NIST Opens the Doors to Manufacturing’s Future: A Gallery

Jan. 25, 2019
Here’s a look inside the NIST labs at the tools and methods it’s developing to improve manufacturing.

Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) are pushing modern manufacturing to reach its full potential. These NIST snapshots provide a glimpse into manufacturing’s future: robotic arms controlled through virtual reality, cell-based medicine, 3D metal printing, wireless factory communications, a “digital thread” that electronically connects product design to fabrication, neutrons that look inside consumer products, and experts serving local manufacturers in one of its Manufacturing Extension Partnership centers.
