1. COVID-19 support
CPE are working to do all that we can to support the fight against COVID-19. Please get in touch if we can lend our skills and University facilities to projects for e.g. ventilators, face shields or patient testing:
- Manufacturing of parts:
- 3D CAD design
- Laser processing such as cutting, engraving
- Prototyping: 3D printers, CNC
- Body temperature detection with thermal imaging
- Optical modelling e.g. for UVC LED sources for rapid sanitising
2. CPE Collaborations with Welsh Businesses
The CPE team are continuing to work smoothly, and collaborative projects with companies are still progressing, as we all adjust to the current situation. All meetings are still taking place as planned thanks to modern technology, allowing us to keep working and communicating together, now that many of us are working remotely.
Our four University campuses are closed currently to non-essential activity so we have no lab access during this lockdown period (only for COVID-19 support). However we are still able to work remotely on projects that involve, in part or in full, feasilibity studies, technology reviews, computer modelling and simulation. Moreover, we are using this time to push forward with technical discussions, project scoping and getting all relevant paperwork signed off so that we are ready to hit the ground running once restrictions are lifted.
If you are a business that is looking develop or improve your products or processes, please get in touch. We are a team of engineering minds and are here to support Welsh companies through fully funded collaborations.
