Developing a U.S. Roadmap for Advanced Joining and Forming Technologies — A New Report

By Tom McGaughy on Friday, March 31st, 2017


IMG_9038Recently, EWI led the development of the first comprehensive U.S. Advanced Joining and Forming Technology Roadmap under a program funded by The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) through the Advanced Manufacturing Technology Consortia (AMTech) program. The goal of this two-year effort was to develop a prioritized list of research and development topics aimed at increasing the competitiveness of U.S. manufacturing.
The roadmap provides a national perspective on the technical and economic needs of the materials-joining and metal-forming industries and incorporates input from over 400 companies across every major manufacturing segment in the U.S.
