Center for High Temperature Characterization
CACT also works with Alfred University's completed $4 million Center for High Temperature Characterization (CHTC) and is supporting the development of the new $7.75 million Center for Advanced Ceramic Manufacturing (CACME). This new effort is focused on supporting industry's needs to fully develop and commercialize additive manufacturing/printed ceramics and glass, as well as solutions for ceramic machining and surface finishing.
The CHTC was established through a $4 million award from the State of New York. It's mission is to serve as a unique, one-stop resource combining high-end analytical facilities with internationally recognized materials expertise.
The CHTC has comprehensive facilities for observing the behavior of materials and devices exposed to high temperature environments.
Providing a concentration of research and development capabilities for understanding the links between high temperature environments an material performance.
