RIT houses a wealth of resources that may be accessible by Venture Creations companies.
The following is just a partial list.
Battery Prototyping Center
The Battery Prototyping Center (BPC) at Rochester Institute of Technology focuses on the development of emerging energy storage technologies through a partnership between RIT and NY-BEST Consortium. BPC is made possible by financial support from NYSERDA, Empire State Development, and SoLith. and features a 1000 ft2 dry room. The dry room is split into two rooms with one side containing the pouch cell assembly equipment, and the remaining space is available for other moisture sensitive experiments and future expansion. BPC works closely with the NY-BEST Commercialization Center to ensure quality and reproducibility in the performance of the cells.
The 3,000 square foot Brinkman Machine Tools and Manufacturing Laboratory is a state-of-the-art facility devoted to advanced manufacturing research and education, and includes capabilities in advanced machining, rapid prototyping, direct-write printing of materials, and metrology. Partnerships with top companies have enabled RIT to set a new standard in education and training for students and industry.
