In June 2014, EWI won the NIST AMTech project to develop the first US national roadmap for materials forming and joining technologies. The goal of the NIST AMTech program is to strengthen the capacity of U.S. industry to compete in global markets with the selected technology areas. EWI received one of nineteen planning awards.

This EWI-FC project aims to:

  • Create industry-led, shared-vision technology roadmaps for the development of technologies underpinning transformational innovations
  • Identify and prioritize research projects supporting long-term industrial research needs

The EWI Forming Center is leading the development of the U.S. forming technology roadmap with the help of the steering committee consisting of key representatives and technical experts of existing US industry consortiums, including the Precision Metalforming Association (PMA), Society of Manufacturing Engineers(SME), the Forging Industry Association (FIA) and the Ohio State University (OSU).

The steering committee works to:

  • Identify and prioritize long-term, pre-competitive industrial research needs
  • Enable technology development
  • Create the infrastructure necessary for more efficient transfer of technology
  • Represent a broad range of involved firms across stages of the value chain

After the planning project is fully implemented, NIST envisions AM Tech to offer implementation awards funding for the selected technical areas.
