NCD Technologies Nabs an ‘Innovation Oscar’ from R&D Magazine

 

NCD Technologies, a UW-Madison College of Engineering start-up company launched by 2009 materials science PhD graduate Patrick Heaney, has been selected to R&D Magazine’s 100 List for technological excellence. NCD Technologies’ coatings are the result of a state-of-the-art pretreatment process for applying diamond coatings to extremely small tooling. This advanced process adds precision, longevity and efficiency to the tools and the machining operations they support. NCD is currently partnering with Janesville company Performance Microtools to further product development.

The R&D 100 Awards recognize excellence across a wide range of industries, including telecommunications, optics, high-energy physics, materials science, chemistry and biotechnology. Some winners are established Fortune 500 companies and others are federally funded research institutions.
