Ford Becomes Licensee
November 1, 2002 - Ford Licenses Technology from Mickowski.
Ford Motor Company, Dearborn, Michigan, and Mr. John R. Mickowski, President
and CEO of Tymac Process Automation LLC, Franklin, New Jersey, have reached a
licensing agreement whereby Ford may use the technology of certain of
Mickowski's process monitoring and analyzing patents in its Rawsonville and
Ford joins several other firms in obtaining licenses to Mickowski's basic
patents, which are used worldwide in high pressure diecasting and other
operations. The technology is used to significantly improve quality and to
simultaneously decrease scrap rates, material and energy costs.
In 1998, Mr. Mickowski was named an Inventor of the Year by the New Jersey
Inventors Hall of Fame in recognition of the economic contributions made by
the licensed invention to cost reductions and scrap rate reduction realized
by automobile companies and other firms. In 1998, since the commercialization
of the invention by Tymac, the economic benefits it generated were estimated
to exceed $1 billion. The New Jersey Inventors Congress and Hall of Fame was
founded to recognize and honor New Jersey inventors and the role of invention
in New Jersey economic development.
