The Ohio State University has established the Industry/University Cooperative Research Center (I/UCRC) on Precision Forming focusing on the needs of the metal forming industry. Initially, from 2007 to 2012, the National Science Foundation (NSF) partially funded this activity together with the participating companies. Currently, the Center for Precision Forming (CPF) is funded exclusively by our member companies.

CPF is using extensively the knowledge base developed at the Engineering Research Center for Net Shape Manufacturing (ERC/NSM) at The Ohio State University, which is now merged with CPF (https://ercnsm.osu.edu).
