NCMS Subsidiary Releases AlMMC Roadmap
The Technologies Research Corp. (TRC), representing the Aluminum Metal Matrix Composites (AlMMC) Consortium, released a study document that identifies opportunities for future development of AlMMC technology for a broad range of industrial markets and applications. The roadmap is the result of a three-year collaborative research effort and was prepared by TRC, a subsidiary of the National Center for Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS). With the release of this roadmap and emphasis on continued development of low-cost processing methods, manufacturers will be able to evaluate AlMMCs as replacements for current materials. This examination of the critical requirements for technological progress and potential expansion of AlMMC applications is available online, free of charge, at www.almmc.com.
