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.
