Fourteen different manufacturing innovation institutes comprise Manufacturing USA. These institutes are public-private partnerships that each have distinct technology focus areas but work towards a common goal: to secure America’s future through manufacturing innovation, education, and collaboration.
The New York Manufacturing Extension Partnership, of which FuzeHub is a part, maintains staff dedicated to six of the institutes (listed below), helping to move the institutes’ newly developed technologies into the small companies that comprise the bulk of the U.S. manufacturing base. Find summaries of all 14 institutes in the FuzeHub Report: Manufacturing USA.
Materials & Materials/Chemical Processing
Additive manufacturing and 3D printing, adoption of cutting-edge manufacturing technologies for low-cost, energy-efficient manufacturing of advanced polymer composites for vehicles, wind turbines, and compressed gas storage.
Electronics, Sensors, Optics/Photonics
Hybrid electronics, advanced semiconductor components, integrated photonic solutions and much more advanced manufacturing techniques are being addressed by several institutes in various capacities.
Robotics & Automation
Deploying robotic technology by integrating the diverse collection of industry practices and institutional knowledge across many disciplines. In addition, how to deploy digital manufacturing and design technologies, so those factories can become more efficient and cost-competitive.
Sustainable Manufacturing, Reuse/Recycle
A focus on enabling early stage applied research and development of technologies that could dramatically reduce the embodied energy and carbon emissions associated with industrial-scale materials production and processing.
Smart manufacturing optimizes business, technology, infrastructure, and workforce practices using engineered systems that integrate information technology with operational technologies.
Biotechnology, Metronics, Biofabrication
From large-scale manufacturing of engineered tissues and tissue-related technologies to flexible manufacturing for biopharmaceuticals, there are a few institutes focused in this area.
