APMI International has announced that the winner of the 2023 Fellow Award is Christopher T Schade, vice president of Advanced Materials, Hoeganaes Corporation. This award will be presented during the Opening General Session at PowderMet2023, scheduled to take place June 18-21 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Schade’s experience is a combination of manufacturing, research, and education. He manages an additive and specialty powder manufacturing facility and performs research into alloy and lubricant development in addition to being an instructor at Drexel University, teaching both metallurgy and PM classes.

His work in alloy and lubricant development has expanded the catalogue of materials now manufactured and available in the PM and Additive Manufacturing industries; some of these activities resulted in having several patents issued. His research extends into using the powder in an application, collaborating with parts makers to create a process for successful part manufacture.

In 2021, Schade received the Outstanding Adjunct Faculty Award and is a long-time contributor to the technical programmes of PM – and now AM – conferences. He was the co-chairman of the fledgling AMPM2017 Conference and has received the Howard I Sanderow Outstanding Technical Paper Award three times, the Metal Additive Manufacturing Outstanding Technical Paper twice, and has been a member of the winning APMI Metallography Competition team four times. Schade received the MPIF Distinguished Service to Powder Metallurgy Award in 2019.

Established in 1998, the Fellow Award recognises APMI members for their significant contributions to the society and high level of expertise in the technology of powder metallurgy, practice, or business of the PM industry. Fellows are elected through their professional, technical, & scientific achievements; continuing professional growth & development; mentoring/outreach; and contributions to APMI International committees.
