Professor of Innovative Manufacturing, Director - EPSRC Centre for Additive Manufacturing, Faculty of Engineering
Richard Hague is Professor of Innovative Manufacturing in the Department of Mechanical, Materials and Manufacturing Engineering at the University of Nottingham, Head of the Additive Manufacturing and 3D-Printing Research Group (3DPRG) and Director of the EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Additive Manufacturing. He has been working in the AM field for 20 years and has a background of leading and managing large multi-disciplinary, multi-partner research projects. Prof Hague's research interests are focused on AM specific processes, materials and design / design systems across a wide spectrum of industrial sectors with a particular interest in design / design systems; current research programmes are focused on the design and production of multifunctional additively manufactured devices. He is also Chair of the International Conference on Additive Manufacturing & 3D Printing and active within the ASTM F42 AM Standards initiativ
Director, EPSRC Centre for Additive Manufacturing.
Current basic research interests are focused on multifunctional Additive Manufacturing - the deposition of dissimilar materials for the production of functionalised devices - where I have broad interests covering design, processes and materials, with the majority of the process led activity being focused on ink-jetting. I also have a strong interest in applied research where our previous research efforts are being taken up industrially across a broad range of sectors (auto / aero, consumer, medical, etc)
