The purpose of the NEO AM Cluster, which began as a study called the Asset Map of Additive Manufacturing Opportunities in Northeast Ohio (Asset Map), is to create a clear vision for the integration of the Additive Manufacturing (AM) supply chain in northeast Ohio. A primary component of this vision is the ability to capitalize on the technology advancements being generated by America Makes, the national accelerator for AM and 3D printing (3DP).
By 2023, Northeast Ohio will be recognized as a leader in:
Design and engineering for additive manufacturing
Using additive manufacturing for productivity enhancements
AM entrepreneurial investment and growth
AM materials innovation
Attraction of significant investment related to the core activities of America Makes
In late 2015, the project team began the process of road mapping the regional commercialization landscape to identify AM opportunities that include:
Maximizing ongoing AM research and development
Generating new industry applications of AM
Stimulating regional entrepreneurial activity
Driving business and economic growth throughout the northeast Ohio AM supply chain
