Non-Destructive Testing and Digital Manufacturing

The Sikorsky Entrepreneurial Challenge: Digital Manufacturing Guidelines

Background: Complex precision parts are created from expensive raw materials, increasing the cost of scrap and rework. Early detection, even anticipation, of machining distortion or manufacturing errors could lead to zero scrap parts and significant cost reductions.

The Requirement: Digital manufacturing tools and technologies, materials, increasing the cost of scrap and rework. Early detection, even anticipation, of machining distortion or manufacturing errors could lead to zero scrap parts and significant cost reductions, including simulation, detection, corrective algorithms, and trend recognition, are sought as part of this envisioned solution to improve quality control in the production of precision parts.


Do you have a solution in the arena of Real Time Defect Detection in Digital/Precision Manufacturing?  If you do, you should consider applying for the 7th Sikorsky Entrepreneurial Challenge.
