Contract Additive Manufacturing research & development.
New techniques and materials require new approaches and processes. We re-imagine and re-engineer hardware and processes to develop tailored industrial solutions that can be integrated into your manufacturing environments to make Additive Manufacturing work for you.
Our expertise and equipment means that we can help with your material jetting needs, from the development and optimisation of print strategies to the development of systems tailored to specific applications. Our multi-material hardware development means that we can print multiple materials simultaneously, and our reactive inkjet printing allows us to print “impossible materials,” such as those with very high molecular weights.
Metal & Polymer Powder Bed
Our expertise with metal and polymer powder bed printing means that we can undertake parameter optimisation for the development of new materials, optimise support structures and build strategies, test method development, and analyse and characterise defects.
Our experience with vat photopolymerisation allows us to undertake parameter optimisation for the development of new materials, modify hardware – including energy sources – to suit particular projects, and develop systems tailored to specific applications.
Our expert engineers can tailor our binder jetting expertise to any project. We can develop systems and processes for specific applications such as pharmaceutical printing, develop and optimise printheads to improve performance, and optimise print strategies to improve part quality.

Working in partnership
Our clients are at the heart of every project. That’s why we’re happy to accommodate any specific needs you might have, including intellectual property ownership and non-disclosure agreements.
Clients retain ownership of intellectual property
We understand how important your IP is to our customers. Unlike many research bodies, we ensure that you get to keep full ownership of any foreground IP developed through our research.
Strict non-disclosure agreements
We work with global companies on highly strategic and confidential projects. We will never publish or share any research created through client projects without permission.
