The Consortium for Advanced Hybrid Manufacturing-Integrating Technologies (CAM-IT) has been awarded a $495,910 federal grant to support its work on hybrid manufacturing. The consortium, established with the assistance of Youngstown State University and North Carolina State University, aims to be the first to develop a comprehensive roadmap for integrating additive and subtractive metal manufacturing technologies in order to accelerate the adoption of the technology.

The grant funding will help YSU bring together individual stakeholders to collaborate on the accelerated adoption of precision additive manufacturing metal parts. The program is intended to enhance advanced manufacturing capabilities, improve the efficiency and reliability of additive manufacturing processes, develop workforce training and education requirements, and further develop the supply chain for hybrid manufacturing. CAM-IT will also provide U.S. manufacturers with shorter lead times and more affordable low-volume production.

The project builds upon two successful partnerships between YSU and the Youngstown Business Incubator to support the adoption of additive manufacturing technology in industry.
