The National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute (NAMII) is a public-private partnership with member organizations from industry, academia, government, and workforce development resources all collaborating with a singular, shared vision.
NAMII’s goal is to transition additive manufacturing technology to the mainstream U.S. manufacturing sector and create an adaptive workforce capable of not only meeting industry needs but also increasing domestic manufacturing competitiveness.
NAMII is organized and managed by the National Center for Defense Manufacturing and Machining (NCDMM), which brings a background steeped in experience within the defense, additive, and general manufacturing industries and a proven track record of developing and deploying manufacturing innovation. NAMII is a national asset significantly different than traditional research institutes.
Based in Youngstown, Ohio, NAMII is built upon an extensive network of additive manufacturing technical expertise surrounding a regional manufacturing cluster within the Eastern Ohio / Western Pennsylvania / West Virginia “Tech Belt” region.
