Polymer Innovation – What Does it Mean to You and Your Business?

The Polymer Innovation part of the IIPSI project is tasked with helping West Midlands based SMEs to grow by assisting them to develop and introduce innovative polymer products. This is a huge research area with new materials and processes appearing all the time, so the potential range of projects we can carry out with companies is very broad. Current research that we are working on includes:

  • Additive Manufacturing – building plastic parts a layer at a time using printing techniques
  • Plastic electronics – embedding functionality such as lighting into plastic parts
  • Micromoulding – making tiny parts using specialist injection moulding equipment
  • Sustainable polymers and composites – ‘green’ materials with lower environmental impact

…but now is your chance to have your say and ensure that the IIPSI provides the assistance that you need!

We’d love to hear any comments and suggestions on the innovative uses of polymers you’d like to develop within your business. Please feel free to comment below or to contact one of the SME team by email or on Twitter @WMGSME.

IIPSI Update

I can’t believe it is Friday already. We have had a really busy week. We are working hard at the moment to promote the new IIPSI building and the programme of support we will be offering as widely as possible across the West Midlands. It will be a facility that SMEs can make use of to develop new products and services around three distinct areas: Digital Technologies, User Focussed Design and Multi-functional Polymers. Check out the pictures in the gallery to see how we are progressing.

We hosted a networking event on Tuesday evening for the Solihull, Coventry and Warwickshire branch of UKITA and hosted 20 businesses who attended a CRM workshop. Whenever businesses come in and see us we are capturing feedback about some of the facilities and demonstrators we are developing for the IIPSI building. For the multi-functional polymers area we are developing applications in shape memory polymers and electroluminescent polymers so that businesses will be able to see how the technology could be applied to a product they are developing. Additionally in the area of digital media, we are looking at setting up a Mobile App Lab so that we can support businesses develop mobile apps for their websites. We want to know if businesses would find this useful. If you are interested in talking to us about how your business can benefit from IIPSI please get in touch.
