Annual Report on U.S. Manufacturing Industry Statistics: 2022

October 20, 2022
Douglas Thomas
This report provides a statistical review of the U.S. manufacturing industry. There are three aspects of U.S. manufacturing that are considered: (1) how the U.S. industry compares to other countries, (2) the trends in the domestic industry, and (3) the

Manufacturing USA Highlights Report 2022

October 19, 2022
Zahraha Brunner
Manufacturing USA® is a network of public-private partnerships united to secure U.S. global leadership in advanced manufacturing through large scale collaboration on technology, supply chain, and workforce development. The network includes the U.S

Circular Economy in a High-Tech World

October 18, 2022
Kelsea Schumacher, Martin L. Green
The proliferation of electronics, batteries, and solar panels in recent decades has resulted in a substantial generation of end-of-life (EoL) "high-tech" products. Currently, these products follow a largely linear – extract, make, use, dispose – model, but

New Standards Working Group on Semantic Maps and More to Come!

September 30, 2022
Jaeho Lee, Craig I. Schlenoff
The Robotics and Automation Society's (RAS) standards working groups continue to grow. Our current working groups are pursuing standards and guidelines in the following areas. - Autonomous Robots - Ethically Driven Nudging for Robotic, Intelligent and

Towards the Physical Reliability of 3D-Integrated Systems: Broadband Dielectric Spectroscopic (BDS) Studies of Material Evolution and Reliability in Integrated Systems

September 30, 2022
Papa Amoah, Joseph J. Kopanski, Yaw S. Obeng, Christopher Sunday, Chukwudi Okoro, Lin You, Dmirty Veksler
In this paper, we present an overview of our current research focus in developing non-destructive metrology for monitoring reliability issues in 3D-integrated electronic systems. We introduce a suite of non-destructive metrologies that can serve as early

The Industrial Ontologies Foundry (IOF) Core Ontology

September 19, 2022
Boonserm Kulvatunyou, Milos Drobnjakovic, Farhad Ameri, Chris Will, Barry Smith
The Industrial Ontologies Foundry (IOF) has been formed to create a suite of interoperable ontologies that would serve as a foundation for data and information interoperability in all areas of manufacturing. To ensure that the ontologies are developed in a

Measuring downstream supply chain losses due to power disturbances

September 16, 2022
Douglas Thomas, Juan Fung
Power outages in the U.S. affect many firms' economic activity and are likely to result in downstream supply chain disruptions. This paper examines the impact of power disturbances in the supply chain for four industries: manufacturing, durable goods

The Strategy for American Leadership in High-Consequence Additive Manufacturing

September 9, 2022
Mark Benedict, Shawn P. Moylan, Souhail Al-Abed, Cindy Ashforth, Y. Kevin Chou, Matthew Di Prima, Alaa Elwany, Michael Gorelik, Astrid Lewis, Todd Luxton, Blake Marshall, William Mullins, Linda Sapochak, Richard Russell, James A. Warren, Douglas Wells
Over the past decade, a consistent theme in enhancing U.S. global competitiveness has been the need for U.S. leadership in critical advanced manufacturing technologies. Additive manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D Printing, has been among those critical

Effects of local processing parameters on microstructure, texture, and mechanical properties of electron beam powder bed fusion manufactured Ti-6Al-4V

August 27, 2022
Edwin Schwalbach, Jake Benzing, Vikas Sinha, Todd Butler, Adam Pilchak, Kevin Chaput, Norman Schehl, Reji John, Nik Hrabe
Electron beam powder bed fusion scan strategies for parts or part groupings of various sizes and scan line lengths have been found to inadvertently lead to significant variations in crystallographic texture and mechanical properties for Ti–6Al–4V. This

Schmid Factor Crack Propagation and Tracking Crystallographic Texture Markers of Microstructural Condition in Direct Energy Deposition Additive Manufacturing of Ti-6Al-4V

July 6, 2022
Alec Saville, Jake Benzing, Sven Vogel, Jessica Buckner, Collin Donohoue, Andrew Kustas, Adam Abel Creuziger, Kester Clarke, Amy Clarke
Metallic additive manufacturing (AM) provides a customizable and tailorable manufacturing process for new engineering designs and technologies. The greatest challenge currently facing metallic AM is maintaining control of microstructural evolution during
