Problem

In support of the America Makes mission, PSU ARL will conduct a program encompassing several tasks designed to extend and reinforce this mission by: (1) aiding in bridging the gap between applied research and mature product development; (2) providing shared assets to help the nation’s industrial base; (3) furthering the adoption of additive manufacturing technology; and (4) helping to develop a rich environment for the education and training of technologists.

Objective

PSU ARL will conduct several tasks as an integrated member of the America Makes partnership with the focus on spurring development, application, and implementation of additive manufacturing technology of metallic materials.

Technical Approach

Several critical areas are being addressed that will enable further advancement and adoption of Additive Manufacturing (AM). These enabling technologies that are being advanced under this program include: (1) demonstration of AM technology for the Department of Defense; (2) improving the ability to capture all data during AM; (3) engaging interest in AM from small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs); (4) supporting America Makes training and outreach activities; (5) improving the basic understanding of the process for furthering adoption; and (6) identifying numerical capabilities for accurately simulating AM.
