Innovative Manufacturing and Materials Programme

Our events...

The Innovative Manufacturing and Materials Programme welcomes your attendance and participation in our insightful events held throughout the year. A list of PAST EVENTS is also provided below.

Dr Jonathan Stringer - Lecturer, Mechanical Engineering

Tech Tuesday Forum for Innovative Manufacturers


Print is historically associated with adding value, and the development of digital technologies – particularly inkjet printing – expands these efforts with the introduction of novel materials to the process. We see plenty of evidence of this today, in printed electronic circuits, biosensors, biomaterials, smart packaging and more.

Dr Jonathan Stringer will feature case studies and consider new possibilities for a broad range of industries with a simple core message in mind: using quick, cost-efficient technologies to transform seemingly ordinary raw materials into high-value products that can potentially reshape our manufacturing approaches as we know them.

DATE & TIME: Tuesday 6 November 2018 | 5 - 7pm (Nibbles and drinks will be served)

VENUE: University of Auckland, Newmarket Campus Seminar Room (902.402) | Free parking via Gate 3, 306 Khyber Pass Road (please register your vehicle at reception to avoid towing)



PRESENTER: Dr Jonathan Stringer, Lecturer, Mechanical Engineering



Dr Jonathan Stringer is Lecturer in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Auckland. He has been actively researching in the areas of inkjet printing, 3D printing, additive manufacturing, coatings and printed electronics for over a decade, producing a number of peer reviewed journal articles, conference proceedings and book chapters.  He obtained his PhD from the University of Manchester in 2007 and has subsequently worked in research positions both at Manchester and at the University of Sheffield.
