About our work
MNA Innovation is an Irish high-tech company, whose expertise is in freeform manufacturing, ultra-precision manufacturing and precision metrology with applications in areas of optics and photonics, biomedical implants and medical devices.
Freeform surfaces have very unique characteristics and are used more in various industrial sectors, as they can simplify system structures with fewer components, achieve lower mass and cost, smaller package-size and improved performance. It also gives industrial designers more flexibility and feasibility to realize more novel ideas.
Micro/nano structures on a product surfaces give additional functionality, such as anti-reflection, anti-biofouling and self-cleaning. For example, compound eyes of moths are a curvilinear design of hexagonally packed microlenses, which focus light onto the internal photoreceptors. The surface of each lens is further textured into patterns of hexagonally packed, sub-wavelength, antireflective (AR) nanostructures to help reduction in reflection of light, enhancing the light sensitivity of the eyes of moths.
Products based on freeform surfaces and micro/nano structures require not only high precision forms, but also delicate micro/nano features. MNA innovation is committed to support our customers to develop and manufacturing innovative products with either high precision form with nanometric roughness or complex surface structures based on our expertise in freeform manufacturing and ultra-precision manufacturing.

International Academy of Engineering and Technology
Aerotech began as a pledge — to advance the science of precision motion control with a focus and dedication far beyond what a business plan or profit and loss statement could measure. Today, Aerotech stands as the world’s only privately held, globally active, engineering-driven company Dedicated to the Science of Motion.
University College Dublin
UCD is one of Europe’s leading research-intensive universities where undergraduate education, postgraduate masters and PhD training, research, innovation and community engagement form a dynamic continuum of activity. The University was established in 1854 by John Henry Newman whose classic work The Idea of a University is one of the most enduring texts on the value of higher education and a source of inspiration for UCD’s current educational philosophy.
Tianjin University is the oldest institution of higher education in the modern history of China. Founded in 1895 as Peiyang University, Tianjin University’s 123-year history is the epitome of the progress of modern Chinese higher education, embodying the Chinese people’s indomitability through challenging times. During its growth spanning three centuries, the University has been a pioneer in several fields, from the first aero engine in China to the first Hydraulics Laboratory established in China.
SOPT focuses on the development, processing and manufacturing of core, precision and micro devices in the fields of optics and optoelectronic instruments and systems, biological and medical instruments and equipment, high-tech daily necessities, aerospace and computer peripherals. It has strong strength in optical aspherical and free-form surface design, processing, brittle material processing, focused ion beam processing (FIB), ultra-precision machining and measurement.
International Academy of Engineering and Technology (AET) was founded with the aim to promoting international collaboration between academia and industry. AET recruits members all over the world. AET has Fellows who are internationally recognized. AET provides technical resolution-oriented services that operates via networks.
