The National Center for Defense Manufacturing and Machining (NCDMM) has received more than US$9 million from the US Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) to support the Massive Area Additive Manufacturing (MAAM) Program.

The program is aimed at commercializing the world’s largest additive manufacturing machine for production of large parts for industrial and defense. The MAAM machine, developed by Center Street Technologies (CST) is intended for the production of large parts for industrial usage in automotive, energy, construction/civil engineering and maritime.
