We have featured on the Facebook page of Nottingham Trent University’s Advanced Textiles Research Group. Here’s our own Matt Baseley with some precision dispensing equipment we have helped them with in their lab, including a dispensing robot and a volumetric dispensing pump.
The focus of the Advanced Textiles Research Group is on electronic textiles with the aim of developing a truly wearable computer. Areas of work include embedded electronics in yarns/fibres; electronically heated gloves for skiers, motorcyclists and for the treatment of Raynaud’s phenomenon; flexible fabric antennas for megahertz frequency communications; knitted structures for ECG measurement; and textile switches for clothing and automotive applications.
It’s exciting, leading edge stuff – we are both fascinated and delighted to be involved.
