With a broad mission to advance and deploy AM technology of metallic and advanced material systems to industry, CIMP-3D seeks to advance enabling technologies required to successfully implement AM technology for critical components and structures, provide technical assistance to industry through selection, demonstration, and validation of AM technology as an “honest broker”, and promote the potential of AM technology through training, education and dissemination of information.
To address the multidisciplinary needs for advancing AM technology, CIMP-3D acts as a catalyst for engaging broad faculty collaboration that enables pooling of resources to create an exceptional research capability. The Center includes three complimentary components designed to accomplish this mission:
An exceptional technical team having comprehensive knowledge in all facets of AM
A state-of-the-art development and demonstration facility encompassing all necessary capabilities for analysis, simulation, manufacturing, and characterization
A network of Center Associates providing a broad perspective of all aspects of AM technology
CIMP-3D has built a reputation as a national resource for AM technology advancement. CIMP-3D serves as the additive manufacturing demonstration facility for the DoD under DARPA’s Open Manufacturing program, is a founding member of America Makes, and is an integral partner of the Penn State Applied Research Laboratory’s Institute for Manufacturing and Sustainment Technologies (iMAST), which is a U.S. Navy Manufacturing Technology Center of Excellence.
