Explore High-Impact Issues: Watch Congressional Briefings

Metamorphic Manufacturing: A New Frontier for Digital Manufacturing

A Congressional Briefing Hosted by the House Manufacturing Caucus
June 6, 2019 • Washington, D.C., USA
Imagine agile, robotic arms able to shape metals into highly precise parts, large and small, with almost no waste. Now, imagine that this methodology can also create new market opportunities and increased economic growth. Metamorphic Manufacturing, a new technology that forges metal objects to precise specifications, takes the skill and force of a human metalsmith and replicates it with a combination of robotic systems, intelligent machines, sensors, and integrated computational learning (i.e., artificial intelligence). In this presentation, Glenn Daehn, The Ohio State University, describes the potential for Metamorphic Manufacturing at a briefing for U.S. Congressional leaders.
