Build parts, optimize finishing, and provide validation information for users
Additive manufacturing is one of the most recent and exciting discoveries in manufacturing and science, but it also can be one of the most daunting endeavors to pursue. At UES, we offer a full service offering focused on additive manufacturing (AM).
UES and our expert partners are creating a “virtual foundry.” We offer additively manufactured parts along with the information necessary (from UES) to validate the AM process, enabling the AM parts to be used with confidence. Our team flourishes with the technical breadth and the supportive work environment that UES provides, and consistently meets our customers' high expectations.
UES is also a proud member of America Makes, a leading and collaborative partner in additive manufacturing and 3D printing technology and workforce development.

UES has built a fast-growing reputation in the area of metal additive manufacturing (AM) quality assessment. After maturing the technology through SBIR programs, UES scientists are working with a Rapid Innovation Fund program to deliver optimized AM components for use by the Air Force Space and Missiles Command.
AM enables a direct build of a manufactured part from a computer aided design (CAD) file. However, there are a myriad of process parameters that need to be optimized for a successful part to be built. We focus on controlled experimentation, extensive mechanical analysis, and Robo-Met.3D® materials characterization to evaluate the effect of these parameters, with the goal of improving process yield.
