Concept Laser, Honeywell Aerospace, and PADT build additive manufacturing center at ASU


January 11, 2017

Concept Laser, Honeywell Aerospace, and PADT have partnered with the Polytechnic School at Arizona State University to build a 15,000-sq.-ft. additive manufacturing research facility on the Polytechnic campus. The facility holds more than $2 million of plastic, polymer, and 3-D metal printing equipment.

The lab has a Concept Laser M2 cusing and Mlab cusing machine that are dedicated to 3-D metal printing. The school uses the machines for a variety of R&D activites, including materials development and prototyping complex mechanical and energy systems.

In addition, Honeywell assisted in the procurement of an additive manufacturing machine for the lab.

The ASU Polytechnic School will host an open house to celebrate the launch of the Manufacturing Research and Innovation Hub on Jan. 18, 2017, at 9:00 a.m. To register for the event, visit www.mrihlaunch.eventbrite.com.
