Croft Filters collaborates with students on filtration project using AM patent

June 10, 2021

Croft Filters Ltd, Warrington, Cheshire, UK, is currently engaged in a two-week project with third-year engineering students from Lancaster University to work on bespoke filter designs. The project aims to supply filtration solutions for potential customers utilising the Additive Manufacturing Patent that was recently granted to the company.

Companies who wish to develop their filtration system will have their filters customised to their respective systems by Croft and the engineering students, who may even come up with an innovative design to resolve the customer’s filtration challenge and improve their filtration system processes.

Croft Filters has worked in partnership with Lancaster University for some time, offering various opportunities for their students to acquire work experience. The company also sponsors the Made Here Now programme, an initiative focused on raising the profile of the manufacturing industry and attracting more young people to the sector.
