Hybrid Autonomous Manufacturing, Moving from Evolution to Revolution
Hybrid Autonomous Manufacturing, Moving from Evolution to Revolution (HAMMER)
NSF's HAMMER is developing a new approach to design and manufacturing, putting product needs first and then finding new manufacturing pathways based on the agility of artisans and reproducibility of machines. HAMMER is the hub for technical, commercial, educational and standard setting for Hybrid Autonomous Manufacturing knowledge creation, deployment and commercial development.
HAMMER is a partnership between the National Science Foundation and an alliance of academics, industry and technical societies, led by The Ohio State University. HAMMER will perform foundational research, educate a new and diverse workforce, and develop a new innovative industrial ecosystem. The outcomes of this program will be more robust local supply chains, lower-carbon production and economic opportunities.
