Award List:

SBIR Phase I: Ultrahigh-Pressure Flash Abrasive-Waterjets for Presicion Machining

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,862.00
Agency:
NSF
Principal Investigator:
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop ultrahigh-pressure (UHP) flash abrasive waterjets (FAWJs) to mitigate limitations of non-flashing AWJs on precision machining. AWJs, a cold process and largely material independent, are superior to other tools for drilling… More

Next-Generation Waterjet Technology for High-Speed Precision Machining of SiC Ceramic Matrix Composites

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2006 / STTR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$69,950.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator:
Peter H. Liu, Sr. Scientist
Research Institution:
CARNEGIE INSTITUTION OF WASHINGTON
RI Contact:
Gary Kowalczyk
Abstract:
A next-generation wataerjet technology will be developed for low-cost, high-speed, and precision machining of silicon carbide ceramic matrix composites (SiC CMCs). The new process will have cutting power equivalent to that of a conventional abrasive-waterjet (AWJ) operating at 1500 MPa while… More

SBIR Phase II: Ultrahigh-Pressure Flash Abrasive-Waterjets for Precision Machining

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2006 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$499,547.00
Agency:
NSF
Principal Investigator:
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will develop and optimize a flash abrasive-waterjet for precision machining of delicate materials. The use of water in a phase change mode will offer advantages over abrasive waterjets, that can damage delicate materials, and liquid… More

Low-Cost Automated Manufacturing of Hydrogen Production Components with Multi-Nozzle Abrasive-Waterjets

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,677.00
Agency:
DOE
Principal Investigator:
Abstract:
Stamping and photochemical machining have been two of common methods for manufacturing multiple flow channels in hydrogen reformers, heat exchangers, and fuel-cell stacks. These methods are too costly to help meet DoE's targeted untaxed price of $2.00-3.00/gge. This project will develop a… More

Development of Subminiature Abrasive-Waterjet Nozzles toward Micromachining

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$169,774.00
Agency:
NSF
Principal Investigator:
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I seeks to develop a micro-abrasive-waterjet nozzle for machining features between 50 to 100 micrometers. The project is extremely challenging because abrasive waterjet (AWJ) machining involves an ultrahigh-speed, 3-phase flow engaging in complex… More

SBIR Phase II: Development of Subminiature Abrasive-Waterjet Nozzles toward Micromachining

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$425,679.00
Agency:
NSF
Principal Investigator:
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase II project aims to develop micro abrasive-waterjet technology for automated machining features between 50 to 100 micrometers. The challenge lies in the development of nozzles with beam diameters less than 100 micrometers. Several issues must be… More

Effective Processes to Manufacture Advanced Combustion Liners with Shaped Film Cooling Holes for Gas Turbine Engines

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,898.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator:
Peter Liu, Sr. Scientist – (253) 872-2300
Abstract:
OMAX proposes to develop an abrasive-waterjet (AWJ) system for drilling angled shaped holes in TBC-coated metals and engine components. Waterjet technology has technological and manufacturing merits that are unmatchable by many existing machine tools. In particular, OMAX will take advantage of… More
