Trumpf Inc. held a contest in September 2018 to consign three TruPrint 1000 LMF systems to colleges, universities and research institutes in North America. The application process for eligible recipients ran through December 15, 2018 before being considered by a jury of company experts and an industry representative. Drexel University in Pennsylvania, Youngstown State University in Ohio and the University of Michigan were chosen to receive a TruPrint 1000 for one year.

The contest brought in 22 excellent applications from universities around North America. These submissions gave insight into each applicant’s specific research objectives if they were to receive a TruPrint 1000 for their lab. Each proposal was carefully reviewed by a panel of experts: Dr. April Cooke, Applications Engineer, TRUMPF Inc., Dr. David Saint John, Director of Advanced Manufacturing, Linamar Corp., and Dr. Marcus Lau, Industry Manager Research, TRUMPF Laser-und Systemtechnik GmbH.

The winners plan to carry out their intended research objectives. Drexel University will utilize the TruPrint 1000 to further development of biocompatible implants using new titanium and zirconia alloys to improve bone ingrowth and biocompatibility. Youngstown State University will begin development of complex fractal shaped satellite antennas that are volume efficient. The University of Michigan will focus on quality assurance for metallic additive manufacturing through in-situ optical diagnostics.
