AME012  |  Finishing Apparatus using electron beam and ion beam to improve the surface Integrity

The technology utilises an electron and ion beam to create a device for surface finishing applications. The device improves both the surface finish and material properties such as the hardness of the workpiece. In addition, the technology offers a process that is more eco-friendly compared to conventional processes, and enables time-saving by using an easily controlled motion system.

Low-cost Graphene Manufacturing Process

This technology presents a simple, cost effective process for producing high-quality graphene from low-cost graphite, which may be sold at more than 200 times the price on a per kg basis. The quality and repeatability of this manufacturing process has been fully characterized.  The process is ready to be scaled up for large-scale production, with the potential to produce high quality graphene in tonnes. One of the key properties resulting from this process is that the graphene produced is well-dispersed in polymer materials allowing it to be easily integrated into new products.  Patent protection has been sought for this technology.

Microfluidic Enhancement of Chemiluminescent Detection

The invention consists of a portable and lightweight microfluidic flow injection analysis platform, which integrates a surface acoustic wave device into a continuous flow system. The technology platform combines chemiluminescence science with advanced lab-on-a-chip techniques to produce a handheld miniaturised device that can compete with state-of-the-art bench scale instruments. Demonstration of the prototype in the laboratory has shown to detect substances at below one part per billion, an order of magnitude better than existing portable devices and approaching theoretical limits for detection.

AME074  |  Low Residual Torque Singles Ring Yarn Technology

This technology is a breakthrough in yarn manufacturing. It provides the means to produce yarns with low or zero residual torque and high strength. The reduced residual torque yarn can be woven and knitted in fabrics with very soft handle, low spirality, good strength and pilling performance. The technology can be applied on cotton and worsted spinning systems, and brings improvements to the overall throughput of a spinning factory by improving the bottleneck in spinning process. It is estimated that the overall productivity of spinning operation can be enhanced by 20 – 40%.
