3rd Dimension Industrial 3D Printing Co., Indianapolis, Indiana, USA, placed an order for a MetalFAB1 system from Additive Industries, Eindhoven, the Netherlands, during the Additive Industries partnership event at the recent Formula 1 race in Austin, Texas. The company has a racing background and stated that it recognises the advantages of the MetalFAB1 in terms of precision and high level of automation to reduce lead times.
“Our client base demands large quantities of high quality products,” stated Bob Markley, President and CEO of 3rd Dimension Industrial 3D Printing. “As we have moved into full-scale production, we have realised the need for drastically faster additive equipment and the Additive Industries four-laser system provides the solution our customers need.”
“I have looked at many additive solutions to add to our existing equipment and have not only been impressed with the technical prowess of Additive Industries, but also their innovative and modular solution,” he continued. “With this machine, we can add capacity as needed, as well as ensure that all of the machines are of the same specification. This really is unique in the industry and positions us well for continued growth.”
Shane Collins, General Manager of Additive Industries North America, added, “3rd Dimension understands how to do series production with Additive Manufacturing and integrates subtractive processes to create the highest quality parts for automotive, aerospace and consumer applications. This combination is essential to drive this technology forward. Moreover, 3rd Dimension, like Additive Industries, is collaborating closely with its customers to continuously improve the products. That makes a great fit between both our companies.”
