Program description

Within the Micro-Nano Manufacturing theme, our research and development focuses on knowledge-based approaches to ultra-precision and micro-manufacturing. This consists of three key areas of research activity. The first is ‘top-down’ ultraprecision and micro- or nano-manufacturing through the integration of high-precision machines, smart tooling and micro-cutting mechanics and physics. Then we have ‘bottom-up’ ultraprecision as well as micro- and nano-manufacturing through molecular manufacturing with application to chemical engineering, pharmaceutical industry and 3D-printing fabrication. Finally, we look at multiscale multi-physics based modelling and analysis, which provides the essential foundation for both top-down and bottom-up ultraprecision and micro- or nano-manufacturing.

More specifically, the expertise in our theme covers around 20 areas. We are looking into the prospects for several innovative types of manufacturing: sustainable manufacturing and systems, e-manufacturing, global manufacturing, micro- and nano-manufacturing, smart tooling and manufacturing, CAD and digital manufacturing and energy-efficient manufacturing. We also examine individual processes within manufacturing on a smaller scale, conducting research into simulations, system and multiscale modelling, multi-physics based modelling and engineering design and analysis. We then look at other stages in the process: condition monitoring and control, ultraprecision machining and the design of precision and micro-machines. Investigations into metrology and robotics in manufacturing are an important part of our work, and have great relevance to the sector – as does our industrial-facing work on business process engineering and the management of supply chains, technology and innovation. Finally, we have special projects examining electrical discharge machining (EDM) processes and the manufacture of integrally bladed rotors.
