In addition to super nickel alloys, i3DMFG also manufactures using GRCOP-84 and GRCOP-42, which are specifically engineered for space applications. As a result, i3DMFG has attracted customers from new space companies like Ursa Major.

The company is known for its multi-axis capabilities and has been actively involved in aerospace and medical contract manufacturing.

i3DMFG will remain as a separate business unit within ERA, enabling the company to benefit from the financial and operational strengths of ERA and GEM.
