Eriez has begun working on its cutting-edge R&D, Eriez at sbarc, located at Cardiff University in Wales. This partnership with Cardiff Innovations underscores its dedication to fostering innovation and expanding its R&D initiatives. Eriez’ Wales-based R&D team now operate primarily from this new, state-of-the-art facility.

Eriez’ history of working with Cardiff University began when Eriez joined the advisory board for the university’s Magnetic Materials & Applications (MAGMA) research centre. The relationship progressed into a successful Engineering and Knowledge Transfer Partnership (eKTP) from 2019 to 2022. The result of this effort is a groundbreaking new series of metal detectors from Eriez which are scheduled to launch in early 2024.

In addition to these achievements, Eriez has privately funded a project with the Cardiff University School of Engineering, focusing on enhancing the performance and reliability of metal detector coils. As of 2024, Eriez continues its partnership with Cardiff University on an artificial intelligence (AI) feasibility study, supported by InnovateUK, exploring AI techniques in metal detection for the food and pharmaceutical industries. Eriez is also actively involved in supporting an Accelerated Knowledge Transfer (AKT) initiative, investigating, and developing AI applications within metal detection and other related fields, according to Chris Dyer, R&D engineer, Eriez-Europe.

Mike Mankosa, Eriez EVP of global technology, said, "Joining forces with Cardiff University has been instrumental in driving innovation at Eriez, positioning us at the forefront of cutting-edge research and development and propelling our global technological leadership."
