Micro Surface Structuring
The EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Ultra Precision is holding this one day meeting at The OpTIC Centre, St Asaph, North Wales on Wednesday 19th November 2014.
Micro surface structuring is used in a variety of processes for producing optical films, holographic images, medical devices and micro-fluidics to name but a few. The critical features of the technique are extremely small scale, repeatable features over an area of a product or component, giving the item unique properties that are not possible to achieve without ultra precise machining and/or replication techniques.
This event will bring together some of the UK’s leading exponents in this field to discuss the methods of production and some of the industries that are starting to see applications for this technology. The event is aimed at updating and connecting UK business and academia in these fields and to show some of the world-class technologies and processes that are being developed here in the UK.
Optional laboratory tours of UPS2 will be available on the day.*
