Rochester Institute of Technology announced the opening of an Additive Manufacturing and Multifunctional Printing (AMPrint) Center on Oct. 25. The center is one of the first research labs in the world to focus on multi-functional 3-D printing. The new technologies are said to be faster than current machinery and can blend multiple materials in a single component to produce high performance products. The institute also announced a partnership with local manufacturing companies to further commercialize materials.
