CEnter of excellence for Additive Manufacturing

Our New Endeavor

NJSAMPE was recently designated as SAMPE's first Center of Excellence for Additive Manufacturing.   Our first project is a brand-new symposium event.


In cooperation with the Rutgers School of Engineering, NJSAMPE is sponsoring a one-day symposium at Rutgers on Friday, June 14,  highlighting additive manufacturing technology, research, and collaboration in the Greater New Jersey metropolitan area. This will be an opportunity for material and equipment suppliers to showcase their products and for researchers to present their ongoing projects and interests and explore collaboration and sponsorship opportunities. 


We are pleased to announce the following preliminary Program:

· Joseph Bartolai – Pennsylvania State University

Using a Polymer Weld Theory and Thermal History to Calculate Strength of Thermoplastic Polymer Material Extrusion AM Parts.

· Jonathan Gorka – Evonik Industries

Specialty Precipitated Silicas for Improving Flowability of Industrial Powders.

· Daehoo Han – Rutgers University

Rapid 3D Printing of Multi-Material Structures with Projection Micro-Stereolithography Using Dynamic Fluidic Control.

· Dylan Kovacevich – Rutgers University

Electrospray Deposition Post-Processing of Optically Fabricated Hydrogels.

· Roseanne Kramer – Formlabs

What’s Next in 3D Printing: Formlabs Vision and Roadmap.

· Howon Lee – Rutgers University

4D Printing: Additive Manufacturing of Reconfigurable Soft Materials.

· David Maass – FlightAware

Closed Loop Control for L-PBF AM Using Layer Topographic Mapping (LTM).

· Ravic Malhotra – Rutgers University

Pulsed Light Sintering for Advanced Manufacturing of Printed Electronics.

· Vinay Mishra – Dixie Chemical

Extrusion Deposition Additive Manufacturing Utilizing High Glass Transition Temperature Latent Cured Epoxy Systems.

· Sangya Varma – Rutgers University

Closing the Skills Gap: Biofabrication Workforce Development, 3D Bioprinting, Cell Culture, Digital Dentistry and More!

· John Weber – Gentex Corporation
