Automation of a post-production treatment to produce large surface area uniform heating
This innovative research project with industry delivers immediate practical solutions. It pays a £14,000 tax-free stipend and has reduced tuition fees for the successful candidate. Fees are just £2,195 for UK/EU students and £15,510 for non-UK/EU students, as 2D Heat will subsidise your studies by £2,000.
Uniform and efficient surface heating is a fundamental requirement in many markets from commercial food preparation to high tech applications in the CERN Large Hadron Collider. 2D Heat have developed an innovative heating technology which achieves excellent uniformity of surface heat by manually using an “ablation” treatment to selectively and systematically remove deposited material from its heating elements. This project seeks to establish new ways to automate this process using lasers to remove material in a rapid and controlled manner, which also reduces the cost of this treatment.
The project would appeal to a 2.1 graduate in engineering, with experience/interests in automation and manufacturing (preferably laser processing).
This project is under the supervision of Dr David Cheneler, Department of Engineering at Lancaster University in collaboration with 2D Heat Ltd. 2D Heat is an innovative research company commercialising “flat” heating elements for many applications. The unique lightweight heating elements deliver excellent energy efficiency compared to traditional coiled wire elements and are applied directly to flat or contoured rigid surfaces.
Start Date: September/October 2017
