The Centre for Process Innovation (CPI) is a UK based R&D institute that helps companies develop and scale manufacturing processes. CPI caters for the pharma, food, chemical, energy, transportation and printable electronics markets. It is a non-profit institute funded by the UK government, the private sector (through contract R&D services) and matched-funding EU projects.
CPI hosts UK's printed electronics technology center which includes an OLED/OPV prototyping line called LACE (built by MBraun) that can produce up to 20 samples per day with a panel size from 100mm to 200mm square. The line has slot-die and spin coating modules, metal and organic evaporation and encapsulation and enables deposition of OLED materials.
The CPI hosts the UK's National Centre for Healthcare Photonics, and also hosts another center focused on graphene research.
