Digital fabrication routes such as inkjet printing are becoming increasing attractive for a wide range of applications. Controlled and precise placement of precious materials has a significant impact on a wide range of areas from electronics and communication to medicine
The Digital Fabrication Centre hosts a wide range of active application focused research and development projects involving collaborators from across world including:
- Printing of passive and functional elements for flexible electronics.
- Identifying the influence of drop/substrate interactions on image quality and resolution.
- Functional textile printing.
- 3D rapid prototyping.
- Direct write of passive components on engineering structures.
Below are some of the areas in which printing has had a significant impact.
