Demand for Advance Cerametrics Inc.’s (ACI) energy harvesting technology is growing very rapidly. Strong underlying demand drivers for growth in energy harvesting applications include:
Vibration Control Demand
There is an emerging requirement for smart material that reacts automatically to stop or monitor vibration. In the case of sporting goods, the benefit is better comfort and performance. In industrial applications, ACI’s Active Vibration Control™ offers enhanced structural performance, proactive maintenance, lower noise levels, and extended system life while greatly reducing operating costs.
There are many market segments / application areas requiring better vibration control including:
Advanced Materials Demand Drivers
Advanced materials created with ACI’s proprietary manufacturing process have a range of military, industrial and consumer applications. The ability to create high tech ceramic fibers with a range of chemistries provides a series of unique attributes. Physically, these fibers can offer features such as light weight, flexibility, strength, radio frequency transparency, conductivity, and extreme hardness, plus resistance to very high temp and severe thermal shock. Exciting possible uses for these advanced materials include extremely hard light armor, ultra high speed missile nose cones, ultrasound sensors, super conductors, and bonding agents for human bones.
