Industrial Equipment

Researchers are working to develop technology-leading, innovative, low cost products by optimizing the design and manufacturing process and increasing productivity. Challenges include the need for flexibility in manufacturing and supply chain operations, and rapid deployment of new manufacturing processes to drive shorter times to market. The Georgia Tech Manufacturing Institute helps industry with:

  • Development of environmentally friendly products, processes, facilities, and systems to meet or exceed increasingly stringent environmental regulations
  • Development and implementation of technology-leading, innovative, and low-cost products, processes, and systems  
  • Reduction of raw material costs through design and manufacturing process optimization.
  • Obtaining and retaining a skilled workforce
  • Continuous significant increases in productivity
  • Rapid deployment of new manufacturing processes to drive shorter times to market
  • Increased flexibility in manufacturing and supply chain operations
  • Reduction of energy costs through consumption minimization
  • Efficient and optimized global supply chains
