We have an extensive range of world class equipment available for hire, from drones to laser cutters, and 3D printers to Internet of Things (IoT) technology. Where applicable, the equipment can be hired with a technician to support. For our full listing, visit our database of equipment.

Drones image

Access the latest DJI drones, including Inspire 2 which offers high-end cinematography and the Matrice M210 RTK for advanced 3D mapping applications. You’ll be supported by highly trained CAA qualified commercial drone operators.

3D printers image
3D printers

Our industry standard 3D printers can be used for a range of printing styles including Fusion Disposition Modelling (FDM) and Stereolithography. We offer affordable and fast printing from concept through to design.

Laser cutters image
Laser cutters

We offer laser cutter machines that can cut, etch and engrave on wood, plastic, fabric, leather, and paper. This technique results in high precision and edge quality versus traditional cutting methods.

Video and filming image
Video and filming

Our high definition Canon camcorders offer professional video recording with multi-camera recordings. You can also hire video lighting kits to allow for lighting in locations that require it.

Photography image

Our Sony Mirrorless Cameras are capable of high-speed continuous shooting (up to 20 frames per second for fast moving subjects), whilst achieving up to 61 megapixel resolutions.

Audio recording image
Audio recording

Our recording equipment can be hired for professional audio and podcast recording. This includes radio microphones, a shotgun microphone and an audio recorder.


Our halochamber facilitates testing of personal protective equipment under ‘in use’ conditions, to quantify the protection given against viral infections. We can evaluate visors, googles, masks, gloves and aprons during physical tasks common to clinical environments.

Nuclear magnetic resonance image
Nuclear magnetic resonance

Our Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectrometer analyses organic materials by observing and measuring the interaction of nuclear spins when placed in a powerful magnetic field. This non-destructive technique is beneficial for structural determination of molecules.

Mass spectrometry image
Mass spectrometry

Our mass spectrometry equipment facilitates routine and exploratory analysis in blood, plasma, and tissue homogenate, as well as protein and bacterial identification, peptide mass fingerprinting, oligonucleotide analysis, polymer analysis and biomarker identification.

CNC machine image
CNC machine

Our CNC machine offers a three-axis milling process, with two additional axes of rotation. This achieves faster speeds, less tool deflection, an excellent surface finish and an accurate dimensional result.

Internet of Things image
Internet of Things

Prototype advanced systems, from electronic devices to server applications with our IoT facilities. Test device communications over IP, or integrate sensor networks using Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Zigbee and LoRaWAN.

Water jet cutters image
Water jet cutters

Our water jet cutters use an extremely high-pressure of jet water combined with abrasive, to cut a wide variety of materials. The tool gives extremely accurate results, that are repeatable on thicknesses up to 100mm.
