"nanoMAG" is a Magnesium alloy with a high strength to weight ratio, high fatigue strength, high impact energy, and enhanced damping and noise reduction. CPM has partnered with the makers of nanoMAG in an attempt to develop alpine skis and composite hockey sticks with increased vibration damping properties when compared to current industry leaders. Being on this team involves improving the performance of hockey stick blades using a strong but lightweight magnesium alloy. Our team works on FEA simulations, vibration damping tests, manufacturing, and consumer testing on our project.
I'm Bryant Rowe and I'm a 4th year Mechanical Engineer major. I'm the team lead for nanoMAG this semester and I'm also involved with the Michigan Tech Club Basketball Team.
