Center for Innovative Sintered Products

Fundamental and Applied R&D in Sintered Materials

Student making parts with the press

Research and Development

The Center has focused on using research as an educational tool to involve students in contemporary problems associated with sintered materials. CISP research includes long– and short–term projects. The portfolio is divided into two groups—those projects shared by all the members (precompetitive projects) and those where release of the results is controlled by the specific sponsors (proprietary projects).

Areas of emphasis:

  • Powder Characterization
  • Lubricant and Binder Selection in Powder Processing
  • Sintering Process Development
  • Tailored and Functionally Designed Hard Materials
  • Rapid Fabrication of Prototype Components and Tooling
  • Microminiature Device Fabrication
  • Biomedical Devices
