Praxair, Inc. has announced the recipients of its TruForm™ AMbition Grant, launched in November 2017 by its Surface Technologies business to offer a limited number of in-kind grants to select North American universities involved in metal Additive Manufacturing.

PST supplies a full line of cobalt, copper, iron, nickel and titanium-based alloy metal powders for AM. The grant recipients will receive a shipment of the company’s TruForm gas atomised metal powder, along with engineering support from the company for Additive Manufacturing projects.

Andy Shives, Business Manager for Additive Manufacturing at PST, commented, “Today we are pleased to announce the winners of the TruForm AMbition Grant. There were so many excellent applicants, we’re thrilled to announce more than five recipients.”

The following universities were selected:

  • Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis
  • University of Dayton
  • University of Louisville
  • University of Pittsburgh
  • Pennsylvania State University
  • Oklahoma State University-Stillwater

The winning projects involve various AM technologies, including Laser Powder Bed Fusion, Directed Energy Deposition and binder jetting for AM. PST will partner with AM programmes at these universities to assist in the analysis of microstructure effects, and to improve process parameters and part properties using its wide portfolio of metal alloys.

“As the academic community continues to embrace this emerging technology, PST is committed to supporting the next generation of engineers,” Shives concluded.
