Ford Motor Company announced recently that it is using one of the most advanced laboratory devices in North America to accelerate its nanotechnology research into lighter-weight metals and plastics with greater strength, ultimately helping improve the safety and fuel economy of Ford cars and trucks.
The device, called the Local Electrode Atom Probe (LEAP), is housed at Northwestern University and is now one of only four such tools in North America. This new laboratory tool enables Ford to cut in half the amount of time it takes to analyze the molecular makeup of metals and plastics and determine ways to tailor the material to make lighter-weight and more durable parts.
