Oberg Industries, a provider of precision components and tooling products, is partnering with the University of Pittsburgh’s Swanson School of Engineering to research solutions to problems in additive manufacturing, the company announced in a Sept. 8 press release.

“This collaboration will link Pitt researchers in engineering, especially biomedical and aerospace, with Oberg’s remarkable fabrication expertise in medical, aerospace, energy, and industrial protection,” said Mark Redfern, vice provost for research at Pitt, in the release. “We look forward to wider engagement of faculty experts and students through the collaboration and with Oberg.”

Participating in research with Pitt’s ANSYS Additive Manufacturing Research Laboratory (AMRL), the company will draw on its experience in manufacturing tooling and prevision machined or stamped metal components to help shape innovative approaches to additive manufacturing issues.

“The industry is rapidly changing as the technology advances, and customers are increasingly viewing Oberg as a partner to capture the advantages,” David L. Bonvenuto, president and chief executive officer of Oberg said in the release. “Through this partnership we’re connecting our customers to Pitt’s expertise in additive manufacturing and a state-of-the-art additive research facility. Together we ask better questions, we discover and learn more, which ultimately advances Oberg’s value to its customers in this new era of additive manufacturing.”

Pitt’s Swanson School has received more than $6 million in grants since 2014 to research additive manufacturing.
