CIMP-3D : Center for Innovative Materials Processing Through Direct Digital Deposition

CIMP-3D provides world-class capabilities and facilities in additive manufacturing technology for the benefit of a broad range of government and industrial sponsorship. The new Additive Manufacturing Demonstration Facility (MDF) is installed within Building 230 at Innovation Park on the campus of Penn State. The 8,000 square-foot facility includes several additive manufacturing (AM) systems capable of full consolidation of polymeric, metallic, and ceramic material systems, as well as a state-of-the-art design studio and prototyping laboratory which includes a host of characterization techniques.

Coupled with the extensive expertise of the Center team, CIMP-3D provides unparalleled potential for advancing and deploying AM technology. Current research activity within the Center is directed at the development of technologies that will enable greater utilization of additive manufacturing in industry.
