Siemens Opens New Collaboration Hub, Partners With ORNLJune 10, 2022
Siemens announced that it has engaged in early-stage R&D projects with multiple partners including the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Manufacturing Demonstration Facility (MDF) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Collaboration between Siemens and ORNL on multiple DOE-funded projects has enabled the cooperative investigation of multiple methods of advanced manufacturing—including additive manufacturing (AM)—and materials solutions, according to Siemens officials.In addition, Siemens recently opened its new Charlotte Advanced Technology Collaboration Hub (CATCH) in Charlotte, NC. This new strategic research and development hub, spearheaded by Siemens Digital Industries, Siemens Technology and Siemens Energy, will enable Siemens to collaborate with key machine builders, end users and U.S. national laboratories to assist in successful industrialization of AM.
“The joint collaborative research done at MDF to address industrial problems demonstrates the success of the DOE’s MDF model and clearly shows the need for a path to industrialization through similar hubs in industry focusing on higher technology readiness levels,” says Dr. Anand Kulkarni, senior principal key expert at Siemens Technology. “Siemens launched CATCH to fill this void.”
CATCH becomes one of seven Siemens hubs strategically placed at major AM ecosystems worldwide.
