Case Studies

Due to the sensitive nature of the work we do many of our projects are subject to Non Disclosue Agreements preventing us from showing some of the things we do.

We can show you the following case studies;

Precision Embossing Mechanism

The requirement was to design and manufacture a precision embossing mechanism for the MEMS industry to interface with an existing wafer bonding platform. This patented design combines constrained flexural movement with precision drives to provide high positional accuracy and low error motion.

Porous Ceramic Hydrostatic Bearings

Porous Ceramic Hydrostatic Bearing Technology has been developed at Cranfield Precision in conjunction with Cranfield University. A collaborative project saw the design and manufacture of a set of ultra precision spindle bearings for a porous ceramic hydrostatic spindle. The project was for Lawrence Livermore National laboratory's Precision Optical Grinder And Lathe (POGAL) machine concept project.
