The Mechanical and Manufacturing division is a group for members working in mechanical engineering and manufacturing in a broad range of industries, providing CPD and networking events for engineers.
Intel’s most complex tool – an ASML EUV lithography system – has arrived in Ireland and was transported from Oregon on four Boeing 747 cargo planes, with pieces weighing up to 15 tonnes each, while 35-plus trucks brought it on the final part of its journey via road.
Inspired by an ancient technology, engineers design a sensor that can measure pressure inside the digestive tract.
The sticky patch could be quickly applied to repair gut leaks and tears.
Mechanical engineers are using cutting-edge computing techniques to reimagine how the products, systems, and infrastructures we use are designed.
The findings could inform the design of new materials such as iridescent windows or waterproof textiles.
EleSkate, a sports analysis device which assesses the figure skating jump based upon its most important metrics, was the recent Irish winner of the James Dyson Award. Here we examine the project in detail, which was managed by a team of student engineers at Munster Technological University and led by Shannon O'Shea.
