Obama Proposes Six More High-Tech Manufacturing Hubs

(TheVarGuy) President Obama, in his State of the Union address, proposed the building of six new high-tech manufacturing centers in the United States this year. In last year’s speech, Obama described 3D printing as having “the potential to revolutionize.” This year, although 3D printing was not mentioned specifically, the president highlighted the two high-tech manufacturing hubs which have already opened in Raleigh, North Carolina and Youngstown, Ohio. The National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute in Youngstown is focused on improving 3D printing technology.
