UTARI is located in a multimillion dollar, 48,000-square-foot facility on the University’s scenic Riverbend Campus in Fort Worth.
Inside the UT Arlington Research Institute, you’ll find research laboratories previously unavailable to corporate America, including a 1,650-square-foot pilot production facility dedicated to the custom development of scalable processes for automated micromanufacturing.
UTARI’s research area also features three advanced manufacturing laboratories, one prorotyping laboratory, two robotics laboratories (including a dedicated assistive robotics laboratory), and two biomedical laboratories. There are also two Micro-Electro- Mechanical Systems (MEMS) cleanrooms, controls labs, and separate labs for advanced controls, advanced packaging, medical microdevices, piezoelectrics, and more.
A one-of-a-kind research and development area, where novel and automated manufacturing technologies are studied, developed, and evaluated through custom hardware and software.
This lab has a wide range of high-tech equipment related to silicon microfabrication, micro-electro-mechanical systems devices, sensors, and electronics.
The Assistive Robotics Laboratory is equipped with several robotic platforms, along with other technology.
A lab that houses a unique blend of equipment for research and development, prototyping, low volume manufacturing, as well as testing and characterization of medical device.
UTARI's Living Laboratory is set up like an apartment space and features projects focused on enabling our robotic platforms to assist people with common household activities.
The Rapid Prototyping lab deals with prototyping, test-bed designing, and development. Its capabilities include 3-D printers, CNC milling machines, laser cutting and engraving machines, lathes, and assembly stations.
Also called the Nikola Tesla Laboratory, this lab supports silicon and non-silicon material processing of MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) with support from fabrication, inspection, and packaging tools.
