Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Texas A&M University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N16A-T005
Budget: 05/20/16 - 12/30/16

In this proposed SBIR program, IBC Materials & Technologies, in conjunction with our industry partner Mechanical Solutions, Inc. (MSI) and Texas A&M University, will leverage our knowledge and experience in the domain of industrial metallic coatings to develop a metallurgical coating solution for the Air Foil Bearing. IBC has deep expertise in a...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-202
Budget: 07/07/15 - 07/07/16

ABSTRACT: Stainless steel ballscrew components, such as those found in landing gear and flap actuators on the C-130 aircraft, experience wear and subsequent failure due to corrosion, contamination and foreign object damage (FOD). High dither conditions, caused by constant short-travel, high-frequency movement to maintain level flight, can also ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N151-070
Budget: 07/06/15 - 05/06/16

As operating temperatures of marine propulsion systems increase, oxidation and hot corrosion of compressor, combustor and turbine section components are becoming increasingly acute, limiting the effectiveness of current coating systems on hot section components. Salt-deposit-induced hot corrosion in particular has become an intensive area of emp...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-202
Budget: 10/27/14 - 12/05/14

ABSTRACT: Stainless steel ballscrew components, such as those found in landing gear and flap actuators on the C-130 aircraft, experience wear and subsequent failure due to corrosion, contamination and foreign object damage (FOD). High dither conditions, where the actuator undergoes a constant short-travel, high-frequency movement to maintain ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: The Ohio State University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N14A-T014
Budget: 08/04/14 - 06/04/15

Modern aircraft make extensive use of fasteners made of steel, titanium, nickel and other alloys mated with aluminum and composite airframe materials. This coupling of dissimilar materials yields galvanic corrosion issues, which degrades mechanical integrity, is costly to inspect, and poses a safety and reliability risk. Traditional design appro...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N112-107
Budget: 04/17/13 - 04/10/15

Operation of turbine engines in marine environments presents a great challenge for bearings and gears composed of Pyrowear® 675. The harsh environment reduces bearing life and increases unscheduled maintenance. IBC Materials is developing an industrial-scale, novel thermal process utilizing a unique atmosphere and innovative heat treat process. ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF121-171
Budget: 05/21/12 - 01/21/13

ABSTRACT: Increasing temperatures, combined with an accelerated demand for reducing weight in the engine, is creating new problems that require innovative solutions. As temperatures increase, oxidation and hot corrosion of compressor, combustor and turbine section components are becoming increasingly acute, limiting the effectiveness of current...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N112-107
Budget: 10/17/11 - 04/17/12

Pitting corrosion limits the lifetime and performance of turbine engine bearings and gears operated in marine environments. A number of alloys and improved treatments have been attempted to increase corrosion resistance while maintaining mechanical performance of the bearings, but few meet the expectations. Some more corrosion resistant treatmen...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N092-117
Budget: 06/14/11 - 06/14/13

Pyrowear® 675 is noted as a high performance bearing material used in turbine engine and other higher temperature applications. The mechanical properties and stability necessary for these applications is achieved via carburizing by design. The carbides that form to provide the hot hardness and desired mechanical properties for bearing service ar...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-072
Budget: 03/17/11 - 03/17/13

ABSTRACT: The development of the F-35 Lift Fan has revealed the possibility of fretting between the fan input shaft bearing OD surface and the titanium bearing supports in the Lift Fan gearbox housing. A steel insert is currently used to provide protection against fretting of the gearbox housing. In order to provide an effective solution and r...
