Home > Press > Project launched to help commercialise innovative nanomaterials

Abstract:
PilotManu, a project developed to reduce the barriers to market for highly innovative materials by piloting commercial applications, has officially launched. Funded by the European Commission, PilotManu is an FP7 programme consisting of 10 consortium partners across Europe including North East based, The Centre for Process Innovation (CPI).

Project launched to help commercialise innovative nanomaterials

Wilton, UK | Posted on January 23rd, 2014

Now in its tenth year of business, CPI is a part-private, part-publicly-funded organisation and part of the UK governments High Value Manufacturing Catapult. CPI helps to advance the development of novel products and processes for new, globally lucrative markets by providing open access facilities alongside teams of experienced multi-disciplinary scientists, engineers and business professionals. CPI reduces the risks associated with product and process development.

The PilotManu project will lower the barriers to market for the use of highly innovative advanced materials by scaling-up the current research-scale manufacturing facility into an industrial pilot line. This will increase the productivity of the technology enabling the supply of cost-effective and high quality materials, which will then be evaluated in several different commercial applications. The project will demonstrate the technological and economical viability of the pilot line by incorporating these advanced materials into coatings, abrasive tools and additive manufacturing applications.

Europe has identified within its innovation priorities the necessity to scale up the most promising material production technology to pilot manufacture in order to progress towards industrialisation of cutting edge materials in novel new processes. Manufacturing facilities for the production of advance and nanomaterials by high energy ball milling (HEBM) currently suffer from low productivity and high cost which is a key barrier for its application in the wider commercial market sectors.
CPI, as part of the PilotManu project, will perform an initial market analysis, an economic assessment of the pilot line that will be developed, and exploitation and dissemination of the project.

PilotManu therefore fits in the trans-sectorial activities of the Key Enabling Technologies (KET) that cut across many technology areas and in particular Nanotechnology Advanced Manufacturing Systems and Advanced Materials with a high potential to transform the European manufacturing sector.

About The Centre for Process Innovation
The Centre for Process Innovation is a UK-based technology innovation centre and part of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult. We use applied knowledge in science and engineering combined with state of the art development facilities to enable our clients to develop, prove, prototype and scale up the next generation of products and processes.

Our open innovation model enables clients to develop products and prove processes with minimal risk. We provide assets and expertise so our customers can demonstrate the process before investing substantial amounts of money in capital equipment and training. New products and processes can be shown to be feasible; on paper, in the lab and in the plant before being manufactured at an industrial scale.

By utilising our proven assets and expertise companies can take their products and processes to market faster. There is no down time in production as all of the process development is completed offsite and our technology transfer and engineering teams can help companies to transfer the product or process into full scale production at speed.
