Eliminating Fakes and Mistakes with IP Protection: InfraTrac Named as a Winner in the America Makes 2016 AM Challenge for Small Businesses
Friday, August 26, 2016
Many exciting challenges come and go in the 3D design and 3D printing industry, inspiring both individual makers and startup teams to come forth with incredible new innovations that can offer great value worldwide. The winners usually show great potential and it’s generally just a matter of time before we see them in the limelight again. In this capacity, we’ve become very familiar with America Makes, following recent awardees for project calls and their latest, a $100K 3D printing contest with AMPED.
Currently though, America Makes has been busy announcing the winners of another challenge: America Makes 2016 Additive Manufacturing Challenge for Small Businesses. The competition is sponsored by Penn State University’s Center for Innovative Materials Processing in an effort to take that 3D printing revolution a step further as they both identify and promote new ideas for the industry. Proposals were submitted by the end of late March, and now InfraTrac has been named as one of five final award winners. While we hear of so many amazing new designs and products, it’s easy to see why InfraTrac’s technology was chosen. Both necessary and extremely relevant, their concept may very likely be one that we see in the future being used by many.
