September 4, 2018 – UES, Inc. is pleased to announce joining America Makes. UES is confident this membership will allow us to leverage significant investments in advanced materials characterization and technologies and apply them to the Additive Manufacturing (AM) and 3D printing (3DP) technologies realm, of which America Makes is the nation’s leader.

A key offering for this membership is UES’ Robo-Met.3D® technology. Robo-Met.3D, developed in partnership with AFRL, is a fully automated serial-sectioning system for three-dimensional microstructural investigation. This unique technology is ideally positioned to evaluate additive manufacturing process development and powder characterization, and to assist the additive community in generating data for assessment, qualification and quality control leading to critical component manufacturing.

“We are excited to bring our 45-year background in materials science and current innovations in metallurgical analysis to serve the AM/3DP community as an active member of America Makes,” said Nina Joshi, UES President and CEO. “The goals of America Makes and UES are aligned in advising manufacturers regarding materials, the role of AM/3DP across industries and the best practices for obtaining the strongest insights possible from materials characterization.”

In addition, UES has a deep and significant background in the design, development and processing of advanced intermetallics, ceramics, ceramic matrix composites, high entropy materials, and structural alloys, as well as computational design of materials.

Structured as a public-private partnership, members in America Makes include organizations from industry, academia, government, non-government agencies, and workforce and economic development resources. The organization was established in 2012, is based in Youngstown, Ohio, and is the flagship Institute for Manufacturing USA, the National Network for Manufacturing Innovation. America Makes is managed and operated by the National Center for Defense Manufacturing and Machining (NCDMM).
