2021 Annual Meeting

We would like to thank all of those who attended and we hope that we can be back as an in-person event next year. Thank you Silatronix, Microscopy Innovations, Persis Metallurgical Technologies, Platypus, and Amcor for participating in our Member Company Showcase. One of the goals of this meeting is to promote networking and, while the virtual format is not ideal, these excellent presentations gave us a brief look into your companies.

Collaborative Research Project Tackles Interesting Questions While Putting Graduate Student’s Project Management Skills to Work

Working together, University of Wisconsin graduate student, Sachin Muley, and engineers from NCD Technologies have determined optimal recipes for a carbon coating for an industrial application while also furthering research in this area. The 10-month project set out to understand and optimize mechanical properties in amorphous carbon coatings that NCD uses for industrial applications. A paper based on this research is currently in development.
