Discover Our Projects: General and Specific

Discovering the Future of Machining Solutions

At the heart of our cutting-edge Research and Development facility, every project is a step toward revolutionizing the future of manufacturing. Whether you’re a part of our collaborative member network or an industry visionary looking to bring a unique idea to life, we’re here to make it a reality. Whether it’s the solutions of Specific Projects, or the collaborative achievements of our General Projects, there’s a solution waiting for you.

Industry faces challenges every day in their workflows, whether its inspection challenge, machine cycle times taking too long, or getting an opportunity to try a machine before you make a hefty investment. You may want to explore the ability of adding automation to enhance the productivity of your workforce, or verify that tools pass requirements needed for your workflow.


Specific Projects: Tailored Research

Your vision. Our facility. Specific Projects at OMIC R&D are where individual aspirations meet our technological capabilities. Open to both members and non-members, these projects allow you to utilize our state-of-the-art production floor through the expertise of the OMIC R&D researchers.

What sets Specific Projects apart? They’re your unique vision brought to life through our tools and talent. Research and findings from these projects are exclusively shared with you, the visionary, ensuring your project remains as unique as your ambition.

Top 3: Not for Profit – no markups on project goods or services

Dont care about intellectual Property – You retain all ownership of background and generated intellectual property

We encourage them to be here during the project. Not normal for typical research space.


General Projects: Collaborative Innovation

At OMIC R&D, our General Projects are the epitome of collaborative innovation. Selected during our Roadmapping Sessions, these projects are the collective vision of our Tier 1 and Tier 2 members. Here, the future of industry is discussed, defined, and developed. From additive and subtractive manufacturing to robotics and inspection, our projects cover a wide spectrum of advanced manufacturing technologies.

Undertaken by our dedicated researchers alongside our esteemed partners at Oregon State University, OregonTech, and Portland State University, these projects aim to benefit the industry as a whole. The findings are not not just results; they’re milestones in manufacturing excellence, published and available to all our members.
