The Commonwealth Center for Advanced Manufacturing (CCAM) has announced it will partner in the new public-private Digital Manufacturing and Design Innovation (DMDI) Institute launched recently by President Barack Obama.

DMDI is one of two new manufacturing innovation institutes being led by the Department of Defense (DoD). DMDI and the Lightweight and Modern Metals Manufacturing Innovation (LM3I) institute are industry, university and non-profit consortiums that will advance manufacturing technology developments to meet national security and energy needs.

“CCAM is pleased to support DMDI and looks forward to leveraging the CCAM facility and research capabilities in concert with the institute’s goals,” said Bob Fagan, Chief Technology Officer (CTO). “DMDI provides an opportunity for the CCAM member companies to participate in the DMDI projects, innovations and leading edge developments.”

DMDI and LM3I were formed to accelerate product development and manufacturing across diverse industries in the U.S. and to spur the creation of jobs in advanced manufacturing through new innovations. The institutes bridge the gap between research, product development, member consortiums and federal agencies to co-invest in technology and innovation.

The DMDI is headquartered in Chicago and led by the University of Illinois Labs. Its consortium includes 73 companies, universities, nonprofits and research labs.

CCAM, based in Prince George County, VA, provides production ready advanced manufacturing solutions to member companies across the globe. CCAM’s work in advanced manufacturing and surface engineering bridges the gap between research and commercialization, accelerating technology into markets and demonstrating technology to address real issues. CCAM industry and government members include Canon Virginia Inc., Chromalloy, Newport News Shipbuilding, Rolls-Royce, Sandvik Coromant, Siemens, Sulzer Metco, Aerojet, Hermle Machine Co., Mitutoyo, TurboCombustor Technology Inc., Buehler, Cool Clean Technologies, GF AgieCharmilles, Blaser Swisslube, Mechdyne, National Instruments, and NASA Langley Research Center.
