CPI to accelerate commercialisation of lightweight nanomaterials
CPI is contributing its state-of-the-art facilities and capabilities to a Horizon 2020 project focused on creating an open-innovation test bed for the development and production of lightweight embedded electronics.
Touch in flexible displays: which technologies will prevail?
The technologies seeking to unseat ITO (Indium Tin Oxide) are by now themselves old, at least in the sense that they have been around for a decade and a half. They seem to have been forever in the waiting mode, anticipating the arrival of their major breakthrough. A key differentiator has long been higher flexibility and foldability over ITO. The question now is how will different technology options fare given that the paradigm shift towards flexible displays is finally upon us despite the recent product launch delays?
Next generation smart vest asthma treatment for children
CPI is working alongside ItoM Medical BV and Blumorpho to support the development of a wearable medical device focused upon improving treatment for children with uncontrolled asthma. The device, a next generation smart vest prototype, will benefit from CPI's expertise in the printable electronics sector.
IDTechEx Printed Electronics Europe 2019 Award Winners
At the 15th IDTechEx Printed Electronics Europe conference and exhibition in Berlin on April 10-11, four companies were honoured for their great achievements in developing and commercialising printed electronics technologies.
BatterySense Project works on development of next generation batteries
CPI is part of a project focused on next generation battery and sensor work. Operating alongside partners on the BatterySense programme, CPI is supporting work to reduce the size of existing wireless sensing form factors by exploiting additive manufacture. This allows for the intimate integration of batteries into the substrates of ultrathin label-like sensors fabricated by roll-to-roll processes.
The Centre for Process Innovation (CPI)
Since its launch, CPI has been in a unique position to work with companies and their products, both in the development, testing and optimisation of product design and in the development of manufacturing processes that can be proven in yield at relevant industrial volumes.
Nanofacturing project accelerates development of innovative medicines
The Nanofacturing consortium has worked on a pan-European nanopharmaceutical project to develop new manufacturing methods and improve supply chain co-ordination to advance treatments for rare cancers, autoimmune diseases and viral infections.
CPI collaborates on smart filter project
The Centre for Process Innovation has collaborated on a project to advance the development of a low-cost, self-cleaning coating technology for industrial filter membranes. The Smart Filter project used graphene and its derivatives to create a coated filter membrane that offers increased resistance to fouling for industrial waste water treatment.
Multi-million Pound centre to develop medical technologies using light
The Centre for Process Innovation has held a topping out ceremony to mark the completion of construction work on a new, state-of-the-art facility that will develop next generation light-based healthcare treatments.
CPI supporting LiNaMan Project to develop next generation EV batteries
Working alongside LiNa Energy and Lancaster University, CPI is supporting the development of a robust, low-cost and high performance energy storage battery to replace existing lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries.
CPI collaborates on BodySense Project
The Centre for Process Innovation is part of a collaboration aiming to improve the performance of smart devices used to capture real-time health and lifestyle data. Working with a number of partners on the BodySense project, CPI is supporting the development of next generation multi-functional sensing devices.
CPI helps running entrepreneur take big step forward
CPI worked with Craig Downs on mymo, a wearable sock which uses artificial intelligence to gauge an athlete's gait.
