Fabrisonic named “2012 Outstanding Startup Business” https://www.fabrisonic.com/blogs/fabrisonic-named-2012-outstanding-startup-business/ https://www.fabrisonic.com/blogs/fabrisonic-named-2012-outstanding-startup-business/#comments Tue, 12 Feb 2013 18:23:07 +0000 Mark Norfolk http://www.fabrisonic.com/blogs/?p=126






On Thursday February 7, central Ohio gathered at the annual TechColumbus Innovation Awards.  Twenty-eight Ohio businesses were nominated for the “2012 Outstanding Start-up Business” award which recognizes high-perfomance companies established within the last 5 years.  Fabrisonic was first runner up in this category last year, and this year we were able to bring home the award.  We are honored to be named as the winner of this prestigious award considering all of the great technology companies growing in around Columbus.

Fabrisonic Visits SFF https://www.fabrisonic.com/blogs/fabrisonic-visits-sff/ https://www.fabrisonic.com/blogs/fabrisonic-visits-sff/#comments Tue, 07 Aug 2012 11:43:16 +0000 Mark Norfolk http://www.fabrisonic.com/blogs/?p=68 This week Fabrisonic is at the Twenty Third Annual International Solid Freeform Fabrication Symposium in Austin Texas.  The conference covers in depth research of a myriad of different additive manufacturing technologies.

Yesterday we started the day hearing from Terry Wohlers on why he believes there will not be a 3d printer in every home.  The basic premise of his argument is that people are accustomed to buying “stuf” and don’t have the ability or time to truly design parts to be printed.  Thus, the technology will likely be relegated to geeks and hobbyist.  Interesting conversation.

During the afternoon session, we heard 8 papers on Ultrasonic Additive Manufacturing.  This included papers from The Ohio State University, Loughborough University in the UK, Clemson, and University of Louisville.  It was great to have so many researchers in the UAM field all together at one event.  We are already looking for an even larger group next year.

Zero coefficient of thermal expansion https://www.fabrisonic.com/blogs/zero-coefficient-of-thermal-expansion/ https://www.fabrisonic.com/blogs/zero-coefficient-of-thermal-expansion/#comments Wed, 25 Jul 2012 14:15:18 +0000 Mark Norfolk http://www.fabrisonic.com/blogs/?p=62 Fabrisonic has been working closely with Ohio State University for some time.  Today we attended the annual meeting of the Smart Vehicle Concept Center.  Current projects include the development of smart materials and devices for vehicle use.  This pre-competitive technology is shared among contributing members.

Fabrisonic has been working with Dr Marcelo Dapino and his students to embed a shape memory alloy, nitinol, into an aluminum matrix.  The team has achieved a material with almost 50% nitinol by volume.  As the material is heated the aluminum expands.  However, the nitinol goes through a phase transformation and actually contracts.  The sum of the expansion and contraction cancel out.  This creates a material with a very small coefficient of thermal expansion.  This has many applications in bearings and structures with high tolerances.
