The Commonwealth Center for Advanced Manufacturing (CCAM) near Richmond, Virginia, unveiled its 62,000-square-foot research facility at a grand opening event in March. The research center is intended to bridge the gap between research and product development. It houses computational and engineering research labs, high bay production space and the tools required for research in surface engineering and manufacturing systems. Approximately 50 student interns from participating Virginia universities will work alongside experts at the new facility and in labs around the state. The research center is adjacent to the 1,000-acre campus of the Rolls-Royce engine component manufacturing facilities, Rolls-Royce Crosspointe.
