The Polytechnic School at Arizona State University (ASU) is now home to the largest additive manufacturing research facility in the Southwest United States. The 3D printing research center, the “Manufacturing Research and Innovation Hub,” was realized in partnership with 3D printing company Concept Laser, Honeywell Aerospace, and Phoenix Analysis & Design Technologies, Inc. (PADT, Inc.).

Even before the new additive manufacturing center was established, ASU’s Polytechnic School was the only school in the state of Arizona to offer an undergraduate program for manufacturing engineering—the program is also one of only 22 ABET accredited manufacturing engineering programs in the whole country. Now, there is little doubt that their program will become even more reputable as students and faculty now have access to a 15,000-square-foot 3D printing center.

Facility - Array - Equipment - Worth - Plastic

The facility is equipped with an impressive array of equipment, including over $2 million worth of plastic, polymer, and metal 3D printing technologies. Having partnered with German 3D printer company Concept Laser (recently bought by GE), the facility houses a number of the company’s products, including its metal 3D printing M2 cusing and Mlab cusing machines.

As one can imagine, the new ASU 3D printing center will be used...
