Advanced Manufacturing

About the Group

This group focuses on applied research related to the design and manufacture of products with high added value using disciplines such as competitive intelligence, circular economy, biomanufacturing, additive manufacturing, precision engineering and laser-based microprocessing. The complete life cycle of the product is studied through competitive intelligence, circular economy, ecodesign and green manufacturing concepts. Some of the advanced manufacturing processes of interest to this group include: 3D printing of tissue engineering scaffolds, electrospinning of nanofibers, laser microcutting and microwelding, soft lithography for microfluidics, microinjection molding, micromilling, incremental sheet forming and metrology.
