Research Institution
Keystone will continue maturing the metal deposition technology shown to be feasible for meeting the goals of he program during Phase I. It is the goal of the Phase II project to produce a full saale Invar tool using metal deposition technology and to validate the tooling package by producing several composite components. Keystone is using a team approach, inclucing proven companies in the state-of-the-art of metal deposition, those currently producing Invar tooling, as well as a large OEM to verify the Invar tooling produced under this program by producing several composite components. The manufacturing cost and cycle time savings will be quantified and verified utilizing Keystone proprietary process cost modeling methods.
