CPI gets £2.6m for IoT manufacturing centre

The Centre for Process Innovation (CPI) has received £2.6million from the European Regional Development Fund to establish and run the Emerging Electronics Manufacturing Centre.

According to CPI, this will provide equipment for the integration of electronic devices including a reel-to-reel RFID inlay production line and smart label converting line. The latter facility is expected to convert RFID inlays into smart labels at 60m/min. It says potential products could include printed electronic biosensors or packaging with embedded printed sensors.

John Cocker, director of printable electronics at CPI, said: “Many challenges remain in being able to integrate conventional and/or novel components into the devices that will unlock the value of the IoT. The Emerging Electronics Manufacturing Centre is focussed on addressing these challenges and helping its clients and partners to engage successfully in this exciting new opportunity”.

The project will provide open access assets and provide technical expertise, offering innovators the support necessary to make the leap from concept to commercialisation by providing the opportunity to carry out feasibility testing, develop, or scale up their innovative electronic products and manufacturing processes in a low risk environment
