CCAT Announces 2015 Manufacturing Assistance Program

Small companies with ideas for solving manufacturing process problems are encouraged to apply.

The Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology is now accepting applications for the Manufacturing Technical Assistance Program. Manufacturing companies with less than 100 employees are invited to submit project proposals for solving manufacturing process issues or supporting the ability to offer new services. Accepted projects will receive technical support through the center.

While firms from any industry are welcome to apply, the proposal must relate to manufacturing functions. According to the company, CCAT expects to fund multiple proposals with potential up to a maximum of $75,000 per project.

“The Manufacturing Technical Assistance Program provides an opportunity for small and mid-sized companies, in good standing with the state, to take advantage of the cutting-edge manufacturing technologies and staff expertise of CCAT’s Advanced Manufacturing Center (AMC),” said Elliot Ginsberg, president and CEO, CCAT.

“At the AMC, our current focus is on optimization of computer numerical control (CNC) programs, additive manufacturing (both plastics & metals), and precision machining. We collaborate with academia and a network of technology partners to offer custom solutions for enhancing manufacturing operations and productivity.”

The deadline for applications is December 31.
