Fifth Annual HiPerNano Conference and Exhibition - solving engineering challenges with nanotechnology

Nanotechnology Knowledge Transfer Network (NanoKTN) : 15 March, 2013  (Company News)
The Nanotechnology Knowledge Transfer Network (NanoKTN) announces details of its fifth annual HiPerNano conference and exhibition, taking place on 17 April 2013 in Birmingham, sponsored by The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). Early-bird rates are available until Friday 22 March 2013.

HiPerNano (High Performance Nanoengineering) 2013 is an opportunity for technology users to meet technology companies and specialists and find out the latest developments. The conference will highlight new developments in the application of nanotechnologies to new product design and the improvement, manufacture and maintenance relevant to all the high value manufacturing (HVM) and performance engineering sectors including aerospace, automotive, motorsport, offshore, defence and energy generation.

HiPerNano 2013 features Ian Taylor, Technology Manager - Lubrication Science at Shell Research Ltd as the keynote speaker. The one day conference and exhibition will feature three parallel streams on Nanomaterials (Graphene & Nanocomposites), Surface Engineering (Protective & Functional Surfaces) and High Value Manufacturing (Advances in Nano/Micro Manufacture & Novel Manufacturing Concepts).

The technology presentations during the streams will be delivered by key industrial and academic professionals, including

  • Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery
  • Tata Steel
  • Thomas Swan
  • GnoSys
  • Brunel University
  • Indestructible Paint
  • Jost Institute of Tribotechnology at the University of Central Lancashire
  • Cranfield University
  • The Centre for Polymer Micro and Nano Technology at the University of Bradford
  • Materials Solutions
  • Miba Coating Group/Teer Coatings.

Dr Martin Kemp, Theme Manager at the NanoKTN comments, “Technology innovation such as nanotechnology can give high value manufacturing industries a competitive edge for new products which were not previously achievable, or improved products with enhanced performance, and increased lifetime and ease of maintenance. HiPerNano 2013 will be a showcase of new and exciting developments, and this year we have a new theme on novel manufacturing processes. HiPerNano 2013 is a unique opportunity to meet the technology developers, form partnerships for collaborative research funding, and find commercial products on the market. We will be discussing new developments such as graphene, which promise new approaches to materials development and use, and innovative manufacturing techniques such as lasers for surface engineering and joining, and additive layer manufacturing techniques for net shape forming of components in polymers, ceramics and metallics.”

Kemp continues, “Last year’s conference attracted over 100 delegates with more than 80% from industry and we’re expecting similar figures this year. HiPerNano 2013 will provide delegates with the unique opportunity to hear new ideas, interact and network with peers, and meet technology providers and academia working in the high performance engineering space.”
