A Fall’23 Capstone student team recently visited Norsk Titanium (Plattsburgh, NY), a pioneer in metal additive manufactured titanium parts. The mechanical and materials Engineering students benefited from viewing the operations firsthand. Thank you to Norsk Titanium for sponsoring a Capstone design challenge, and for hosting the visit.
Proud of RPI students over the years who have designed tooling to help NABA employees with this work. Design Lab projects have included tooling to turn the neck tabs right-side-out after sewing, a fixture to help blind and visually impaired workers sew pockets onto safety vests, an improved shop layout to increase efficiency, among others.
Do you have a ‘Why Not Change the World’ idea but no way to move forward? Consider engaging a multidisciplinary Capstone student design team to assist.
A partnership between K&A Engineering Consulting, P.C. in White Plains, New York and the Rensselaer Design Lab charged students with the task of applying neural networks to electrical substations to help avoid future failures to the nation's power grid.
