United Technologies Research Center
United Technologies Research Center (UTRC) is the innovation engine of United Technologies Corporation (UTC), and all of its business units. These business units recognize UTRC as defining what’s next, and ready to solve the toughest problems. Part of UTRC’s mission is collaborating with a network of partners to move the world forward. These include not only UTC’s business units, but government agencies, national laboratories, universities, commercial and aerospace companies and private organizations.
An idea can be solid, the effectiveness and potential is proven, but current manufacturing options and materials make the technology cost prohibitive. An obvious solution is to re-engineer the design, but that comes with risk. Instead of rethinking the design, UTRC is instead rethinking the manufacturing technology. From physics-based modeling of machining processes to development of new approaches for additive manufacturing, UTRC is exploring ways to change today’s approach to manufacturing. This includes direct-write of electronic components, cold spray, capacitive tomography reconstruction, advanced measurement and inspection processes, and the development of algorithms and processes for supply chain and logistic optimization. It also includes contingencies to avoid supply chain disruption, ensuring the right materials are secured from the right producer. From integrating design and verification to material selection, our researchers are supporting UTC business units with faster, more reliable and more cost-effective ways to produce quality components so that new technologies have a chance to make an impact.
