RJ Lee Group, an industrial forensics analytical laboratory, has established a lab at Penn State University in Pittsburgh, USA and signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the institution.

‘We are very excited to sign this Memorandum of Understanding with Penn State and firmly believe it will lead to numerous opportunities for increased collaboration in materials, transportation, information sciences, life sciences, agriculture, energy and advanced additive manufacturing,’ said Dr Richard Lee, founder and president of RJ Lee Group. ‘Having a new facility here in Innovation Park will allow RJ Lee Group to expand and strengthen our collaborations with Penn State and the rapidly growing high tech community located here.’

The company also recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with ceramic specialist Morgan Advanced Materials, which is establishing its Carbon Science Centre of Excellence (CoE) nearby.

According to Lee the lab’s close proximity to Penn State’s CIMP-3D and the wider additive manufacturing (AM) community could help develop collaborations in powdered metal characterization.
