The DMTL is interested in the way in which new and innovative technologies can be used in combination with innovative and advanced materials to create the components, devices and sensors of the future. The lab are specialists in developing new functional materials and processes for 3D printing/additive manufacturing along with the fabrication of precision micro-devices and structures for use in applications such as microfluidics, sensor & device technology and microelectronics. The versatility of additive manufacturing processes for instance, means that devices and parts that are almost impossible to fabricate with more traditional techniques, are easily and rapidly achievable. Such manufacturing technologies are a world away from the traditional image of manufacturing and represent the ultimate freedom to manufacture components of a complexity that has never been seen before.
