Some of Advanced Manufacturing's Successes

Advanced Manufacturing has accomplished a LOT in the past year, including work with several DOE-funded programs: 

  • Co-PI of DOE , Accelerated discovery, design, and laser convergent manufacturing of low-temperature O-SOEC
  • Co-PI of DOE FECM program, Accelerated Discovery of Protection System and Laser Processing of Protective Coatings on CMC for Hydrogen Turbines
  • Co-PI of DOE EERE program, A Water Vapor Membrane Separation System for Process Drying and Latent Energy Recovery
  • Co-PI of DOE ARPA-E program, High-throughput computational guided development  of refractory complex concentrated alloys-based composite (Concluded)
  • Co-PI of DOE FE program, Wireless High Temperature Sensor Network

Additionally, they: 

  • have have sold a friction stir welding machine to North Carolina State University and established a close collaboration with them.
  • have sold a robotic type friction stir welding machine to Western New England University. They are setting up a local welding training center together.
  • are providing maintenance and consulting services in friction stir welding to the automobile industry throughout the US.

We are excited about the growth, including bringing their team to a solid 5 employees, up from one when they first joined the NMC in 2020. It's great to celebrate their growth and see them reaping the rewards from continued networking, pursuit of grants and funding, and leveraging the many grants and programs available around the state and in neighboring states to bring them quality interns and employees!
