NSF and CPMT Conference Grants Announced

The National Science Foundation (NSF) and Center for Powder Metallurgy Technology (CPMT) / Axel Madsen Conference Grants provide students with the opportunity to participate and exchange ideas with leading researchers and engineers from worldwide industry and governmental facilities, as well as the students and faculty from both domestic and international universities. The 45 recipients attend the full conference, giving them the chance to learn the latest research areas and results in powder metallurgy fields of interest. These opportunities will not only improve the students’ knowledge in the field, but also develop scientists and engineers who are ideally suited to create the next generation of designs in powder metallurgy and metal additive manufacturing that will push materials and manufacturing capabilities. We estimate that over one-third of the past recipients, those that are not still students, are working in fields connected to PM.

APMI Members Benefit – Talk ‘N Technology

Talk 'N Technology presentations are provided by student grant recipients at the annual PowderMet and AMPM conferences. To further advance the excellent research & development by the grant recipients and their universities, APMI will provide the students’ presentations and posters to its members as a benefit. 

This APMI “Members Only” benefit is located on the APMI site and is open only to APMI members. Login at www.apmiinternational.org and then enter the APMI Member Portal.

Pittsburgh’s Neighborhood 91 and Metal Additive Manufacturing

Innovation, technological advancement, location, and workforce made Pittsburgh the "Steel City" in the late 1800s. Today, steel mills no longer smog the skies, but new advancements in metal fabrication are revitalizing this integral part of the city's identity. Neighborhood 91, a project on 10 acres of Pittsburgh International Airport's Innovation Campus, with room to occupy 185 more acres, has brought together six companies developing and producing metal 3D printed parts. The goal is to expand to 30 or 40 companies establishing this stretch of Pittsburgh as a global hub of 3D-printed metal components.
