New Materials: Towards Sustainable Technologies


How can print processes be used in real world situations to address contemporary issues? The research in this field addresses the crossover between new print technologies and how they can be used in industry, manufacture, life-style and environmental sustainability.

For example, can printing technology be utilised to solve diverse issues such as the creation of customised wheelchairs that fit the user, or creating bespoke packaging for the transportation of fragile oil paintings?

We are particularly developing our knowledge base from our work into 3D printed ceramics and glass, manufacturing technologies and data driven methods for 3D digital fabrication.
