Rensselaer mechanical engineers win first place at ASME student manufacturing design competition

h and development. The fact that Jaron and Casey placed first and two other student groups were finalists in this competition is evidence that Rensselaer runs a world-class manufacturing program," said Walczyk. "I believe that Rensselaer faculty and students will continue to play a leading role in demonstrating U.S. manufacturing excellence and helping prevent further erosion of manufacturing jobs, especially in the advanced composites arena."

At this year's ASME Student Manufacturing Design Competition, three of the nine finalists were from Rensselaer. Along with the team of Hoffman and Kuppers, Rensselaer mechanical engineering senior Kyle Mattson presented his manufacturing design, "Puckman Tape Dispenser," and mechanical engineering graduate student David Guglielmo presented his project, "Athletic Tape Cutter and Cleat Wrench."

In 2009, a team consisting of Rensselaer mechanical engineering doctoral students Christina Laskowski and Todd Snelson, along with mechanical engineering senior Saadia Safir, won first place at the Student Manufacturing Design Competition for their "Sustain-a-Pet" project. The winning entry was for a new design and process to make cute, fully recyclable teddy bears out of fleece sourced from recycled PET plastic and assembled using ultrasonic welding in place of thread and glue.

A year earlier, in 2008, a team of Rensselaer students took second place in the ASME Student Manufacturing Competition for their method to produce and assemble rocket-shaped candy dispensers. Additionally, in 2007 another Rensselaer team on which Hoffman was a memberplaced second for their method to produce small crystal replicas of the then-uncompleted Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC).

Many of these projects resulted from assignments from the School of Engineering course Advanced Manufacturing Lab (AML). As part of the class, teams of students are given conceptual product designs from the
