Pittsburgh’s Neighborhood 91 and Metal Additive Manufacturing

Innovation, technological advancement, location, and workforce made Pittsburgh the "Steel City" in the late 1800s. Today, steel mills no longer smog the skies, but new advancements in metal fabrication are revitalizing this integral part of the city's identity. Neighborhood 91, a project on 10 acres of Pittsburgh International Airport's Innovation Campus, with room to occupy 185 more acres, has brought together six companies developing and producing metal 3D printed parts. The goal is to expand to 30 or 40 companies establishing this stretch of Pittsburgh as a global hub of 3D-printed metal components.
