To advance current additive manufacturing (AM) processes and foster innovation through AM research into new processes and design-for-AM best practices that enable widespread adoption of AM
We are eager to partner with researchers, educators, and industrial partners who seek to:
- Explore the use of industrial-quality AM processes to fabricate parts of interest to them. We have in-house expertise to help with technology selection, design (or re-design) to suit a particular AM process, and fabrication and finishing of parts.
- Push the boundaries of industrial-quality AM into new materials, new design capabilities, and new levels of quality control and predictability. We have in-house expertise and equipment for process and part metrology and control, advanced design for AM, and materials development.
- Innovate entirely new AM processes. We have a suite of in-house experimental testbeds that enable aerosol deposition, reactive extrusion of thermoset polymers, micro-sintering of metals, AM of polymer composites, and many other capabilities. We are experts at process innovation.
