The latest aerospace manufacturing research from the Center for Aerospace
Manufacturing Technologies at Missouri S&T will be shared at a June 10
conference in Dayton, Ohio.

The Aerospace Manufacturing Technologies Research Conference will be held at
the Holiday Inn Dayton/Fairborn Conference Center located on Interstate 675 in
Fairborn, Ohio, near Dayton. The site is located near Wright-Patterson Air
Force Base, home to the Air Force Research Laboratory.

Missouri S&T’s Center for Aerospace Manufacturing Technologies (CAMT),
established in 2004 through a federal appropriation, is one of the nation’s
largest initiatives to develop new manufacturing methods for the aerospace
industry. The center emphasizes research for aircraft fabrication and assembly,
with an emphasis on high-speed machining, direct digital manufacturing with
metals and ceramics, laser materials processing, non-destructive evaluation and
composites manufacturing. Thirty-five Missouri S&T faculty members and 120
students, along with researchers from the Boeing Co. and AFRL, conduct research
through the center.

During the conference, CAMT researchers will disseminate the results of
research conducted over the past four years by Missouri S&T, Boeing, AFRL
and other industrial partners. CAMT invites other industrial companies to join
Boeing and other aerospace manufacturers in an industrial consortium to expand
on and leverage the work of CAMT.

Further information is available on the center’s website,, or from Tim
Comerford, CAMT business director, at 573-341-6886 or via email at
