Guha Manogharan, an associate professor of mechanical engineering at Penn State, has been appointed as the co-director of the Center for Innovative Materials Processing through Direct Digital Deposition. Following Tim Simpson, who held the position since the center`s establishment in 2012.
Penn State’s Applied Research Laboratory has been supporting maintenance and sustainment activities for the DoD over the past 30 years. Recently, the Defense Logistics Agency along with U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Aviation & Missile Center (CCDC AvMC) has completed an effort to determine the viability of additive manufacturing, specifically laser powder bed fusion (LPBF), for producing components used for aircraft sustainment. To ascertain the potential of additively manufactured components and the requirements to verify the performance of additively manufactured components used in aircraft, a UH-60 fuel elbow was redesigned and built at the Center for Innovative Materials Processing through Direct Digital Deposition (CIMP-3D) of the Applied Research Laboratory at Penn State (ARL-PSU).

CIMP-3D is honored to have supported a project that the American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT) designated as one of the Outstanding Papers of 2022.
CURRENT OPPORTUNITIES INCLUDE:
• Additive Manufacturing Engineer (Req_0000042928)
• Additive Manufacturing Engineering Support Specialist (Req_0000044038)
