UMass Advanced Roll-to-Roll Manufacturing Facility

UMass Integrated Life Sciences Building

The design for the Roll to Roll Fabrication and Processing Facility at the University of Massachusetts Amherst has been completed and tool acquisition is presently underway. The facility, made possible through a grant to the campus by the Massachusetts Life Sciences Council, is a component of the Center for Personalized Health Monitoring at UMass, and will support translational R&D through multiple departments on campus to develop next generation wearable sensor technologies while providing an industry collaboration and manufacturing demonstration facility to accelerate the commercialization of advanced flexible hybrid electronics technologies and products. While the anticipated opening of the facility is scheduled for the first quarter of 2016, many of the tools will be up and running in existing laboratories on campus in the coming months.
