What is CAMAL?
The Center for Additive Manufacturing and Logistics (CAMAL) started in 2014 with the support of the Edward P. Fitts Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE) and NC State University. The center was born from ISE’s strong manufacturing tradition, a legacy that included a pre-eminent Furniture Manufacturing and Management Center and the groundbreaking Rapid Prototyping Lab. It was in this lab that 3D-printing metal parts using the world’s first commercial ARCAM AB Electron Beam Melting (EBM) Machine started in 2003. These strong manufacturing links combined with a globally-respected faculty, gives us the background and skills to perform groundbreaking research.
