Discovery and Research Tools
Many companies face important decisions about how best to access cleanroom and laboratory facilities, equipment and knowledge. With over 30 years of discovery and research experience and world-class facilities, we provide access to the high-tech facilities, tools and know-how that brings solutions to market.
World-class µ-fab facility
With over 30 years of microfabrication experience, TTP’s world-class µ-fab facility provides unique silicon, glass and polymer R&D and production solutions to various industrial sectors.
Microfabrication was first developed to enable the microprocessor technology. Now, it’s revolutionising everything from telecommunications to life sciences. It has enabled previously unimaginable levels of size and cost reduction, as well as game-changing regimes for physical, fluidic and bio-chemical properties.
Comprehensive range of fabrication equipment
TTP’s µ-fab facility has a comprehensive range of fabrication, packaging and characterisation equipment for the development of micron-scaled products.
Access and links to exceptional facilities
With over 240 scientists and business experts collaborating over 30 years, the diversity and size of TTP’s µ-fab team creates a unique environment to apply the benefits that advanced microfabrication offers. TTP’s links with the Cambridge University cleanroom and top European MEMS foundries further enhance offerings and routes to manufacture.
Experience in ground-breaking microfabrication devices
TTP’s ground-breaking microfabrication devices include a compact and fast microfluidic cell sorter for therapeutic applications, PCR for rapid DNA amplification, tiny all-optical sensors for medical and other non-EM applications, accurate spray nozzles, polymer light waveguides and ultrasound imaging micro-chips.
Revolutionising how products are conceived, optimised and produced
Industrial and cell therapy manufacturing demands the increasingly sophisticated integration of innovative technologies in both products and processes.
We offer clients extensive experience in all aspects of the value chain in advanced manufacturing, from harnessing micro-scale manufacturing techniques to devising solutions for digital material deposition of powders and complex rheology fluids.
Underpinning our capabilities in advanced manufacturing is deep expertise in the various technologies and innovations driving the Industry 4.0 revolution: sensing, machine learning and artificial intelligence, wireless communications and big data.
Advanced Material Deposition
Combining modelling and engineering expertise to create functional materials and surfaces
Whether it is to achieve greater flexibility and material transfer efficiency in manufacturing, or to realise new business models driven by mass customisation, material deposition is becoming increasingly important in a wide range of industries.
TTP has a long history in inkjet technology development. Our expertise includes computational fluid dynamics (CFD), device fabrication and engineering, characterisation and industrialisation.
We exploit the physics of fluids and droplet generation to solve challenges in material deposition, developing devices for applications in paint delivery, adhesive deposition as well as powder production.
