Award List:

SBIR Phase II: Micro-quantity Internal Cooling (MQuIC) of Cutting Tools for Increased Productivity via Micro-ducts

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: William J. Endres, PhD
Award Amount: $499,951.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II research aims to develop and commercialize cutting tools with internal micro-geometric features to provide relatively direct and localized cooling of the tool-chip contact zone. The proposed innovation is (i) incorporation of micro-scale… More

SBIR Phase I: Cost- and Energy-Efficient Conversion of Cellulosic Biomass to Bio-Fuel Feedstock of Consistent and Preferred Geometry

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: William J. Endres, PhD
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project develops a new cutting attachment for chipping/grinding/chopping of cellulosic biomass to yield feedstock for production of cellulosic ethanol. With increasing energy/diesel prices, power consumption in chipping/grinding/chopping is of… More

SBIR Phase I:Effectively-Thick Coating of High-Wear Surfaces with Application to Cutting Tools

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: William J. Endres, PhD
Award Amount: $170,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to develop an effectively-thick coating (ETC) technology for machine tool applications. This technology will provide an effective thickness that is 5-20 times thicker than that of traditional coating while abating delamination… More

SBIR Phase II:Cost- and Energy-Efficient Conversion of Cellulosic Biomass to Bio-Fuel Feedstock of Consistent and Preferred Geometry

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: William J. Endres
Award Amount: $484,965.00
Abstract:
This SBIR Phase II project will develop and commercialize a new energy efficient long-lifed cutting attachment for chipping cellulosic biomass into bio-fuel feedstock while achieving reduced specific energy, significantly longer knife-change intervals, and controllably-fine chips needed by various… More
