Superconductor Technologies (SON)
Superconductor Technologies is Advancing its Technologies
Superconductor Technologies (SON) Inc. is a global leader in superconducting innovation. Its Conductus® superconducting wire platform offers high performance, cost-effective and scalable superconducting wire. With 100 times the current carrying capacity of conventional copper and aluminum, superconducting wire offers zero resistance with extreme high current density.
In the second quarter, the organization tried noteworthy advance in endeavors to enhance its Conductus wire’s mechanical quality. In the wake of upgrading HTS wire format handle, the organization accomplished target mechanical properties in testing. Its will probably execute these engineering upgrades on existing creation gear by using its outline that organizes the capacity to scale rapidly and financially.
Its present endeavors are centered around restoring standard basic current utilizing the new layout design. The organization hope to have the framework alterations operational in the final quarter of 2016 and ship wire to key clients presently to finish existing capability orders.
In June, STI and its business accomplice, an industry driving producer of generators and engines, and eminence scholarly accomplices presented a proposition for the US Department of Energy’s (DOE) Funding Opportunity entitled ‘Empowering Technologies for Next Generation Machines.’ The venture’s expressed objectives are to augment vitality effectiveness and increment control thickness for a wide assortment of basic vitality applications.
Its venture addresses the DOE point ‘Superconducting Wire Manufacturing,’ which is in accordance with its clients’ requirement for expanded infield attractive execution and lower cost/higher execution wire. The DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy expressed it arrangements to declare the triumphant recommendations one month from now.
Likewise in the second quarter, STI was granted U.S. Patent No. 9,362,025, entitled “Covered Conductor High Temperature Superconductor Carrying High Critical Current Under Magnetic Field By Intrinsic Pinning Centers, And Methods Of Manufacture Of Same” from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). This patent further ensures the organization’s novel abilities used to enhance the execution of its Conductus® superconducting wire in applications that work within the sight of a high attractive field.
