The MEU supplies a precision engineering and solution solving service to the healthcare sector, university researchers and general engineering component industries, covering prototype and development work through to quality production requirements.

In addition to the benefit that comes from having been established for over 30 years, the geographical location of the MEU should not be underestimated as an advantage, particularly with respect to customer accessibility. Being located in one of the largest teaching hospital and Medical School complexes in Europe has given the MEU a lead in the implementation of new technologies and techniques, and this lead is maintained by the expertise of the MEU’s dedicated team of professional engineers who assist in all stages of planning and manufacturing.

With new investment the MEU now offers facilities such as:

  • designing, 3D modelling
  • 3D printing
  • CAD/CAM machining capabilities with high tech CNC machines
  • EDM  (Electric Discharge Machining)
  • sheet metal and fabrication
  • welding
  • modification and development of existing equipment

The MEU has the experience and capability to work in a diverse range of materials such as:

  • stainless steel
  • titanium
  • aluminium
  • plastics

Over the many years of involvement with the healthcare sector we have already successfully taken products and medical device prototypes from the drawing board through to mass production on the open market.
