New Incubator Tenants

June 11, 2012 by MAGNET Ohio

Two new startups recently moved into The Incubator at MAGNET: Motion Resolution and Real Time Imaging. Motion Resolution is working on a new pedal design for high-end cyclists.  Early tests have shown a dramatic increase in efficiency using the new design, so much so that one of the Ride Across America team members has volunteered to test the pedal during the event. Real Time Imaging aims to simplify dental procedures by making them easier, safer and more efficient to perform through an innovative real-time imaging technology via the miniaturization of the medical fluoroscope.  Check out their website for brief overview of their product. I wish both companies the best of luck and look forward to working with them! The Incubator at MAGNET

The Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) is holding its 2012 Annual Conference right here in downtown Cleveland. MAGNET is proud to be one of the co-sponsors of this event. The conference opened on Saturday, June 2 and concluded, Tuesday, June 5, with plant tours to NASA Glenn Research Center and Lincoln Electric.

Free, Deputy Director of NASA GRC. Free shared the many ways that NASA’s mission is continuing as the focus shifts from the Space Shuttle program to deep space exploration. He also highlighted the way NASA is transferring technology to manufacturing applications here on earth. As a prime example of NASA’s terrestrial focus, Free gave a shout out to MAGNET and MAGNET’s President & CEO Dan Berry who was in the audience. That kind acknowledgement came as he presented the names of the nine Northeast Ohio companies that recently each won 40 hours of NASA expert technical consultation through the new Manufacturing Innovation Project sponsored by MAGNET, the City of Cleveland and Cuyahoga County. After Free’s keynote presentation, attendees had a
