America Makes, the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute, is releasing to its membership its America Makes Capabilities Database, a searchable, online directory that provides information regarding the additive manufacturing (AM) capabilities of its member organizations.

Accessible via the members-only side of the America Makes website, the new database makes it easier to develop teaming, vendor, and customer relationships among the membership community.

‘One of the key tenants of America Makes is to foster a highly collaborative infrastructure for the open exchange of AM information and research,’ said by America Makes deputy director of technology transition, Kevin Creehan.

The organisation also plans to grow the Capabilities Database to provide members with a searchable, view of the entire AM supply chain at large, including a direct link to the Senvol Database, a comprehensive, searchable database of industrial AM machines and materials.
