UNC Charlotte Celebrates the Siemens Energy Laboratory


The new Siemens Energy Large Manufacturing Solutions Laboratory is another sign of the University’s growth in the advanced manufacturing arena. Located in the University’s Energy Production and Infrastructure Center (EPIC), the new lab is the site of research on the precision dimensional measurement of large-scale energy components.

The lab was made possible with $2 million in support from Siemens Energy and Hexagon Metrology and includes a Leitz PMM-F 30-20-16 coordinate measuring machine as its first major component.

“Large-scale manufacturing is complex, and this lab will allow UNC Charlotte faculty, students and partners to continually research and innovate, keeping our talent pipeline and global competitiveness on the cutting edge,” said Mark Pringle, vice president of Siemens Charlotte Energy Hub.
