Design & Production Services

We have a substantial investment in equipment Design and Production systems and these are available for use by collaborators and commercial customers.

Our services include engineering testing, forensic analysis and reporting, and access to the expertise of our academic staff. For many of our areas we are among the leading groups in the UK, and in some cases we offer unique capabilities and expertise to researchers and industry.


Our staff have many years of experience in the operation of this type of equipment and in undertaking projects of many kinds.

In particular, we have expertise in operating large Electrical Discharge (EDM) systems which use a metallic electrode to cut a programmed contour in a workpiece.

We can also offer Rapid Prototyping Services.
