For those interested in more information on the Rhode Island Rapid Prototyped
Tooling Consortium and its work, the RI member companies are:

American Industrial Casting
Laser Fare (and their ExpressTool division)
Fielding Manufacturing
Chip Coolers

A significant portion of the R&D will be carried out at the University of
Rhode Island. Please feel free to contact me or any of the member companies
if you are interested in this research project or similar research.

Please be aware of the Rhode Island Rapid Prototyped Tooling Consortium
which this date received a Slater Innovative Partnership Grant in formal
ceremonies at the State House in Providence from the Rhode Island Economic
Policy Council. The goal of the consortium is to establish Rhode Island
companies as the providers of choice of advanced prototyping capability for
industries requiring injection molds. The first objective is to create long
lived diecast tooling in composite P/M and H13 by advanced RP methods within
the year.
