EQUIPMENT

The AML will house some of the most sophisticated and capable equipment in the field of advanced/additive manufacturing, some of which are not yet commercially available. Additional resources will include material evaluation and characterization equipment, access to high-performance computing (HPC) modeling and simulation capabilities, and manufacturing systems from several active LLNL research programs. Advances made at the AML will be motivated and accelerated through a motivation of dual-purpose applications—both commercial and government products.
