The Ohio Edison Center Technology award was recently given to Ultra Tech Machinery, Inc. The event took place at the Ohio State House in Columbus, OH, on February 8, 2012, before a group of state representatives.
Ultra Tech was nominated for the award for a specialty machine the company built for EWI of Columbus, OH. The machine was a special purpose 3-axis milling machine for material removal combined with a 5-axis ultrasonic tape feeding head designed for adding material. This unique process allows for efficient creation of internal channels and/or cavities in difficult material types. Ultra Tech founder and President Don Hagarty and Director of Sales Willie Eichele were present to accept the award for Ultra Tech Machinery.
The design of the machine was accomplished in close collaboration with EWI Senior Project Manager Mark Norfolk and his team at EWI.
Kimberly Gibson, Director, EWI Energy Center, said, "The technology developed in conjunction with Ultra Tech Machinery has the potential to revolutionize the material additive industry. We were thrilled to receive vital state funding that allowed us to move forward on this important project and contract with an innovative company like Ultra Tech Machinery."
Norfolk said, "We are already selling this technology to manufacturing customers, and if things go as planned, we hope to be ordering additional machines from Ultra Tech in the near future."
