Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: AM5-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to develop an effectively-thick coating (ETC) technology for machine tool applications. This technology will provide an effective thickness that is 5-20 times thicker than that of traditional coating while abating delamination issues that currently limit thickness. The approac...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: A7-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

This SBIR Phase II project will develop and commercialize a new energy efficient long-lifed cutting attachment for chipping cellulosic biomass into bio-fuel feedstock while achieving reduced specific energy, significantly longer knife-change intervals, and controllably-fine chips needed by various bio-fuel applications. The innovation involves a...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project develops a new cutting attachment for chipping/grinding/chopping of cellulosic biomass to yield feedstock for production of cellulosic ethanol. With increasing energy/diesel prices, power consumption in chipping/grinding/chopping is of heightened concern, as is the cost/inefficiency...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2007
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II research aims to develop and commercialize cutting tools with internal micro-geometric features to provide relatively direct and localized cooling of the tool-chip contact zone. The proposed innovation is (i) incorporation of micro-scale internal features and (ii) a production process that ...
