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.

With a history spanning over forty years, ERA Industries specialises in precision machining and assemblies for key sectors such as aerospace, military, and medical industries. 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. L Squared Capital Partners, the financial sponsor driving ERA’s expansion, has stated that the company’s strategy for mergers and acquisitions will continue moving forward.
