Accelerated Cladding and Integrated Machining (ACCLAIM)
ACCLAIM was aimed at developing a high rate affordable manufacturing process for large metallic structures, in collaboration with Delcam Plc, and including the MTC, Kennametal Stellite UK Ltd, BOC Group Ltd, Hybrid Manufacturing Technology Ltd, Cortus Ltd, Short Brothers Plc, BAE Systems Ltd and Magna Parva Ltd. ACCLAIM was funded through Innovate UK.
Statistical methods for Computed Tomography validation of complex structures in Additive Layer Manufacturing (Inside-Out)
The aim of Inside-Out was to explore methods by which this quality assurance process may be carried out more rapidly. The investigation will be carried out by a close collaboration between engineers and statisticians at Warwick using statistical techniques including random fields, false discovery rate methods, and ideas from stochastic geometry. The project was a collaboration between WMG, Department of Statistics, EOS Electro Optic Systems, Renishaw plc and Nikon Metrology. Inside-Out was funded by the EPSRC.
PVOH Composite Active Packaging (PCAP)
PCAP aimed to deliver step-change developments in material composition and manufacturing capability of complex biodegradable and water soluble plastic components to enable supply chain transformation in terms of resource efficiency and environmental impact. PCAP was a collaboration between WMG and a number of UK SMEs and end users. PCAP was funded through Innovate UK.
Complex Structured Formulations for Tailored Additive Release and Product Enhancement (DIRECT)
DIRECT aimed to deliver step-change developments in the formulation and manufacturing capability of complex biodegradable and water soluble plastic components. This break-through will deliver novel active-self-packaging materials with controlled and tailored release for the laundry goods sector (enhanced effectiveness single dose products), and in-container controlled release of additives for paint / coatings sector (enhanced shelf-life products). DIRECT was a collaboration between WMG and a number of UK SMEs and end users. DIRECT was funded through Innovate UK.
ALM of Nickel-Based Superalloy Metal Matrix Composites (AL-MMC)
AL-MMC aimed to investigate the Powder Bed Fusion of high aluminium and titanium content Nickle based alloys Metal Matrix Composites for improved high temparature performance. AL-MMC was funded through an EPSRC iCASE award in collaboration with i2m Ltd (recently merged with Progressive Technology).
Engaging Young People with Assistive Technologies (E-ASSIST)
E-ASSIST aimed, through use of free CAD and 3D Printing technologies, enable students with learning difficulties and disabilities to be able to tailor the design of tools and accessories to their own requirements and to investigate how they can share their designs and expertise with the wider community, with the aim of raising their aspirations and increase their entry into STEM subject areas. The project was funded through the STEM project Innovation Programme.
Airway Disease Predicting Outcomes through Patient Specific Computational Modelling (AirPROM)
AirPROM aimed to develop models of airways to assess how air flows through the lungs and why this flow becomes obstructed in people with asthma and COPD. This will enable development and testing of new individually tailored therapies, through linking the characteristics of different airways to a particular treatment. AirPROM was funded by the EU through the Framework 7 programme.
