This stretchable, deformable antennae - designed to turn throat vibrations into a decipherable electric signal - was 3D-printed using a direct-ink writing process, one of four additive manufacturing approaches being developed at Lawrence Livermore. Learn More
Metal Additive Manufacturing
This rocket engine was 3D-printed whole in 8 days at a cost of $10,000, at least an order of magnitude more cost effective than would be the case with traditional manufacturing approaches. Learn more
We're simulating our way toward faster part certification to realize the unique benefits of rapid build time and microstructural control offered by additive manufacturing. Learn More
Modeling and Simulation
We leverage decades of experience developing predictive models to speed time to prototype and engineer precision effects. Learn More
The sponsor needed this low-collateral-damage munition fast. A Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory team completed a prototype within 9 months, and BLU-129/B was completely fielded in 18 months. Learn More
A core discipline that embraces the committment to determinism, precision engineering is embodied by solutions that are quantifiable, measureable, predictable, and repeatable. Learn More
If you need 10,000 paperclips, you may want to go somewhere else. Our wheelhouse is developing first-run solutions to manufacturing challenges at extreme scales with unprecedented properties and precision effects.
A combination of aggressive program deliverables and strategic institutional R&D investments enables us to maintain a unique capability mix:
Part manufacturing expertise
Material science R&D
It's this mix that enables us to engage across a broad spectrum of advanced manufacturing challenges, which is exactly what we live for.
