CPMT/Axel Madsen Conference Grants History
Axel Madsen was well-known in the PM industry as a successful entrepreneur. He co-founded Allied Sinterings, Inc., Danbury, CT, in 1959. The company began in a converted diner with four employees and went on to develop a successful niche business producing high-precision, small, and intricate PM parts. Madsen was a creative toolmaker and an expert on high-precision PM parts. He was active in the Powder Metallurgy Parts Association (PMPA) of MPIF and served as a director.
The Axel Madsen Conference Grant Program was established by his family to encourage students to learn more about PM technology and pursue careers in the PM industry. Annually, four students receive full registration to the annual conference and a stipend for travel and lodging.
