Building a new, advanced era of manufacturing in Youngstown

Recognizing that YBI would have to expand its mission if we were going to have a greater impact on the local economy, our board moved to develop services to support the integration of technology into the manufacturing base.

We started to see success when the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute was located on our campus in 2012.

What is additive manufacturing?

Additive manufacturing is the creation of products and components by very precisely “adding” layers of material only where they are needed. Traditional manufacturing is usually “subtractive” manufacturing, meaning that materials are removed by drilling, grinding machining, etc.
