Sheffield-based Additive Automations is automating the post-processing of additive manufacturing. Currently the process is done manually, but it’s laborious, error-prone and toxic.
Programming robots and other industrial equipment for manufacturing is traditionally a hard task that requires experienced technicians and automation engineers. At Additive Automations we’re building software applications that move a significant part of the design, programming, debugging and testing process to a virtual 3D environment. Our applications are built on top of the open-source robotics stack, ROS.
This is a unique opportunity to be part of a greenfield development effort that will change the way companies build and produce products. We’ve just received a significant amount of funding and will be hiring multiple engineers in the coming months, to add to our current team of 6.
