Three main focus areas
Our researchers and technicians strive to develop best-in-class technologies that help companies manufacture products faster, better and more cost-effectively.
Based on input from Buffalo Niagara manufacturers, we offer four primary focus areas, all of which leverage local industry expertise and strong academic support. Buffalo Manufacturing Works is focused on cross-cutting manufacturing technologies – those that can be be applied to a wide range of products and manufacturing sectors.
