Patents and other Intellectual properties

In-situ synthesis, densification and shaping of non-oxide ceramics by vacuum additive manufacturing technologies. National and international patent

Priority number(s): 102018000006916



This invention represents a competitive alternative to the complex and expensive technologies presently used to densify non-oxide ceramics. Exploiting vacuum additive manufacturing technologies through a single-step process this technology enable the synthesis, the controlled densification and the shaping of non-oxide materials, in porous as well as fully dense ceramic components, with a tailored nano-micro-macrostructure;

A method of fabricating aluminium matrix composite by pressureless infiltration. National and international patent

View it on Knowledge Share

Priority number(s): 2013IT-TO00531



The proposed system concerns the production of aluminium matrix composites by infiltration, without the need to apply external pressure. The method has a great potential for different industrial applications because of its simplicity, the low cost and the possibility of obtaining end-products or semi-finished parts, with the desired size and shape, using a minimum number of mechanical processes.
