KY Multiscale Manufacturing and Nanointegration Node (KY MMNIN) is one of 16 nationally recognized sites in the National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure (NNCI).  Our 8 core facilities (housed at the University of Louisville and the University of Kentucky) are equipped with an extensive range of state-of-the-art systems capable but not limited to additive manufacturing, 3D printing, micro/nano fabrication, imaging, and metrology.

THE KY MMNIN SITE BRINGS TOGETHER THE EXTENSIVE MULTI-SCALE MANUFACTURING RESOURCES FROM THE UNIVERSITIES OF LOUISVILLE AND KENTUCKY.  KNOWN FOR ITS AUTOMOTIVE MANUFACTURING, THE COMMONWEALTH OF KENTUCKY HAS INVESTED APPROXIMATELY $500M OVER THE LAST 2 DECADES IN THE AREAS OF ADVANCED MANUFACTURING, RANGING FROM NANO-FABRICATION TO MICRO-FABRICATION TO NEXT-GENERATION 3D ADDITIVE PRINTING.  SPANNING THE LENGTHSCALES OF THESE DIVERSE TECHNOLOGIES AND INTEGRATING THEM EFFICIENTLY TOGETHER TO PRODUCE PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS ARE THE 2 SUPREME CHALLENGES OF NEXT-GENERATION ADVANCED MANUFACTURING.  SUCH CHALLENGES ARE CENTRAL TO THE THEME OF OUR NNCI SITE.
