The University awarded a contract for research support to Multi-Scale Manufacturing Solutions, LLC, Madison, WI, for an estimated $90,000.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the University requires a vendor that is uniquely qualified to provide research support in the area of laser assisted machining of ceramics, and in particular, the areas of analysis of heat input and laser absorptivity, and in laser selection. This vendor has staff with extensive Ph.D. level research experience in these areas. In addition, the staff has experience in research in laser assisted micro-machining, and will also consult in this area to further research in an additional aspect of this project. The vendor is within a two-hour driving distance of the Elgin, IL site where the work will be performed, aiding in responsiveness.
