Defense Innovation Lab, Inc. (DiLab), a New York-based accelerator program for defense and government focused technology, has announced it will support local 3D printer manufacturer R3 Printing in developing its proprietary technology. DiLab will assist R3 Printing using a Manufacturing Technology Assistance grant awarded by the Empire State Development’s Division of Science, Technology and Innovation (NYSTAR). As part of the grant, DiLab and R3 will leverage the expertise and equipment available at the Rochester Institute of Technology’s AMPrint Center for Additive Manufacturing and Multifunctional Printing. Here, DiLab will provide assistance in the design, prototyping and testing of an R3 extrusion-based 3D printer.

Tommy Hendrix of the DiLab commented:

ARE - INCREDIBLY - EXCITED - TO - WORK

“WE ARE INCREDIBLY EXCITED TO WORK WITH THE AMPRINT CENTER FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE R3 PRINTER. AS AN ORGANIZATION, DILAB’S TRUE NORTH IS PROVIDING SUPPORT TO EARLY STAGE TECHNOLOGY COMPANIES WHO ARE DEVELOPING TECHNOLOGY WITH A STRONG DEFENSE INDUSTRY USE CASE.”

“Empire State Development has a great team and we’re honored to work with them and their network in helping New York defense startups.”

Delivering 3D printing to the government

DiLab - Entrepreneurs - Defense - Security - Solutions

The DiLab supports entrepreneurs developing defense and national security solutions, with the intention of enabling early stage companies to “deliver transformative technologies to the Department of Defense (DoD).” It aims to assist commercial technologies from concept to prototype and low-rate production.

DiLab and R3 Printing will make use of the AMPrint Center to jointly conduct advanced manufacturing research and technology development for the R3 3D printer, ensuring that it is optimized for defense logistics applications, as well as commercial manufacturing.
