US-based manufacturing is due for a resurgence. One that uses technology to empower American potential and ingenuity to build and create stronger, faster, and more powerful than before. One that elevates—not eliminates—the human roles in manufacturing.

The key to all this? Robotics.

That’s why ARM exists. To be the leading catalyst of robotics innovation and expertise. To accelerate growth in US-based manufacturing and the high value careers that go arm in arm with this industry change. To secure America’s future by strengthening the US industrial base.

As a national membership-based consortium, ARM is dedicated to creating the ecosystem that will drive innovation in robotics. Our staff and resources are focused on spurring innovations in not just robotics technology, but also workforce development, ensuring the future is built by robots, but directed by humans. ARM and its members seek to lower economic, technical, and operational barriers, allowing enterprises of all sizes to adopt robotic technologies.

ARM is a member of Manufacturing USA, a network of institutes, each with a specialized technology focus. The institutes share one goal: to secure the future of manufacturing in the U.S. through innovation, collaboration and education. Learn more here.
