Auburn University has established a new Centre of Industrialised Additive Manufacturing and has been awarded a three-year $1.5million grant from the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

The university hope the centre can help establish them as a leading researcher in a growing sector of the manufacturing industry. To help progression in the research and development of 3D printing, Auburn University have selected Tony Overfelt, the William and Elizabeth Reed Professor of Mechanical Engineering, as the centre’s inaugural director.
