The Manufacturing Institute at NAM, has begun a new research series in partnership with PricewaterhouseCoopers called Disruptive Innovations in Manufacturing. The series looks at new technologies that are changing the face of manufacturing and analyzes how those technologies will impact the workforce, the market, and the growth of manufacturing in the United States.

The first report in the series focuses on Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing.

This technology has captured the imagination of the press and public at-large, with visions of printers in every home producing custom-fit clothing, new cell phones, and replacement car parts. While this vision may never be reality, 3D Printing is poised to change the face of manufacturing.
