Web-based tools that work
Fully developed, deployed and working web-based tools for R&D, intellectual assets, safety and crisis management are available from Air Products. These tools were developed by Air Products' IT professionals. They are proven tools that are capturing new ideas, helping to manage R&D projects, the patent application process, resources, laboratory safety and crisis events. Individual tools or the entire suite can be acquired. The offering includes source code and documentation.

Nanotechnology copper metal ink for semiconductor manufacturing
Substituting nanoparticle-based copper metal inks for vacuum deposition lower manufacturing costs and to higher chip yield per wafer. The benefits of this technology are that it allows fine feature details to be better defined and provides the ability to meet more demanding fabrication control. Combined with the move to copper interconnect as a replacement for aluminum, a simple coating technique greatly helps to increase yield and improve product quality. Fully developed and operational.

Nanotechnology solder ink for circuit board manufacturing
Solder ink is used as a replacement for the hot air solder leveling (HASL) process. The particle technology has the potential to eliminate environmental pollutants and can significantly reduce both material and process costs. A simplified circuit pattern production method developed by the provider is used to deposit nanoscale metal particles accurately in a complex pattern onto a ceramic substrate. This process involves just 18 steps, compared to more than 100 in a standard manufacturing process. The nanotechnology process is fully developed and operational.

Nanotechnology lead-free solder paste
The particle technology can eliminate the problem of solder balls. It provides an ideal solution both for current applications and for the new class of components having a high number of closely spaced leads with consequent requirements for solder pastes with an extremely high printing resolution. The nanotechnology process is fully developed and operational. Samples have been produced and successfully evaluated by potential customers.

Non-contact rotary seal technology
Honeywell has developed a low cost, state-of the-art, noncontact fluid seal or oil seal that eliminates output shaft seal leakage and maintains optimum lubrication at very high rotational speeds. The creative design replaces carbon face and lip seal technology. There are no contacting surfaces between the rotor and housing. The proven design includes a slinger rotor mounted within the bearing housing and dynamic air-oil separators for centrifugal pumping of oil away from the shaft passage. During shaft rotation, oil and air are pumped by centrifugal action away from the shaft-to-housing interface. Successfully commercialized on Airbus and Boeing starter systems.

Autonomy systems for unmanned equipment
These set of techniques are general methods for developing automated moving equipment that might be used for automated earthmoving or farming applications. They include ways of organizing and programming the computers to allow three different modes of operation: manual, automatic and remote control operation. There are also important ways of providing smooth, safe and orderly transition between these modes of operation, and some effective techniques to provide remote control of these machines that ensures that the machines operate in a predictable and desired manner. Developed and demonstrated in prototype.

Cost-effective, overload-proof torque measurement system
This torque measurement system is highly sensitive and inherently overload-proof. It comprises two reflection light barriers the concave mirrors of which are axially spaced on the shaft being monitored and revolve with the latter. An excellent resolution is achieved by using laser diodes as light sources and photo diodes as detectors. The torque acting on the shaft results in an azimuthal displacement of the mirrors with respect to each other and such generates a time interval between the two optical signals from which the torsion of the shaft is determined. Can be used to temps as high as 700 degrees C. Developed to prototype, and tested.

Buckling analysis program for telescopic cylinders
The program provides easy solutions for the evaluation of bucking safety of hydraulic cylinders under compressive axial load and lateral load. Closed form solutions of the buckling safety factor are not available for the assembly of the rod under compressive loads, and the cylinders which does not carry the compressive load. A numerical solution process is done automatically in the program and the calculated buckling safety factor and the buckling mode are provided. Because the program adopts GUI(Graphic User Interface), the strength data of material and the geometry is input easily. It allows users to examine the effect of changes of design parameters in a simple way.

Self-dispensing adhesive tape
An easy-peeling and safe-dispensing tape roll for packing and sealing does away with noisy and dangerous dispensers. This technology provides a tape roll that is coated with a layer of a release agent on the back side, opposite to the adhesive-coated side, so as to permit the tape to be peeled off with ease. This reduces noise. Lines of pre-punched holes placed intermittently along the tape makes for easy tearing without using a cutting blade.

Apparatus displays a 3D image
This technology is an imaging system for the generation of an apparent three-dimensional (3-D) image suspended in space for direct viewing. It includes a beam splitter and a retro reflector. The optical property of reflecting light back along its original path enables the system to generate an apparent 3-D image based on the perception of depth cues present in the original scene for viewing.
