MAPP Initiative

Introduction – Bridging the gaps in current knowledge

Recent advances in powder based materials and processes are amongst the most exciting we have ever witnessed in manufacturing and such technologies are at the forefront of a new industrial revolution. Yet challenges remain to realising their full potential: problems associated with emerging manufacturing processes and new materials often only become evident as we move from the lab scale to pre-production. The underpinning fundamental material science research is very often conducted separately to the manufacturing process research. MAPP will bridge this gap and address this.

 

MAPP is a new £20m Future Manufacturing Hub in Manufacture using Advanced Powder Process funded by the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC). MAPP’s vision is to deliver on the promise of powder-based manufacturing processes to provide low energy, low cost and low waste high value manufacturing routes and products to secure UK manufacturing productivity and growth.

MPP/PSI has been selected as one of the 17 industrial partners in this programme.  For further reading see link

Overview of MAPP research programme

MAPP will bridge this gap and address this challenge with a focused and collaborative research agenda on emerging powder based manufacturing technologies including: Spark Plasma Sintering, Freeze Casting, Inkjet Printing, Spray Forming, and Laser, Electron Beam and Indirect Additive Manufacturing. Our research covers a wide range of Engineering Materials where powder processing has the clear potential to drive disruptive growth – including advanced ceramics, polymers, alloys and materials for energy storage – but where common problems must be addressed. The problems include: the dynamic nature of the conditions these processes impose during manufacture makes their control challenging; the influence of process conditions on the particulate feed-stocks and their morphology is not understood; the variability of behaviours that emerge as a result of the interplay between dynamic process conditions and highly active powders.
