Center Profile

The UW-Milwaukee Center for Advanced Materials Manufacturing was formed with the goal of becoming a world leader in research and application of advanced materials manufacturing, while being an integral resource in the transfer of selected materials manufacturing technologies to US industry.

The main missions of the center include:

  • Revitalize the materials manufacturing industry in Wisconsin and the United States.
  • To further integrate Wisconsin’s higher education facilities and its industries
  • Create ties with national and international institutes:

Foundry Research Institute, Poland
IIT, IISC, CSIR and other institutes in India
Northwestern, UCF, UF Gainesville, MIT, Brooklyn, Stanford, Argonne, Oakridge, PNNL

  • Develop collaborative agreements with leading materials manufacturing centers in the US and around the world.

Current focus in research consists of materials used for lightweight transportation; energy generation, transmission and purification; biomedical applications; green manufacturing techniques, and finally materials used for national defense by the Navy, Air Force, and Army.

Specific areas of research include high performance castings, metal matrix micro- and nano-composites, metal matrix syntactic foams, self-healing materials, self-cleaning materials and finally databases for TMS, the DoD, and other industries.
