Unity Scientific Wins 2018 Frost & Sullivan Manufacturing Leadership Award

Media Contact:  Bob Schumann

Milford, MA – March 15, 2018 – Unity Scientific, a KPM Company, today announced that it has been recognized by Frost & Sullivan as a Manufacturing Leadership Awards winner for its outstanding achievement in the Engineering and Production Technology Leadership category for applying 3D printing and electronic alignment technologies in the manufacturing process.
Unity Scientific’s winning SpectraStar project uses advanced techniques to manufacture a line of complex, high precision NIR spectrophotometers for laboratory and at-line use. The use of 3D printing to make a complete spectrograph chassis (patent pending) dramatically minimizes assembly labor. Final optical alignment is made by electronically matching the system to a set of infrared wavelength standards (patent pending), virtually eliminating instrument to instrument variation and further reducing labor. In the past, manual orientation and alignment of each individual optical element would be required. The application of the 3D printed optical bench and automated electronic alignment provides the most advanced system for the manufacturing of high performance spectrophotometers.

The Unity Scientific engineering team will be recognized at the 14th Annual Manufacturing Leadership Awards Gala, which is to be held on the last day of the Manufacturing Leadership Summit, June 11-13, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort and Spa in Huntington Beach, CA.
