An award from the Dyson Foundation will allow the Hudson Valley Advanced Manufacturing Center (HVAMC) at SUNY New Paltz to purchase 3D metal printing, wax printing and continuous-build equipment.
The award has the potential to transform the manufacturing industry in the Hudson Valley, through a dramatic expansion of the HVAMC’s ability to deliver high-value 3D printing for both prototypes and final-use parts to regional businesses.
The USD 500,000 awarded to the SUNY New Paltz Foundation will enable the HVAMC to purchase three distinct technologies and expand staffing to help Hudson Valley manufacturers and other businesses take advantage of the Center’s new capabilities.
The funding will also allow the HVAMC to purchase a wax 3D printer that can print at extremely high resolution, to create products that can be integrated into traditional casting techniques.
Lastly, the Dyson Foundation award will enable the HVAMC to work with Stratasys to implement a “Continuous Build” printing system, which automates the process of removing a completed build from a printer and starting the next.
