Whether it’s developments in the relatively new, and increasingly accessible, field of additive manufacturing or progress in the well-established world of traditional print, this area is alive with innovation that impacts a wide range of industries.
Rapidly evolving 3D printing technology is transforming manufacturing. Research into materials such as polymers, ceramics and metals has led to the increasing use of 3D and 4D printed parts in a large range of applications across medicine, orthopaedics, electronics, transport and countless other industries.
Traditional print is also experiencing ongoing progress. Innovation in inks and pigments, such as the creation of flexible, conductive formulas that can be harnessed for wearable electronics, is constant. Furthermore, substrate materials are subject to continual developments to meet new challenges and demands in printing.
Working with leading, international names in printing, as well as SMEs, universities and research institutions, the team combines real-time, industry insights and academic experience to develop protective IP strategies that perform in this highly competitive field.
