UES appreciates being part of this network of key decision makers committed to evolving Additive Manufacturing from the lab to the shop floor. Our roots in science and technology development, as well as commercialization, create a sweet spot for us in listening to customers with a strong interest in advancing manufacturing without compromising due scientific diligence. Our experience within America Makes has been truly positive, and we look forward to discovering how our R&D background and expertise in materials science and related characterization techniques can best support the mission of the organization and its members.
UES is a leading-edge science and technology company founded in 1973. We provide customers with scientific research services and technical expertise in several disciplines, including materials science, additive manufacturing and product development. We have a rich history in technology transitions, product launches, and even seeing an enterprise through to an IPO.
Today, UES has expanded services to support research with several new customers. We take pride in our status as an Ohio-based, women owned small business that partners effectively with government and industry customers.
UES has also built a fast-growing reputation in the area of metal additive manufacturing (AM) quality assessment, by winning and delivering on several SBIR, Rapid Innovation Fund and Industrial Consultancy projects. The UES team focuses on controlled experimentation, extensive mechanical analysis, as well as Robo-Met.3D® characterization, to evaluate the effect of AM parameters, with the goal of improving process yield.
UES and our expert partners are also developing a “virtual foundry”. The goal is to offer additively manufactured parts along with the information necessary (from UES) to validate the AM process. This enables the AM parts to be used with confidence.
