Embedded Conformal Electronics and Sensors Via Novel Additive-Subtractive Fabrication Technology
Continual monitoring of machine parts for more efficiency using thermal spray technology coupled with precision laser materials Background: Engineering systems are becoming incredibly complex and efficient. However, as a result of these very powerful machines, when components break it is very expensive. There is also no central monitoring system for the components, thus lowering efficiency of machines over a period of time. Therefore, machines need to be monitored to schedule repairs at opportune times. Technology Overview: Thermal spray technology coupled with precision laser materials over electronic components. The electronics are extremely robust, and the technology enables long-life sensing and health monitoring systems for the components in a machine. Advantages: -More control over components
-Less major repairs
-More cost effective Applications: This technology enables monitoring of machinery to lessen major repairs and could be applicable in the following industries: - Production - Service - Distribution - Power Intellectual Property Summary: Patented Stage of Development: (https://patents.google.com/patent/US7709766) Licensing Potential: Licensing,Commercial partner,Development partner Licensing Status: Available for Licensing.
