Made in Britain: Manufacturing challenges of advanced materials
21st June 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Global manufacturing is going through a period of rapid change. New technologies are emerging which have the potential to transform the way we make and sell products. But first we have to work out how to make them; many advanced materials in particular have yet to transition successfully from research laboratory to industrial scale production. Come and meet pioneers in this field on 21 June:
Aphrodite Tomou, Goodfellow
“The future of Joining Advanced Materials”
Technical support specialist Aphrodite's talk will focus on Goodfellow's proprietary soldering alloys which enable the joining of various carbon materials, including carbon fibres or carbon nanotube fibres. They can be used at lowe temperatures and lead to stable connections, thus overcoming bonding and laminating challenges inherent in the use of advanced materials.
Nicholas Jose, Dpt of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, University of Cambridge
"Bringing novelties to reality: scalable R&D and manufacturing techniques for nanomaterial technologies."
PhD Candidate Nicolas pursues research on the feasibility and scalability of nanomaterial applications.
