Prototolabs Joins MIT's Additive Manufacturing Consortium

Wednesday, December 12, 2018
 

Protolabs, Inc., a Maple Plain, MN-based provider of 3D-printing services, announced that it has become a founding member of MIT’s newly formed Center for Additive and Digital Advanced Production Technologies (ADAPT) — a consortium focused on scaling new manufacturing technology through research, education, actionable insights, and an MIT-based ecosystem that pairs industry and academia. 

Other founding members: Autodesk, General Motors, and Volkswagen, to name a few. Initial efforts of ADAPT include exploratory research projects with faculty and graduate students, and accelerating the establishment of a new, advanced additive manufacturing laboratory at MIT. ADAPT activities also complement MIT’s additive manufacturing (AM) education programs.

 


 


3D-Printing Startup Receives Recgonized for Being a Market Disruptor

Tuesday, December 11, 2018
 
Meld Manufacturing Corp., a Christianburg, VA-based 3D-printing strartup received a Market Disruptor special recognition at the 2018 R&D 100 awards this month in Orlando, FL. Using high forces and friction, the Meld technology heats metal to the point where they flow freely and are able to be combined with one another. At this point the metal behaves much like a thick, viscous liquid, though it remains a solid. It’s said to be the first process that enables the building of 3D parts in the solid state in one step.


Protolabs Joins MIT's Additive Manufacturing Consortium

Monday, December 10, 2018
 
Additive-manufacturing (AM) company Protolabs, Maple Plain, MN, has become a founding member of MIT’s newly formed Center for Additive and Digital Advanced Production Technologies (ADAPT) — a consortium focused on scaling new manufacturing technology through research, education, actionable insights, and an MIT-based ecosystem that pairs industry and academia.
“My hope is that ADAPT will not only evolve additive manufacturing as a viable digital-manufacturing solution for prototyping, but also end-use production. We are thrilled to be a founding member,” says Vicki Holt, president and CEO at Protolabs. Joining Protolabs as founding members of ADAPT are Autodesk, General Motors, and Volkswagen, to name a few.
