The Commonwealth Center for Advanced Manufacturing (CCAM) is an applied research center that bridges the gap between fundamental research typically performed at universities and product development routinely performed by companies. CCAM accelerates the transition of research innovation from the laboratory to commercial use.
CCAM is the only collaboration of its kind in North America and it promises its member companies significant business benefits. By pooling resources to pursue university research authorized by member companies, CCAM increases the value of the R&D dollar. R&D risks and costs are shared by members – away from live production floors – and research results are shared with all members, allowing each company to capitalize on new, breakthrough developments that emerge from CCAM research.
