Additive Manufacturing Cluster of Ohio

To ensure linkages to talent, transformation, innovation, and leadership that comprise the four pillars of the Manufacturing Blueprint, the existing Additive Manufacturing Cluster of Ohio will fold in under the Smart Manufacturing Cluster of Northeast Ohio. The Smart Manufacturing Cluster will not only address the additive manufacturing opportunity but also the other key growth initiatives encompassed in smart manufacturing – such as Industrial IoT, Data-Driven Manufacturing, Robotics and Automation, just to name a few.
