Nitinol Commercialization Accelerator

 

Nitinol commercialization accelerator (NCA) has been organized through a $10 million investment by the State of Ohio Wright Project Center, the Cleveland Clinic, NASA Glenn Research Center, Norman Noble Inc., the University of Toledo, and Case Western Reserve University. The Nitinol commercialization accelerator is dedicated to the development and commercialization of Nitinol products, and will be located at facilities such as Case Institute of Technology, the Cleveland Clinic, and the University of Toledo.

NCA

The center houses the capital equipment needed to overcome the particular challenges that face Nitinol product designers in all phases of commercialization, thereby giving Ohio a competitive advantage in this growing market. The collaborators in the NCA represent some the nation's best expertise in the areas relative to Nitinol product innovation - Nitinol alloy development, Nitinol device fabrication, medical device design, aerospace, and materials science. Utilizing the new equipment purchased, NCA scientists and engineers pool their talent and resources in a comprehensive, proactive, and focused approach to Nitinol design that should bring new alloys and new products to market within the next few years.
