Auburn the Latest University to Direct its Attention to Metal AM

February 10, 2017

Auburn University, in the state that reportedly has more installed AM capacity than any other (Alabama), has established a new Center for Industrialized Additive Manufacturing and selected mechanical engineering professor Tony Overfelt as its inaugural director. Overfelt has been awarded a $1.5 million grant from the National Institute of Standards and Technology to study AM.

The university also has purchased new 3D-printing equipment on par with that used at the Auburn-based GE Aviation plant, one of the pioneers in implementing industrialized AM.
