The Centre for Precision Technologies (CPT) is a centre of excellence for collaborative metrology research, solving real-world manufacturing problems through cutting edge metrology research in precision engineering.
At the forefront of creating new measurement techniques, we apply novel techniques to real world problems. Highly innovative research and strong links with industry resulted in the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) designating the CPT as a National Centre of Excellence in Advanced Metrology in 2011. Building on this success, CPT was awarded a £10 million EPSRC grant to create a Future Manufacturing Research Hub in 2017. Headed by Professor Dame Xiang Jiang, the Future Metrology Hub’s focus is to transform the UK’s manufacturing performance by delivering significant improvements in the speed, accuracy and cost of measurement.
