3DEO, Inc., a Los Angeles-based metal Additive Manufacturing technology company, has reported significant growth in 2018, its second full year of operation. To meet rapidly expanding customer demand, the company plans to more than double its production capabilities in 2019, adding more of its proprietary metal Additive Manufacturing systems.
During 2018 3DEO printed over 30,000 paid parts for customers across a wide variety of industries including medical, aerospace, defence, consumer, and industrial equipment. The company reported that at the start of 2019, it had secured two additional customer production orders for 24,000 pieces and 28,000 pieces, with both orders scheduled for delivery this year.
“We are very proud of what we accomplished in 2018 working hand-in-hand with end-use customers. We are also very excited for what’s to come in 2019. By many key manufacturing and customer metrics, 3DEO’s technology is setting the standard for serial production metal 3D printing,” stated Matt Petros, CEO and co-founder of 3DEO, Inc.
3DEO’s patented Intelligent Layering® Technology is said to drastically reduce final part cost, while meeting the high industry benchmark MPIF Standard 35, achieving tight tolerances and an impressive surface finish. The company believes that Intelligent Layering will open metal AM to the industries that can’t afford today’s expensive options. Leveraging its unique technology as a parts supplier, 3DEO sells high volume, high value metal parts to manufacturers with a variety of applications across a wide range of industries.
“3DEO’s production metal 3D printing technology is proving itself to be highly scalable and robust. In order to be successful with serial production, part-to-part and machine-to-machine repeatability is paramount. In many ways 3DEO’s technology is uniquely capable in the industry of metal Additive Manufacturing,” added Marty McGough, COO and head of quality at 3DEO, Inc.
“By all measures, 3DEO is rapidly expanding to fill a large void in the market of small complex metal parts. Customers are validating our technology across a variety of industries and we are either in production or quickly moving to production with many clients. Additive manufacturing is finally competing directly with traditional manufacturing, enabling significant volumes to shift over to AM. It is a very exciting time for 3DEO, metal Additive Manufacturing and our customers,” concluded Petros.
