RIT engineers are improving manufacturing processes and systems through cutting-edge innovations in science and technology.
While additive manufacturing (AM) and 3D Printing (3DP) technologies have justifiably generated a great deal of excitement, they are only scratching the surface of what's possible. This is because AM and 3DP technologies have typically been used to fabricate purely mechanical parts. But what about parts that require electrical functionality? Or thermal, optical, magnetic, biological, or chemical functionality? RIT's Additive Manufacturing and Multifunctional Printing (AMPrint) Center is among the first research centers in the world to specifically focus on Multifunctional 3D Printing.
Gear Research Consortium
RIT's Gear Research Consortium promotes the alliance between gear industry companies, research activities in advanced theory and practice of gearing, the education of graduate and undergraduate students, and networking activities among the consortium members. The Gear Research Consortium engages RIT faculty, graduate students, undergraduate students, staff, and collaborators to support pre-commercial research with shared results, publications, and scholarly activities that would be useful to all its members.
