ExLattice, Inc, a manufacturing AI company, has received a Phase I award from the National Science Foundation (NSF) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program for developing its accelerated simulation engine dedicated to additive manufacturing.
The Phase I SBIR grant, valued at over $250,000, will be used to develop and validate ultrafast manufacturing simulation solutions in collaboration with multiple universities. The goal is to cut the time-consuming steps in computation and deliver real-time engineering solutions for users to understand, control and improve additive manufacturing systems and outcomes.
“Receiving the SBIR award from NSF is another proof of our vision in engineering software for digital manufacturing,” says Dr. Runze Huang, CEO, ExLattice. “The NSF SBIR grant not only provides us the resources, but a platform to collaborate with leading experts in academia and great business partners in bringing AI to manufacturing.”
