Towards Mass Production for Precision Micro / Nano Devices
Tuesday, 5 February, 2019
"Our Research focuses on how to design, develop and manufacture small and precision components. We look to span the bridge between small-scale and large-scale production."
In part 3 of our 2019 researcher case studies we look at Dr Nan Zhang of the UCD School of Mechanical & Materials Engineering.
Many industries require precision components. Manufacturing these components can involve engineering materials and features at tiny scales, on the order of microns or even nanometers (billionths of metres).
Dr Nan Zhang at UCD School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering aims to help bring innovations in precision manufacturing from the lab-based prototypes to the large volume of manufacturing that industry needs. The research is building capacity in Ireland to enable the mass production of precision micro/nano devices.
