UCD Centre of Micro/Nano Manufacturing Technology 

MiNAN Technologies is based in University College Dublin (UCD), Ireland. We are located in the Laboratory for Polymer Micro/Nano Manufacturing in School of Mechanical & Materials Engineering.

We have more than 10 years of R&D experience of injection moulds development,simulationback-end processes, and precision replication using microinjection moulding and nanoimprinting. We now have full process chain and supply chain for fast prototyping and small quantity production for validation of your product design and new laboratory products into clinical trials. We have been working with collaborators both from industry and academia on commercialized products including plastic microfluidics, microneedles or micro-optics


We are supported by an exceptional, multidisciplinary team of micro/nano manufacturing specialists, material scientists, biologists and experienced technical specialists. We are ready to understand your requirements and provide engineering solutions for your customized product development.
