Valve Integration through Additive Layer-manufacturing (VITAL)

Project: Central government, health and local authorities

Description

A consortium including Moog Controls Ltd, Renishaw Plc and the University of Bath has been funded to investigate new integrated motion control devices. The consortium are conducting research and development in the fields of selective laser melting, piezoelectric actuation and non-contact absolute digital position sensing. The technical aims of this work are to radically change the shape, architecture and performance of motion control devices for aerospace and industrial markets.. The non-technical aims of this work are to retain high quality engineering jobs in the UK, reduce material waste, and reduce weight of aerospace components.
