Argonne’s Manufacturing Science and Engineering program focuses on advancing manufacturing technology for rapidly changing needs, which require a unique blend of expertise and tools. Argonne’s breadth of manufacturing science, engineering, experimentation and process scale-up capabilities are complementary to the private sector.
Argonne can provide the R&D support to accelerate advanced materials scale-up and process optimization capabilities. The laboratory will more than double its scale-up and manufacturing space with the planned FY 2019 opening of the Materials Engineering Research Facility (MERF) expansion. This will provide a convening ground for partnerships between Argonne, industry, national laboratories, and academia on manufacturing science and engineering.
