Facilities

The Metal Processing Institute has centers in metal casting; thermal processing; and recovery and recycling of metals. The Institute is supported by over 90 corporate partners, as well as funding from private foundations and the federal government. During the last decade, MPI has developed into one of the nation’s premiere research centers dedicated to metal processing. Staffed by a highly qualified group of graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and research faculty, MPI has access to a full complement of materials engineering and processing facilities for metalcasting, optical and electron imaging, thermal processing, electrochemical research, as well as spectroscopic, x-ray, and mechanical characterization.
