“It is unusual to meet a ‘Fellow from industry,’ so we are particularly proud to announce that FFEI has one of its very own, leading an array of innovations for our OEM clients,” says Andy Cook, managing director at FFEI.
FFEI is known for the design and manufacture of sophisticated solutions from concept to delivery. Cook explains, “Whether the challenge is to create software functions to enhance a workflow; accurately jet billions of ink droplets a second on to exotic materials; or even create ultra high resolution micro scanning mechanisms to research human tissue cells - it’s having people like Martin working for FFEI that allows us to innovate, productize and manufacture the breadth of digital inkjet and imaging technology we do for our clients.”
Having joined FFEI in 1985, Gouch has spent time working in a number of areas relating to the manufacture of graphics arts machines or products. As FFEI’s chief scientist, he is responsible for the overall technical lead in designing products for the company’s clients and has published an impressive 25 patents relating to inkjet and digital imaging. One of his products won a Queens Award for innovation in 2013.
