Experience That Adds Up

We’ve helped industrial users with rapid prototyping since 1993 and are one of the world’s premier additive manufacturing (AM) centers. Count on our experience to get your product to market quickly.


AMIST Core Facility

Additive Manufacturing Institute of Science and Technology (AMIST) serves as a regional and national leader in the research, education, development and training in the areas of additive manufacturing (AM)/3D printing and digital manufacturing. With a highly cross-disciplinary member composition and collaborative environment, AMIST aims to inspire and enable transformative research and education for the next generation workforce. The world-class core facility of AMIST is a shared facility that houses a variety of AM technologies as well as various other material testing and characterization capabilities needed for a broad range of tasks. In addition to supporting the core missions of AMIST in research and education, AMIST core facility also enables researchers and collaborators both internally and externally for advanced manufacturing solutions and R&D efforts.
