STTR Phase II: Modulation-Assisted Deep Hole Drilling of Micro/Meso-Scale Biomedical Components

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / STTR / Phase II
Agency: NSF
Research Institution: Purdue University
Principal Investigator: James B. Mann, MS
Award Amount: $499,660.00
RI Contact: Srinivasan Chandrasekar
Abstract:
This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase II project aims to develop a Modulation-Assisted Machining (MAM) system with novel capabilities for micro/meso-scale deep-hole drilling of biomedical components. The system is structured around a new device; an accessory developed for computer… More

Ultrafine Grained Steel and Nickel Based Alloy Manufacturing

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Research Institution: Purdue University
Principal Investigator: James Mann, Director, Engineering
Award Amount: $99,892.00
RI Contact: S. Chandrasekar
Abstract:
This STTR project seeks to develop a new manufacturing system for large-scale, low-cost production of bulk ultrafine grained (UFG) or nanostructured metals in plate, sheet or bar forms. These capabilities will be based on scale-up of a new class of machining-based processes called large strain… More

SBIR Phase I: Large-Scale Production of Non-Ferrous Metal Fibers by Modulation-Assisted Machining

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: James B. Mann, PhD
Award Amount: $199,989.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will demonstrate a new way to produce metal fibers in materials such as titanium and aluminum alloys using a special machining process known as Modulation-Assisted Machining or MAM. The most widely adopted method for producing metal… More
