Rochester Institute of Technology announced Friday the creation of a Digital Manufacturing and Product Realization Lab designed to help entrepreneurs turn ideas into prototypes that will lead to new products.
The estimated $3 million lab is to be housed on the fourth floor of the Golisano Institute for Sustainability and feature extensive resources and equipment along with the expertise of RIT experts, officials said.
“This highly sophisticated lab will enable manufacturers to streamline their development process, promote U.S.-based supply chains and help boost the growth of manufacturing both regionally and nationally,” said Nabil Nasr, associate provost and director of GIS, in a statement. “Our facility will also serve as a focal point for New York state manufacturers seeking to evaluate and apply new digital manufacturingtechnologies.”
