Prof. Phill Dickens, University of Nottingham

He was the first academic worldwide to investigate multi-pass welding to make 3D metal shapes. He was also the first to show the technical feasibility of injection moulding into stereolithography tool cavities and this is often used by companies to make prototype tooling.

Phill has obtained multiple grants to support research work ranging from small activities to multi-million pound research centres. Most work has involved multi-disciplinary activity with national and international academic collaborators and supported by industrial partners. He has recently spun-out Added Scientific Ltd http://addedscientific.com as a result of the uptake of this technology.
