  1. An Optical Imaging System to Characterize Mechanical Deformation at Microscopic Length Scale

    SBC: Additive Manufacturing Innovations LLC            Topic: 90

    Additive Manufacturing Innovations LLC (AM-Innov) in collaboration with Clarkson University and Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) proposes a new optical imaging system to characterize microscopic deformation of materials. The system, named as a Mechanical Testing at Microscale system (MT@micro), uses a micro-tensile testing device to mechanically load the specimen uniaxially and an optical imaging p ...

  2. Standardizing Grease Sampling and Characterization By Automated Online Device

    SBC: Poseidon Systems, LLC            Topic: 90

    Scheduled grease sampling is one of the more reliable methods for detecting mechanical issues within machinery. Offline laboratory‐based analysis of the grease can indicate component failures, such as spalling via high concentrations of ferrous particulates. However, consistency, costs, and frequency of sampling are less than ideal. Manually collecting grease samples can put personnel in danger ...

  3. Direct Performance Evaluation of Additive Manufacturing Process Plans

    SBC: INTACT SOLUTIONS INC.            Topic: 90

    Additive manufacturing is steadily advancing towards fulfilling its promise of customized and on-demand production of functional parts. However, performance of as-manufactured parts can differ significantly from the as-designed parts because the as-manufactured geometry differs from the as-designed geometry and the as-manufactured material properties are unknown. Attempts to predict performance of ...

  4. Nanomachine Device for Semiconductor Process Control Monitoring

    SBC: Xallent LLC            Topic: None

    Conventional characterization and test methods are increasingly ineffective when applied to structures less than 100 nanometers, causing challenges across R&D, process control and failure analysis. An increasing number of subtle defects become prominent drivers of failure as device size and operating margins decrease, e.g., processing anomalies in thin gate oxides, substrate problems related to do ...
