  1. Ceramic Additive Manufacturing for Metal Castings

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY ASSESSMENT AND TRANSFER, INC.            Topic: DLA152003

    Additive manufacturing of integrally cored ceramic molds promises substantial cost savings and much shorter development cycles for the cooled blades and vanes of the high pressure turbine section of aircraft engines. AM directly prints the ceramic mold and core as a monolithic body, thereby eliminating the major steps of ceramic core and wax pattern fabrication. Based on a cost analysis conducte ...

  4. Upscaling and Optimization of Magnet to Magnet Recycling

    SBC: Urban Mining Company            Topic: DLA161003

    Neodymium-iron-boron rare-earth based magnets are key components of mobile phones, electric vehicles, wind-turbines and many critical US defense systems. Despite their importance, the US is completely reliant on imports from China for their supply. Future supply risk renders this situation untenable, yet re-establishing the supply chain for these magnets in the US could take two decades. Urban Min ...

  5. Premature Cure Indication for QwikSeal® Pre-Sealed Fastener Technology; Topic #DLA08-01

    SBC: SYSTEMS & MATERIALS RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: DLA08001

    Systems and Materials Research Corporation (SMRC) has developed a proprietary process called QwikSeal for pre-coating fasteners with cure-blocked sealant, then overcoating the pre-applied sealant with a moisture-impermeable size coat. QwikSeal is designed to replace the current “wet installation” process where sealant is mixed and applied to each fastener at the point of installation, and whic ...

  6. SoldierBoost, Nutrient-Dense Soldier Food Bar Ration

    SBC: SYSTEMS & MATERIALS RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: DLA163001

    Soldiers engaged in Sustained Operations can burn up to 6,000 kcal of energy per day, which cannot be compensated for by current rations - Meals, Ready-to-Eat and First Strike Rations only provide up to 3,750 kcal/day and 2,900 kcal/day, respectively. This energy debt is further aggravated by the fact that most soldiers "field strip" their rations, removing menu items that are undesirable, or that ...

  7. Advanced Technologies for Discrete-Parts Manufacturing

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: DLA07001

    Ceramics materials have great potential in a wide variety of applications but their use is often limited by the associated high cost of machining. Developing laser assisted machining (LAM) for a commercial environment will greatly mitigate these costs. Nanohmics and Dr. Y. C. Shin of Purdue University have teamed with Progressive

  8. A Cryogenic Grinding System for the High Productivity Grinding of Advanced Materials

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DLA09001

    High performance metals, ceramics, and hard coatings are used in military applications to enhance the performance of key systems needed by the warfighter. One of the most prevalent operations to remove material, achieve the desired surface finish, or enhance part quality is bulk and finish grinding. For typical cutting speeds, conventional synthetic or oil-based coolants are sufficient to remove ...
