Focus Area: Local Production Technology
Estimated Budget Range: TBD
Registration Deadline: NA
Manufacturers are looking for shorter cycles of innovation as they seek to become more local and efficient. There is much interest in local product production – from digital file to low-cost replication. Think light manufacturing, synthetic biology and 3D printing (Boeing prints some 22,000 different airline parts).
Current innovations sought include three-dimensional printers capable of achieving high quality at volumes as low as a single unit, while also enabling entirely new designs and material structures and combinations. There is special interest in printers that support advanced manufacturing by layering more than one type of material. These could enabling smart components to be fabricated with embedded sensors and circuitry, such as hearing aids or motion-sensing gloves.
Another still-emerging process, called cold spraying, involves blasting metallic particles through a nozzle at such high speeds that they bind to each other to form shapes. By precisely controlling the nozzle, machine operators can build up a three-dimensional metal object like a gear much the same way a 3D printer does.
