Towards rapid and versatile biosensor manufacturing using 3D printing technology
Blair, Ewen (Co-investigator) Zeng, Quanren (Principal Investigator) Tian, Yankang (Co-investigator) Taladriz Sender, Andrea (Co-investigator)
Manufacturing biosensors remains a challenge, as the vast majority are lab-based systems not suitable for mass manufacture. However, Laser Metal Deposition (LMD) is a new and flexible method for 3D-printing additive manufacturing, well positioned to meet this task. We aim to arrive at an optimal method of employing LMD to fabricate biosensors

Numerical modelling of laser metal deposition (LMD) process for melt pool temperatu re distribution and deposited tracks’ geometry prediction(Route-to-Impact project)
Zeng, Quanren (CoPI) Qin, Yi (Principal Investigator) Tian, Yankang (Co-investigator) Reimer, Andreas (Administrator) Fitzpatrick, Stephen (Administrator)
The project was focused on the development and validation of an integrated approach for the modelling of  Laser Metal Deposition (LMD) for melt pool temperature distribution and deposited tracks’ geometry prediction for the fabrication of metal components by this additive manufacturing process. 

The project was funded by the "Route to Impact" call from the Advanced Forming Research Centre, a High Value Manufacturing Catapult Centre which is funded and managed by Innovate UK.
