Projects per year
Charles MacLeod is a Professor in the Centre for Ultrasonic Engineering.
He is the Babcock International Group / Royal Academy of Engineering Chair in Sensor-Driven Automated Welding.
He is director of the Sensor Enabled Automation & Robotics Control Hub (SEARCH), a £24M research innovation and technology transfer laboratory. Aligned to this, he is Course Director of the Autonomous Robotic Intelligent Systems (ARIS) MSc.
His research is primarily associated with the inspection and manufacturing enhancement of high-value assets and components, where he leads a number of high-profile inter-disciplinary in-process welding and metal additive research projects.
He has driven and co-developed core robotic and ultrasonic technology from fundamental EPSRC research, which is now being licensed by a leading industrial organisation and co-developed an innovative inspection robot for a critical life-extension inspection at Sellafield Reprocessing Facility.
He is the PI and designer of the Engaging Robotic Interactive Cell (ERIC) STEM Outreach cell.
His research interests include:
In-Process Inspection of Fusion Welding & Metal Additive Components
Sensors including Ultrasonic, Electromagnetic, Tactile and Visual
Automation & Robotics
Automated Manufacturing & Welding
