We’re furthering research and development of additive manufacturing in national security applications. Benefits of additive manufacturing include part consolidation, reduced waste, fabrication of challenging features and increased functionality through design; applications at this point are focused on tooling.

In the course of its work for DOE, Y‑12 develops useful new technologies that have commercial applications. Check out our available technologies on the U.S. Department of Energy Technology Portal.

Through licensing, Y‑12 transfers commercial rights for such technologies to the private sector. Through Cooperative Research and Development Agreements, Y‑12 works with private-sector industries on research and development projects of mutual interest.

If you want to learn how to work with us, read about CRADAs, the established process for conducting joint research projects.
