America Makes Announces Two Project Calls Worth Nearly $12M in Funding

The National Center for Defense Manufacturing and Machining (NCDMM) and America Makes have announced two new open project calls funded by the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense, Research and Engineering Manufacturing Technology Office (OSD (R&E)), and the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) worth a total of $11.75M. This is the largest funding opportunity launched by America Makes since its inception in 2012. Each project call has two areas of focus. One award is anticipated for each topic area with the maximum request for funding varying depending upon the topic being addressed.

2023 Outstanding Technical Papers Awarded

The MPIF Technical Board has critically evaluated and completed its review of the highly qualified manuscripts that were presented at the PowderMet2023 and AMPM2023 conferences in Las Vegas for the prestigious Outstanding Technical Paper Awards.

Another Basic PM Short Course Success!

MPIF recently completed its 59th annual Basic PM Short Course in State College, Pennsylvania, where over 60 attendees were provided an overview of the powder metallurgy (PM) industry, covering a broad introduction to PM history, current practices, and a look at the future of the industry.

PM Magnetic Materials & Testing Seminar

The powder metallurgy industry is transforming, with PM magnetic materials expected to take a key role in the electric vehicle market. There is something fascinating about engines and motors because they power so much of our lives. In the world of electric motors, a new axial flux motor has been making news, and for good reason. It has some interesting benefits that can play a big role in future powertrains. And it is a great opportunity for PM!

This seminar will help expand your knowledge of soft and hard magnets, preparing you for the demands of new materials, such as soft-magnetic alloys and soft magnetic composite (SMC) materials. You will also have hands-on experiences with AC and DC testing of magnetic materials in the laboratory at Magnet-Physics Inc. under the direction of Reinhold Strnat.

Space is limited, so be sure to register today!

University of North Texas R&D to Boost Manufacturing Military Machinery

Herman Shen, chair for UNT’s Department of Mechanical Engineering

New research and development being conducted at the University of North Texas (UNT), Denton, Texas, could have a major impact on future military operations. The research will analyze the Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) additive manufacturing process. The manufacturing will be done with equipment in UNT’s Center for Agile and Adaptive Additive Manufacturing. The research could allow military vessels to produce their own replacement parts that are more reliable and durable.
