The American Lightweight Materials Manufacturing Innovation Institute (ALMMII) opened a new technology centre in Detroit, USA, January 15, and announced its new programme name will be LIFT – Lightweight Innovations for Tomorrow.

The $148 million centre will facilitate partnerships among major research institutions and manufacturers to accelerate the transfer of new manufacturing technology from the research lab to the production floor. It will work with such lightweight metals as aluminium, magnesium, titanium and advanced high-strength steel alloys and focus on new technologies to cast, heat treat, form, join and coat them.

The ribbon cutting event showcased the organisation’s vision for how lightweight materials can reshape manufacturing in the United States and how partner organisations are supporting that agenda. Amongst others present at the ceremony was Materion Corporation, Ohio, which displayed Powder Metallurgy technology.

“We are pleased to be an establishing partner of the ALMMII and to be on hand to celebrate the opening of its new facility in Detroit,” stated Glenn Maxwell, President of Materion’s Performance Metals Group. “It’s exciting to have the opportunity to showcase our expertise providing materials solutions such as powder metallurgy and to be part of the initiative to bring these innovative materials to market more quickly.”
