Northeast Ohio is building a reputation as an important hub for additive manufacturing, or 3D printing. Cluster members include NASA, Owens Corning, Parker Hannifin, Timken and many other large and smaller NEO organizations.
Educational institutions in the area are also committed to preparing students for AM technology careers. Among the 26 accredited colleges and universities in the region (with nearly 400 more within a 150-mile radius), you will find Case Western Reserve University, University of Akron, Cleveland State University, Youngstown State University, Cuyahoga Community College and Stark State College involved.
This collaboration is progressively building regional 3D printing expertise.
