provide
an understanding of variables contributing to quality control
during the manufacture of products using carbon fibre.

AMACC gives students the opportunity to gain skills and
knowledge focused on the different processes used for the
manufacture of products using carbon fibres, including
moulding processes using vacuum and pressure assisted
techniques for the manufacture of composite components.
This initiative underpins the emerging industry of composite
manufacturing and its opportunities by skilling a new
workforce in a new industry using new materials.
