America Makes announces winners of MAGMA project call

March 3, 2022

America Makes, Youngstown, Ohio, USA, has announced that a team led by Boeing, including RPM Innovations, has been selected to receive the funding resulting from the Maturation of Additive Geometric Management Approaches for High Mach Applications (MAGMA) project call, subject to the finalisation of all contractual details and requirements.

The MAGMA project totals $500,000 in funding from the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), Materials and Manufacturing Directorate, Manufacturing and Industrial Base Technology Division, to further advance the maturation of Additive Manufacturing technologies for high-Mach applications.

“We are so pleased by the support of our membership to advance the supply chains understanding of AM technologies for a variety of high-Mach applications,” stated Brandon D Ribic, PhD, America Makes Technology Director. “These efforts will serve to benefit the manufacturing of a wide variety of products which feature complex geometric features. It is anticipated important lessons learned from these efforts will help to improve yield of complex structures incorporating AM components.”

The topic for MAGMA was Production of Acceptable Relevant Product Geometries, announced on October 19, 2021. MAGMA is a part of the statement of work for Hypersonics Enabling Additive Manufacturing, which is being led by America Makes.
