MANUFACTURING IN MOTION
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 ARM Institute is leading the way to a future where people and robots work together to respond to our nation’s greatest challenges and to develop and produce the world’s most desired products by:
- Creating a nationwide group of elite manufacturing, academic, technology and government organizations that share the common mission of a robust U.S. manufacturing ecosystem
- Accomplishing work that develops, scales-up, and commercializes key enabling technologies for manufacturing and the overall supply chain
- Building a repository of industrial robotics solutions, applications and information
- Developing a national, standardized framework for robotics careers
- Establishing a repository of best-in-class workforce training and education programs, resources, and pathways
- Enabling networking activities among stakeholders that encourage innovation through research activities, outreach, and diffusion
- Forming collaborations with other Manufacturing Innovation Institutes that leverage the intersections and convergences in our missions
As a national membership-based consortium, you have the opportunity to join us in fulfilling our mission and working towards our goals! Email [email protected] to learn more about how you can get involved.
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.
