We are excited to announce that TCPoly has been awarded a Phase I grant from the Department of Energy (DOE) Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) program. TCPoly is teaming with researchers at the National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL) to incorporate thermal energy storage in 3D printing.
TCPoly was named one of the Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Georgia by the Technology Association of Georgia. For the award TCPoly CTO Thomas Bougher presented at the TAG Summit in Atlanta, where the company was voted the most innovative by the audience.
We are excited to announce that TCPoly has been awarded a Phase I grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program. The award is for 12 months funding to develop ultra-high thermal conductivity 3D printing filament to rival pure metal parts.
TCPoly CEO Matt Smith presented at the Innov865 startup competition this week in Knoxville, TN. The event was part of Innov865 week promoting Knoxville’s rapidly growing startup community. The other companies competing were Active Energy, EDP Biotech, Reviewbox, SmartRIA, and Winter Innovations.
Matt Smith presented at the IEEE Itherm conference in Las Vegas on research with Oak Ridge collaborators. The research used TCPoly filament to print heat sinks in different orientations and predict the temperature rise when heated. The research paper can be found here.
We are excited to announce a new 3D printing filament available, Ice9 Rigid. We have been working hard to expand our materials and in total we now have three 3D printing filaments available under the thermally conductive Ice9TM brand: Ice9 Flex, Rigid, and E-insulating (electrically insulating). Ice9 Rigid is a Nylon composite based a proprietary filler system including aerospace grade carbon fibers. In addition to the new filament, we have upgraded our existing filaments, details below.
