AMP Capabilities

Core Technologies

Focused on advanced metals deposition technologies, we’ve strived to be nationally and internationally recognized for our contributions to these areas.

Capabilities-Friction Stir Welding

Friction Stir Welding

From 0.020 to 2+ inches thick, in materials ranging from aluminum to superalloys, we get superior results with Friction Stir Welding.

Capabilities-Laser Powder Deposition

Laser Powder Deposition

From 300W to 3kW, cladding to 3-D printing, and industrial, aerospace, or bio-medical applications.

Capabilities-Cold Spray

Cold Spray

Developing both processes and equipment, and up to 1000 psi and 900C, we can help you find your solution for repair or 3-D printing.

Core Research Foci

Capabilities-Advanced Manufacturing

Advanced Manufacturing

Our newest capability brings 6-axis direct CAD-to-Motion path planning and tool changing capability for integrating multiple processes on a single platform.    

Capabilities-3D Printing

3-D Printing

Using both direct write and laser processing technologies, we are looking at how the future of manufacturing is changing by creating complex parts directly from computer models.



Helping industry and the Department of Defense find ways to save millions of dollars and the environment by repairing and remanufacturing parts instead of replacing them with new ones.
