Colorado Selected for National Advanced Manufacturing Technology Sites | Colorado Innovation Network

Colorado Selected for National Advanced Manufacturing Technology Sites | Colorado Innovation Network | Manufacturing Processes | Scoop.it

President Barack Obama today announced the state of Colorado and the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT) will receive funding from the Department of Defense’s institutes for manufacturing innovation. OEDIT partnered with the Colorado School of Mines and with the University of Colorado Boulder on programs to support innovation and collaboration in Colorado’s advanced manufacturing industries.

 

OEDIT partnered with the Colorado School of Mines on the Lightweight Modern Metals Manufacturing Institute (LM3I) and with the University of Colorado Boulder for the Digital Manufacturing and Design Institute (DMDI).

 

“These new advanced manufacturing sites will leverage our existing efforts in innovation and technology such as the Colorado Innovation Network and the Advanced Industries Accelerator Act to put Colorado at the forefront of advanced manufacturing,” said Ken Lund, director of OEDIT. “These technology hubs will help small and medium sized businesses to increase productivity, develop new products, strengthen the state’s supply chain, grow exports and build a trained workforce. We thank our federal, state and private partners for helping Colorado to join the national advanced industries hubs.”

 

The Colorado School of Mines will serve as one of four core facilities in the newly formed American Lightweight Materials Manufacturing Institute (ALMMII) for the LM3I project. ALMMII will be headquartered in Michigan and led by Columbus, Ohio-based EWI, University of Michigan and The Ohio State University. ALMMII will expand the market for and create new consumers of products and systems to utilize new, lightweight, high performing metals and alloys–titanium, aluminum and high-strength steels–by removing technological barriers in manufacturing.

 

Colorado School of Mines will develop thermomechanical process improvements and technologies, which will have broad application to Colorado’s key industries such as military and defense, aerospace, energy and natural resources, advanced manufacturing, infrastructure engineering and transportation and logistics.

Stainless steel fabricators

Grade 316 is more commonly used by Sheet Metal Fabricators when it comes to marine applications because it has a higher corrosion resistance and greater strength at higher temperatures. There are five typical processes used by Stainless Steel Fabricators for the fabrication of stainless steel. These processes are: 1. CNC Laser Cutting 2. CNC Punching 3. CNC Bending 4. Welding 5. Finishing

Sand casting

A sand casting process is performed in what is called a sand casting foundry – a specialized factory equipped to handle all your sand casting needs. When it comes to the sand casting process , there are six main steps to note: 1. The Pattern – During this step in the process, a pattern is placed in the sand in order to create a mold. 2. The gating system – During this step in the sand casting process, the pattern and sand is incorporated in what is called a gating system. 3. Removal – During this step in the casting process the pattern is removed. 4. Filling – It is during this step that the cavity of the mold is filled with a molten or liquid metal. 5. Cooling – The metal that was poured into the mold’s cavity in the previous step, is now allowed to cool and harden. 6. The casting – This is the final step in the sand casting process. It entails the sand mold being broken away and the casting being left over.
