President Stratonics, Inc. founded 1992 with expertise in IR sensing and process control of metal additive manufacturing and more generally, advanced materials processing. Recognized leaders in sensor development and integration with a range of metal AM processes. Won Navy SBIR project to develop multi-sensor/model-based controls for additive manufacturing. SBIR partners include Penn State Univ/ARL and Edison Welding Institute. Founding member of NAMII, now called America Makes, Ohio based non-profit to promote industrial uses of additive manufacturing. Won first round project from America Makes, teaming with Penn State and Carnegie Mellon U, furthering sensor transition into additional AM technologies.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Airbus Defence and Space has 3D printed titanium brackets for communications satellites. The redesigned, one-piece 3D-printed brackets have better thermal resistance than conventionally manufactured parts, can be produced faster, cost 20% less, and save about 1 kg of weight per satellite.
A group of researchers at the Seoul National University have discovered a way to take material from cigarette butts and turn it into a carbon-based material that’s ideal for storing energy and creating a powerful supercapacitor.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
