Xerox Collaborates with NPS

In February, Xerox and the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) announced a strategic collaboration focused on advancing additive manufacturing research, specifically 3D printing. This technology has the potential to dramatically transform the way the military supplies its forward-deployed forces. To support this effort, the Xerox® ElemX™ Liquid Metal Printer was installed on campus in December. The printer will provide NPS faculty and students with the opportunity to apply the technology of on-demand 3D printing of metal parts and equipment. Read more.
