Danbury-based Praxair will be offering in-kind grants to some universities in the form of material and engineering assistance to support metal 3D printing courses and projects. The process uses design data to create 3D objects by building up layers of material.
The grants will provide metal powder, which is designed specifically for additive manufacturing applications. Material testing and consultation from Praxair’s team will also be provided.
Grant applications will be accepted through December 31st, and winners will be notified by February 28th.
Praxair Surface Technologies currently supplies cobalt, copper, iron, nickel and titanium based alloys and also offers the associated industrial gases to the additive manufacturing industry.
