Power ultrasound for micro/nanoscale processing of metals
Industry Driven Research
nquiringminds, along with 7 other organisations from Industry and academia, is participating in exploitation and dissemination of the UltraMAT project. The objective of the UltraMAT project is to develop a novel generic technology for materials processing of fluid and semi fluid phases that are widespread in manufacturing.
Smart IoT for Manufacturing
nquiringminds are innovating in the use of remote IoT sensors and control systems to streamline industrial processes around micro and nano particle manufacture. The techniques and technology developed in UltraMAT are applicable to a broad range of manufacturing processes e.g. in the welding and adhesive joining of components, the manufacture of bulk composite components, in traditional and PM (HIP). The underlying technology for UltraMAT is power ultrasound, with force fields to control movement and size creation of uniform nano structures.
UltraMAT is a three year project supported by Innovate UK (Project Ref. 102802) which commenced in March 2017.
