Synteris receives a $2.7 million grant to develop 3D Printing Ceramics for Power Electronics

Synteris, a producer of materials for additive manufacturing of non-oxide ceramic parts, has received a $2.7 million grant from the US Department of Energy’s (DOE) Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) OPEN 2021 grant program. The program aims to support novel approaches to clean energy challenges.   

The new fund will enable Materic’s subsidiary to develop its 3D printable ceramic packaging for power electronic modules. The company aims to improve their thermal management, power density, performance and lifetime.

Synteris’s technology will substantially improve the design, manufacturability and function of power modules used in electric vehicles, aircraft, plus related applications such as military use, a press release reads.

“Being selected for ARPA-E funding is a great testament to the radically different approach we are taking to 3D printing ceramics,” said Steve Farias, CSO and founder of Synteris. “Our co-founder and inventor of Synteris’s technology, Adam Peters, deserves significant credit for his vision in our product development path.

Many factors played into our ability to obtain this important funding,” said Ken Malone, CEO of Synteris’ parent company, Materic. “We certainly would not have obtained these resources without critical seed funding we received last year from TEDCO’s Maryland Innovation Initiative. Materic’s efforts to build a portfolio of 3D printing technologies also played an important role in fueling Synteris’s growth.”
