AMM receives $1.8 million DoD award from NSIC to advance CMF technology

RALEIGH, North Carolina–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Advanced Materials Manufacturing (AMM) is pleased to announce the receipt of an award of $1,885,000 from the National Security Innovation Capital (NSIC). The funds will be used to accelerate the engineering and manufacturing of composite metal foam (CMF) to meet emerging defense and commercial applications.

CMF is a class of high-performance, finely tunable, and lightweight metallic materials that was developed at North Carolina State University by its inventor, Afsaneh Rabiei, over the past two decades. Rabiei holds four patents on CMF, which are currently proprietary technology owned by AMM. CMF can be made from any metal, alloy or combination. Processed by a casting or powder metallurgy technique, this material comprises a homogeneous mixture of air-filled hollow metallic spheres surrounded by a metallic matrix. A 100% steel CMF bar will weigh the same as a solid aluminum bar of equal size. CMF technology provides lightweight materials that can save energy, the planet and human life.
