Feb 25, 2020
FRAMINGHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The US Department of Energy Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO) has selected Veloxint Corporation for a 3-year grant under the category of Innovations for the Manufacture of Advanced Materials. The project will bring together a world class industrial-government-academic team consisting of GE Research (GE), Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), University of Kentucky (UK), and Veloxint to develop and scale next generation nanocrystalline metal alloys via advanced manufacturing processes. The new metals will be stronger and lighter with excellent corrosion, wear and heat resistance, and the team will demonstrate lightweight engine blades from these metals with the potential for substantial improvements in specific fuel consumption of commercial aircrafts.
