3D Printing Lab

The newest addition to the AMC, the 3D Printing Lab is home to cutting-edge additive manufacturing technology. Using this equipment, students and staff can print parts from a variety of materials, scan objects for reverse engineering, and inspect parts to check tolerances. The 3D Printing Lab also houses the Center for Additive Manufacturing of Metals (CAMM), a center focused on additive metal manufacturing and its implementations in manufacturing.

Manufacturing Lab

Project Manager Kyle Forsythe and student is Ezra Serdynski (red plaid shirt) use the AMC's new Fryer SX-100 5axis Machining center, testing some new tooling on a steel block to check material removal rate and surface finish.

The Advanced Machining Lab was graciously endowed in 2005 by members of the Rochester, NY Alumni Chapter of the University of Maine. The laboratory is designed to provide leading edge machining technology for hands-on training for engineering and engineering technology students.

The Advanced Machining Lab is a first-class facility equipped with the latest engineering and manufacturing technologies. Maine’s engineering, manufacturing, and industrial community benefit by having access to state-of-the-art services and equipment within the state for product and process development.

The Frank E. ’53 and Clara E. Pickering Industrial Training Facility

DSCN5081The Frank E. ’53 and Clara E. Pickering Industrial Training Facility seats for 20+ people, making it an ideal space for small and medium sized groups to meet, train, and conduct business. The room is equipped with a stereo sound system, video projector, computer, and Skype teleconferencing system.

This space can be configured for meetings, lectures, training, luncheons, and as a central area for groups meeting with multiple University departments and local business. The facility can be scheduled for use by any group in 1 hour increments. Contact the AMC to check availability or register for use.

Design Lab

The AMC Design Lab is home to open work areas, “brainstorming” white boards, and a cluster of workstations featuring some of the most up to date hardware and engineering software systems on the market.  The lab is most often utilized by students working on design and manufacturing projects, but is available for parties interested in using the resource. The lab provides an ideal environment for both individual and collaborative work on projects. Within this lab we have a multitude of tools at our expense including 6 state of the art computer terminals, Computer Aided Design packages (including SOLIDWORKS), and Computer Aided Machining packages.
