UD-CCM wins $5.9M ARPA-e program

UD-CCM research teams have created the “TuFF internal WRAP for Rapid Pipeline Repair” (TuFF iWRAP) program, establishing a novel composite material feedstock and robotic placement process to fabricate stand-alone structural pipe within existing pipelines.

UD-CCM partners with Mikrosam

Great things happening in Automated Composite Manufacturing at the University of Delaware Center for Composite Materials! We’ve selected Mikrosam & their US representative Composite Automation LLC to deliver an integrated ATP machine for automatic placement of dry, thermoset and thermoplastic tape.

TuFF Materials

Researchers at UD’s Center for Composite Materials have created the world’s strongest short fiber composite material that can be stamped into complex shapes, just like sheet metal can be stamped, in less than one minute.

TuFF Material

World’s strongest short fiber composite material for metal replacement achieves aerospace properties, metal-like formability in zero-waste, fiber-to-parts pilot plant.

TuFF Program Review Highly Successful

On June 13, 2017, TuFF partners met with DARPA and other government agencies for a highly successful program review.
The program is on schedule, with significant accomplishments demonstrating meeting/exceeding cost and performance targets of TuFF sheets.
