Angstron Materials LLC has acquired a new 22,000 square foot manufacturing facility.
In addition to continuing its research and development efforts, Angstron will provide small to large batch processing and production capacity for its innovative nano-graphene platelets (NGPs).
Based in Dayton, OH the new facility will enhance Angstron’s ability to offer customers a total turnkey solution from application development and pilot quantities for test articles to scale-up for required production volumes. A cost effective, high quality alternative to nanotubes, Angstron says that NGPs are especially suited to aerospace, automotive, energy, marine, electronics, construction, medical and telecommunications applications.
“The new location gives Angstron the capability to produce tons of pristine NGP material annually,” said Dr. Bor Z. Jang, CEO of Angstron Materials, LLC. “One of the few companies able to manufacture these quantities, the larger facility will allow Angstron to more effectively meet customer requirements.”
Angstron’s engineered NPGs are available in several forms including raw materials and solutions, which according to Angstron can achieve a high loading and maintain uniform dispersion without degrading viscosity.
Boeing has delivered the first of ten 787 Dreamliners to WestJet, marking the start of the airline's global expansion. Having long operated a fleet of Boeing single-aisle jets, WestJet will use the super-efficient, long-range 787-9 Dreamliner to profitably serve new international routes.
One of the most respected and successful names in motorsport is working with lightweighting and materials researchers at the AMRC to advance its processes for manufacturing recyclable composite components that extend useful lifetimes and reduce tooling costs.
The Middlesex production facility of Web Industries’ Aerospace market team has earned accreditation from Nadcap (the National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program) covering the facility’s composite cutting and kitting operations.
