Judging for the 2018 Powder Metallurgy (PM) Design Excellence Awards was recently completed at the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) headquarters. Every year since 1965, MPIF has sponsored the PM Design Excellence Awards, an awards competition in which parts fabricators from among MPIF’s member companies are invited to submit components that epitomize the possibilities inherent in powder metallurgy forming processes.
Chad Spore, staff engineer, Enterprise Materials Engineering, John Deere Waterloo Works Drivetrain Operations, Waterloo, Iowa, has been selected to receive the Vanguard Award from the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF). The award recognizes powder metallurgy (PM) industry champions from the end-user community whose long-time promotion of the technology has contributed to the expansion of powder metal applications. Spore is only the second person to receive the award since its inception in 2014.
