ADAPT Receives DoD Funds for Cooperative Industry Research

ADAPTSM is collaborating with three industry partners on new research into advanced manufacturing for military applications. The U.S. Department of Defense has awarded Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grants to conduct cooperative research with ADAPT members Citrine Informatics and Elementum 3D, as well as Boulder-based Special Aerospace Services (SAS). The funded projects include 3D printing of rocket nozzles, a materials informatics framework to predict the effects of additive manufacturing defects, and the development of new steels that soldiers could easily print with in the theater of war.

Lithoz Installs Ceramic Printer at Colorado School of Mines

Lithoz connected with ADAPT through a research collaboration with Professors Corinne Packard and Geoff Brennecka at Colorado School of Mines. Mines is currently investigating mechanical properties of ceramics produced by lithography-based ceramic manufacturing (LCM) with the intent of exploring whether separate standards are needed for ceramic AM.

Featured: This month's featured article comes from our collaborators at Carnegie Mellon’s NextManufacturing consortium and Argonne National Laboratory. Prof. Rollett and his team published their work imaging the formation of keyhole pores during laser powder bed fusion additive manufacturing in real time, and extracted the scientific knowledge into a fundamental process-structure model that can be used to avoid keyhole porosity. Keyhole threshold and morphology in laser melting revealed by ultrahigh-speed x-ray imaging »
