Anderal Technologies Receives NWIRC Grant
Anderal Technologies has received a grant from Northwest Pennsylvania Industrial Resource Center to assist in the Research & Development of stainless steel stress relief with Anderal’s patented EAM technology. The grant of $2,592 will be utilized for two full time student interns at Penn State – Behrend and additional engineering consultants on the stainless R&D. The award by NWIRC through Susan Hileman, the District Manager for NWIRC, was received last week.
Anderal Technologies is a STEM based venture located in the eCenter seeking to commercialize the Electrically Assisted Manufacturing developed at Penn State in Erie, PA and patented by Penn State, Ford Global Technologies, and Northwestern University. The Korean project conducted by Anderal and Penn State has led to usage of the EAM technology in South Korea by MsAutoTech, the fastest growing auto parts supplier in Korea. Currently, the tech start-up is working with an Erie based company in anticipation of building a machine to stress relieve and flatten stainless steel components and sheets.
