Evanston, IL – August 18, 2022 – QuesTek Innovations, the primary operating subsidiary of QuesTek International LLC, announced today that it won the AM Bench (Additive Manufacturing Benchmark Test Series) 2022 1st Place award, further demonstrating the company’s leadership in Additive Manufacturing processes and applications, and Materials by Design® technology.

Sponsored by The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS) and judged by members of National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the AM Benchmark Test Series is tasked with selecting benchmark measurements that are both feasible and have the highest impact on the AM community. QuesTek was recognized for achieving best modeling results predicting macroscale tensile behavior of as-built IN625 specimens at different orientations. Dr. Abhinav Saboo, a member of QuesTek’s winning team received the award in person at the AM Bench Conference that was held in Maryland this week.

According to QuesTek COO Bill Mahoney, “This award is yet another example of our established position on the leading edge of applying ICME capabilities to Additive Manufacturing materials processes and applications. It’s important to note that the team of QuesTek employees which received this award was not only comprised of our Chief Technology Officer, two Senior Materials Design Engineers, and a Software Engineer, but also one of our interns—our highly competitive and exclusive internship program is regarded as one of the leading talent development resources in the materials science field.”

QuesTek holds 13 US Patents for ICMD® advanced alloys, and 5 US Patents for ICMD® advanced alloys specifically for Additive Manufacturing, with 4 pending. The Company currently holds 14 US Patents pending for additional novel materials. QuesTek’s growth rate is being driven by current key industry and application dynamics, such as additive manufacturing, sustainability, and digital transformation. These trends are creating an increased demand for proven Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) technologies and capabilities, fostering a “democratization of ICME” across the intersection of computer-aided design and engineering and advanced materials markets.
