Many emerging sectors and next generation products will demand large scale ultra precision (nanometre level tolerance) complex components. Such products include: next generation displays, plastic electronic devices, low cost photovoltaic cells, energy management and energy harvesting devices and logistics, defence and security technologies.
Their product performance is set to advance and the innovative manufacturing based on ultra precision technologies for these products defines the scope for the EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Ultra Precision.
About the Centre
Through close interaction with UK precision manufacturing supply chains, UK emerging product developers and leading international organisations, the Centre has a vision to be a world leading research Centre for innovation in next generation ultra precision production systems and products, with global outreach.
In conjunction with the EPSRC funded Centre for Doctoral Training in Ultra Precision at the University of Cambridge our aim is to develop a world leading training and research environment that delivers highly skilled ultra precision engineers to industry.
ABOUT THE CENTRE
The EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Ultra Precision undertakes early stage production research to establish new processing technologies demanded for effective production of emerging products, with global outreach.
