Welcome to Adapt

The Alliance for the Development of Additive Processing Technologies (ADAPT)

The Alliance for the Development of Additive Processing Technologies (ADAPT) is a membership-based organization that solves challenges in metal additive manufacturing (AM) using data informatics driven approaches. ADAPT members have unique opportunities to realize the full potential of AM, respond quickly to market demands, and compete more effectively to become global AM leaders. Launched in December 2015 as a public/private partnership, ADAPT is headquartered at Colorado School of Mines.

Additive challenges addressed:
• How to design parts for additive manufacturing
• How to control, certify, and optimize AM processes and parts
• How to achieve consistent performance from their machines

ADAPT is closing these knowledge gaps to help its member companies gain a competitive edge in the global manufacturing marketplace. ADAPT’s machine-learning approaches rapidly improve a company’s AM capabilities to optimize processes and materials and improve quality, consistency and predictability across all aspects of AM.
