Nomination for 'Innovation of the year'
'Weight-saving metal components achieved by length-scale engineering' - Andy Bushby, Materials Research Institute.

Andy Bushby developed a simple manufacturing process for complex 3D-shaped metal engineering components in collaboration with a small UK company. The process produces higher strength from less material, which is important for hi-tech applications such as satellites. The technology has generated interest from companies such as airbus.
