The goal of NVLabs is to “close the loop” on industrial manufacturing systems.
A Letter from the Director
NVLabs is the proving ground for NVBOTS’ most ambitious research and innovations. At NVBOTS we integrate cloud software and hardware to make 3D printing affordable and easy. At NVLabs we utilize the data and lessons learned from the NVBOTS ecosystem in order to create the next generation of intelligent manufacturing systems.
We are currently experiencing a sea change in global manufacturing. Ubiquitous computing and digital communication networks enable an unprecedented level of machine autonomy. While intelligent manufacturing systems provide exciting business opportunities, their scale and complexity remain unmanageable without the proper tools.
The NVLabs team tirelessly develops solutions in four critical areas; Security, Big Data, Material Science and Human Interfaces. We see a significant opportunity in each of these areas to build the tools to enable truly closed loop manufacturing systems and lead the development of Industry 4.0.
At NVLabs we develop the tools necessary to win.
Khosla Ventures leads $5 million Series A financing of Digital Alloys, Inc., a multi-metal 3D printing spin-out of NVBOTS.
Digital Alloys, Inc. develops high-speed, multi-metal additive manufacturing systems that print production quality parts, in almost any metal, at a fraction of the cost of other systems. The dramatic cost advantages of the Digital Alloys system make 3D metal printing economical for a greatly expanded variety of applications.
