Advanced manufacturing

We’re using our research to improve manufacturing products and processes to build a stronger, more vibrant industrial community. Our expertise in additive manufacturing, medical device manufacturing, and micro/nano-manufacturing is continually strengthened by our interdisciplinary collaborations and industrial partnerships. You'll find us exploring new materials for 3-D metal printing, exploring the latest innovations in micro-machining, or building innovative hands-on medical training tools.
