HUNTSVILLE — America Makes, in partnership with the Advanced Manufacturing Innovation and Integration Center in Huntsville, will host the Fall 2022 Technical Review & Exchange next month.
The two-day (Oct. 18-19) event at the University of Alabama in Huntsville will showcase presenters who are experts in the advanced and additive manufacturing industry.
“It’s an honor to co-host this event in Huntsville, along with our sister company America Makes,” said John Schmitt, executive director of AMIIC. “The role that the Huntsville community plays in the national additive manufacturing dialogue is critical. North Alabama has a stake in the commodities we design, deliver, and sustain from Redstone Arsenal that are fundamental to our national security.
“Participating in forums and discussions like TRX is essential to truly advance and build a workforce to meet the technical challenges ahead.”
John Vickers, NASA principal technologist in Advanced Materials and Manufacturing, and Denise Harris, acting director for Industrial Manufacturing Technology at the Missile Defense Agency, will head a panel discussion on “Army Challenges of Adopting Additive Manufacturing.”
TRX is a technically focused collaboration that offers content sharing at an in-depth level. It offers attendees dynamic access to updates, results, and impacts of the America Makes projects to advance additive manufacturing.
Based in Youngstown, Ohio, America Makes is a public-private partnership for additive manufacturing technology and education. Their members come from industry, academia, government, workforce, and economic development organizations, working together to accelerate the adoption of AM and the nation’s global manufacturing competitiveness.
“TRX will allow America Makes to highlight 17 projects in our portfolio,” said John Wilczynski, executive director of America Makes. “It’s an opportunity for technical experts to learn more about the important work in process at the Institute while allowing them to interact with the principal investigators who lead the research.
“This dynamic interaction ensures the membership get value out of the investments being made in the technology. AMIIC is an important partner for the Institute, and we look forward to bringing the AM ecosystem to the Huntsville region.”
The TRX presentation format is intended to be flexible and conversational in its structure to permit more organic interaction throughout each presentation.
AMIIC helps accelerate state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies and serves and strengthens North Alabama and its growing talent pipeline.
