“There are some cool wind turbine blades being built directly via additive manufacturing, as well as using additive manufacturing to fabricate the molds that are then used to make carbon fiber composite wind turbine blades. And GE has achieved an amazing breakthrough with the fuel igniter for its revolutionary aircraft LEAP engine. But my favorite (so far) is the Shelby Cobra sportscar built by Oak Ridge National Labs using the Big Area Additive Manufacturing (BAAM) machine.”
- Help the state’s manufacturing sector to modernize and compete using current additive manufacturing technology where it is immediately applicable.
- Support the development of the next generation of manufacturing technologies.
- Encourage the development of superior products that would otherwise be impossible/impractical to manufacture, including the creation and incubation of new applications for additive manufacturing and attendant first-to-market advantages.
- Foster new talent and/or retraining the existing workforce for employment in additive manufacturing and related industries.
