Additive Manufacturing Technology Development and Transition

AM produced part

Driving AM Technologies into the Real World

UDRI’S Additive Manufacturing researchers develop and transition advanced manufacturing techniques and processes to production. Using standardized tools, processes, and equipment, we address the challenges of AM including reverse engineering, design and qualification for AM, process validation and facility deployment, materials, and cybersecurity.

Through our efforts, we are leading the way to improve warfighter readiness through the use of additive manufacturing and cold spray technologies and creating a solid foundation to address part shortages, supply chain gaps, and diminishing manufacturing sources in order to “print on demand anytime, anywhere.”
