New business will commercialize a new additive manufacturing-based system for the terra cotta industry.
ALFRED — In support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s high-tech vision for making New York State a leader in the development of advanced materials and manufacturing processes, Alfred University and its Center for Advanced Ceramic Technology (CACT) are supporting the launch of a new business which will commercialize a new additive manufacturing-based system for the terra cotta industry.
Dr. William Carty, professor of ceramic engineering and the J.F. McMahon Chair in Ceramics at the Inamori School of Engineering at Alfred University, has launched the new firm — Replacement Tiles Solutions — which is located at the IncubatorWorks facility in Alfred. IncubatorWorks — established in 1992 and previously operated as the Ceramics Corridor Innovation Center — is a state of the art incubator offering services and facilities to foster growth of entrepreneurial businesses in ceramics, glass, advanced materials, and related technology-based industries.
