The University of Manchester 

The Project:

The overall objective of this KTP is to develop, embed and exploit expertise in materials science and surface engineering in order to enable Sandon Global Engraving Technology Ltd (Sandon Global) – a leading manufacturer of anilox rolls and cylinders for the flexographic, lithographic and metal decoration print industries – to progress as the commercial centre of excellence for Anilox technology.

The KTP Associate

Dmitry has become the driving force for innovation within the company and the conduit between the academic and industry teams – balancing the possible with the practical. We believe he will go on to be a very successful innovation leader of the future, hopefully within Sandon Global”. 

Amongst his achievements:

  • Introduced changes to both manufacturing methodologies and powder composition leading to substantial increase in products passing through quality assurance and a reduction in non-compliance rejects due to coating failures 
  • Proactive approach, modifying the project plan to maximise commercial opportunities 
  • Embedded new thermal spraying technique: significantly improved tribological properties of Sandon Global’s products 
  • Translated in-depth research & analysis into commercial opportunities and influenced major investment in new thermal spraying systems and a powder manufacturing facility, enabling Sandon to transform itself into a company with innovation at the very centre of its culture.

In 2019 Sandon was awarded an Innovate UK grant to develop laser technology capable of engraving the new coatings developed during this KTP.

Winners of this category will be announced in advance of the KTP Virtual Awards Ceremony which is at 4-5pm on Wednesday 9 September. Join us in our virtual world to celebrate all the winners – register here.
