3DEO, Inc., a metal Additive Manufacturing technology company based in Los Angeles, California, USA, received a Design Excellence Award for its metal additively manufactured production component, an anchor link, in the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF)’s 2020 PM Design Excellence Awards. The company’s process combines binder-based metal Additive Manufacturing with green-state milling.

The competition recognises distinguished examples of the efforts made in metal Additive Manufacturing to advance new technologies, designs, and commercial success. 

According to 3DEO, the company is gaining high-volume, low-cost parts orders versus traditional manufacturing techniques such as CNC machining and Metal Injection Moulding. The company explained that is breaking new ground in metal AM due to its differentiated technology and business model; rather than selling AM machines, the company sells parts and offers customers a ‘one-stop-shop’ for production-quality metal components. 

“We are honoured to receive this award of distinction from MPIF,” stated Payman Torabi, PhD, 3DEO’s co-founder and CTO. “It is a terrific accomplishment for 3DEO that highlights the giant leaps we have made over the last eighteen months commercialising our technology.”

Torabi also noted the potential of 3DEO, and Additive Manufacturing in general, to catalyse the next industrial revolution. He added, “3D printing is an incredible modern tool with a lot of advantages. You can’t utilise all its potential powers with an outdated mindset or approach. We as engineers, designers, builders, and innovators need to start rethinking our methods so all of humanity can witness and benefit from a new industrial revolution.”

Matt Petros, PhD, 3DEO’s CEO, reported, “It is particularly exciting to me that the winning component is a high-volume production part, not a one-off prototype. We had to out-compete CNC machining to win the production order, and we did that with a lower piece price and the ability to seamlessly scale quantities into very high volumes. It was a ‘win-win’ for both 3DEO and our customer.”

“With production customers in diverse industries and applications such as aerospace, defence, medical devices, and consumer products, 3DEO is well on its way to realising its vision to become a world-class metal parts supplier,” continued Petros. 

“The design award for such a high-volume production component is a terrific example of the tangible progress we are making. Thank you to MPIF for the recognition, and most importantly thank you to our customers for working side-by-side with us to change the world of manufacturing together.”
