America Makes Manufacturing USA Institute Announces Four New Project Calls Totaling $2.1 Million

Jul 31, 2020


America Makes, a Manufacturing USA Institute focused on additive manufacturing based in Youngstown, Ohio, recently announced four new project calls to accelerate the adoption of additive manufacturing (AM) and create new ways for the AM supply chain to engage with the Institute. The four calls are in the following categories: AM for hypersonics, member driven rapid innovation, government driven rapid innovation, and an open project call. America Makes will dive into each of these areas in more detail during their Technical Review Exchange conference being held virtually from August 4-5.
  • AM for Hypersonics Project Call will accelerate the maturation of additively manufactured high temperature metals which offer potential to impact cost, performance, and lead time for hypersonic capabilities. AM has been identified as key to timely fielding of hypersonic capabilities and addressing shortfalls of traditional manufacturing processes which are often costly, low-yield, and labor intensive.
  • Member Driven Rapid Innovation Call will seek to address immediate and readily actionable needs identified by America Makes members. The Rapid Innovation Call will allow the Institute an agile framework to adapt to the evolving challenges of the supply chain via direct input from the membership. Full details will be available on August 4.
  • Government Driven Rapid Innovation Call will follow the same process as the Member Driven Rapid Innovation Call, except it will gather needs from government stakeholders. Full details will be available on August 4.
  • The Open Project Call will leverage collaboration and perspectives from the existing America Makes membership, working groups, and Roadmap Advisory Group (RMAG). The goal for this project call is to create actionable focus areas to address the needs of the membership and its stakeholders.
ASME has been an active member of America Makes since its formation. For more information, please visit:
