The Emerging Manufacturing Collaboration Center (EMC2) is a cross-sector manufacturing innovation center that enables its members to design and deliver cutting edge manufacturing technologies. Founded through a public-private-partnership, the Center will operate a functioning 60k ft2 manufacturing floor that will serve as a showcase for new capabilities as well as a platform for collaborative research and development, especially focused on technology insertion and adoption. EMC2 will also have offices, shared office space, collaboration environment, and a 100-person training/workshop classroom that can be divided into two 50 person rooms. The Center will support the long-term growth of the State of Indiana’s manufacturing industry, which is a key driver of Indiana’s economy.
Ways to Engage
- The new facility, Emerging Manufacturing Collaboration Center (EMC2), will be located at the 16 Tech Innovation District and is expected to open by summer 2022. EMC2 will allow new and existing manufacturers to utilize state-of-the-art equipment, including GE Additive’s Binder Jet technology, to train employees, conduct third-party pilot manufacturing, and increase awareness of products and software applications. Additionally, GE Additive will extend its Binder Jet Beta program at the facility, collaborating with Indiana businesses and industry and academic partners to fuel Binder Jet-enabled R&D in additive manufacturing, factory automation, advanced software development, and manufacturing readiness.
