NCMS investing in additive manufacturing center in Maryland

Partners of the new center include NCMS founding members 3D Systems and Applied Materials.

The National Center for Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS), a cross-industry technology development consortium dedicated to improving U.S. competitiveness, plans to establish a new additive manufacturing innovation center in Aberdeen, MD.

Partners of the new center include the State of Maryland and Harford County, MD, as well as NCMS founding members 3D Systems and Applied Materials.

“3D Systems is proud to have helped NCMS lead this initiative,” said Neal Orringer, vice president, alliances & partnerships, 3D Systems. “It’s a tremendous opportunity to partner with key government and industry leaders such as Applied Materials to drive innovation and U.S. competitiveness.”

This collaboration between government, industry, and academia will advance and build on breakthrough, non-traditional technologies to enable U.S. manufacturers with large-scale additive manufacturing, speed in part production, novel designs and materials, cuts in cost and delivery times, and point-of-need part manufacturing. The goal is to provide U.S. troops with the most updated platforms and tools available, so they are prepared to face any situation,
