Many of our modern research facilities and equipment can be used by external researchers – you can run your own testing or development programme, and we can work with you to determine the right equipment for your needs and provide training to use it.
We love technology, and know how to use it – it's in our name. You can partner with us to use technology not readily available in the commercial world: perhaps your NPD could benefit from our motion capture technology, or maybe you want to access our rotary and linear reciprocating tribometers, or you want to trial 3D printing before committing to invest. We can provide access to the latest technology, and the expertise to make the most of it.
Based at our City Campus, AUT's 3D Printing Lab combines hardware and software technologies as well as a laser cutter.
A training lab for our biomedical and medical laboratory students, you can access state-of-the-art machines and equipment for scientific testing in clinical chemistry, molecular diagnostics, haematology and immunology.
The Motion Capture Lab offers facilities for body, facial and object capture using industry leading technology.
PIGsty is a virtual lab connecting video game projects to resources, funding and research and is available for consultation and collaboration. Facilities and equipment can be used by external researchers.
The SEM images a sample by using a beam of high-energy electrons instead of light waves. It offers ultra-high res images and magnifications of up to 800,000 times.
The Textile and Design Lab's services include access to technical experts as well as cutting edge textile technologies. Equipment includes design systems and flatbed knitting systems, digital printers and a FeltLOOM® machine.
The first research lab of its kind in New Zealand, the Tribology and Surface Engineering Laboratory has a range of modern test instruments that can be used by external researchers.
