NASA Glenn Acquires Robo-Met.3D Unit from UES to Expand Materials Characterization Capabilities

February 28, 2019

We're happy to announce another successful Robo-Met.3D installation! NASA’s Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, OH, accepted the unit. This unit is now the fourth system installed in the State of Ohio.

Peter Bonacuse, the Analytical Science Group Lead at NASA. He looks forward to using the system’s enhanced capabilities. Bonacuse will analyze advanced materials like ceramic matrix composites and additively manufactured components.UES developed Robo-Met.3D from AFRL technologies. Robo-Met automates the metallography and serial sectioning process, giving materials investigators unique insights. This materials characterization system sits in the Analytical Science Group. It will offer users at Glenn new and improved technology to map microstructures in 3D.

This automated system enables efficient and consistent evaluation of complex materials problems. Robo-Met.3D analyzes a high volume of materials at high resolutions. This combination of volume and resolution will provide unique insights to NASA. UES is continuing to extend this technology, investigating integration with more characterization capabilities.
