CCAM engages in research in four strategic technology focus areas. These areas are determined by the members and as such, are subject to change as technologies and member needs evolve.
Strategic Research Areas
- Adaptive Automation Systems
- Surface Engineering
- Additive Manufacturing
- Machining Science and Technology
Generic vs. Directed Research
Most CCAM members will have access to the results of generic research – funded and guided by the membership to address the needs of a broad spectrum of industry members.
Organizing Members and Strategic Members (see Members) can also perform directed research, allowing a member to work with CCAM staff on projects that address the specific needs of that member.
