YOUNGSTOWN, OHIO – Industrial 3D Printer OEM JuggerBot 3D announced on February 22, 2024 that it has been awarded $4 million to produce a Large Format Hybrid Material Additive Manufacturing (AM) system.

The project, funded by the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense, Research and Engineering Manufacturing Technology (OSD(R&E)) and awarded by the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) aims to drive technologies that will radically lower the cost of manufacturing, produce lighter-weight vehicles, and that will scale manufacturing to the speed of relevance. The overarching goal of this concentrated effort is to develop a state-of-the-art, hybrid, large-scale AM system that incorporates both two-part resin and pellet-fed material extrusion technologies, capable of processing both advanced thermoset polymers and performance-grade thermoplastic materials.

A member of America Makes, JuggerBot 3D will collaborate with the Institute, which works to accelerate the adoption of AM and advance the nation’s global manufacturing competitiveness.
