Who We Are

A consortium of industry, academia, and government that recognizes the full spectrum of manufacturing technologies required to obtain precision and fully functional metal additive manufactured part. The consortium is conducting technology roadmapping and finding solutions both within the build envelope and external to it. This team is led by Youngstown State University, North Carolina State University, and the Pennsylvania State University.

Our Objectives

Establish a National Consortium
