Open Mind Technologies, headquartered in Wessling, Germany, has announced that it has joined the Georgia Tech Manufacturing 4.0 Consortium. The consortium is a membership-based organisation that facilitates collaborations between industry, academia, and government to develop and deploy advanced manufacturing technologies as well as provide workforce development. Initial members have contributed funding, technology, and skilled resources supported by the staff at the Georgia Tech Al Manufacturing Pilot Facility located in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

Alan Levine, Managing Director of Open Mind Technologies USA, shared, “We are very pleased to join the Georgia Tech Consortium which provides a great opportunity to participate in leading research and connect with other members focused on advancing manufacturing. The Consortium offers a unique opportunity to expand OPEN MIND’s collaboration with Georgia Tech to the full membership and their specialised projects.”

“Open Mind’s commitment to the Manufacturing 4.0 Consortium and support of manufacturing education enables students to leverage top-tier CAD/CAM software for collaborative development of hybrid AM/CNC technologies. Together, we look forward to pushing the boundaries of precision manufacturing,” stated Kyle Saleeby, Manufacturing 4.0 Consortium’s research programme director and research engineer at Georgia Tech.

Consortium research projects cover an extensive range of topics that seek cost effectiveness, piloting new manufacturing systems, accelerating product development cycles, and adopting Industry 4.0 technologies. In addition to technology development focused on Additive Manufacturing, participating Georgia Tech graduate students have continued to push forth research positions within the US National laboratory system, such as Sandia, NIST, Oak Ridge, and Los Alamos National Labs, or have taken industrial roles in top engineering and manufacturing companies including Lockheed-Martin, Boeing, Caterpillar, Ford, Delta TechOps, and Georgia Pacific.
