WATERLOO — An open house is being held noon to 4 p.m. Thursday to celebrate the opening of the Additive Manufacturing and Design Center, a collaborative of the University of Northern Iowa Metal Casting Center and Hawkeye Community College, at the Cedar Valley TechWorks campus.

In addition to the partnership with HCC, UNI is partnering with Mediacom Business to get high-capacity broadband connections at TechWorks.

“Our goal is to make the design center at the UNI Metal Casting Center the go-to place in Iowa, if not the Midwest, to expand additive manufacturing training of this kind. This is a game changing initiative for Iowa.,” said Randy Pilkington, director of UNI Business and Community Services.

The Metal Casting Center’s Advanced Manufacturing Lab has considered TechWorks Campus its home since 2013 but the addition of the Design Center will allow for greater capabilities and outreach, officials said.

Tours and demonstrations will be given every 30 minutes beginning at noon.
